Raclette crepes recipes

Sweet crepe made on the raclette grill

I had never made crepes before I made these raclette crepes recipes. Someone, at some point, told me that crepes were difficult to make, and I left it at that. But if that same person whispered in your ear, let me tell you that they were mistaken. Maybe that person couldn't make crepes, but I did, and you certainly can, too. 

We used the cast-iron grill top for the raclette crepes recipes because it conveniently has the two large circles on the top, the perfect size for perfect crepes. I did use two spatulas to flip each one, but after the second attempt, it was easy to do it without thinking about it. 

This is what happens when my husband and I get excited about what we're making. This is way too much food for two people for one meal, so we ate crepes the whole weekend.

Our raclette crepes recipes batter was based off the one we found on Epicurious because it had a nice prologue with a testament to its French pedigree. Mr. Tabletop Cook mixed up the batter the night before and stored it in the fridge so everything would go smoothly in the morning. 

The taste of brandy was a little strong for me, but it wasn't unpleasant and it cut equally through the strong flavors of the pie filling as well as the trout. There is definitely room to experiment here and I am sure we will make opportunities to make these raclette crepes recipes again. Omit the sugar and vanilla if you are making savory crepes, or include it if you are having a sweet brunch. You can also add fresh herbs to the savory mix. 

We made savory crepes and prepared a large selection of sweet and savory fillings. Because it was our first time, we went a little overboard: We had huckleberry and strawberry-rhubarb pie filling from the local farmers market, strawberries, blueberries, cream cheese, mushrooms, scallions, and smoked trout. We also used a spray can of whip cream and my husband wanted to make a crepe with peanut butter and bananas. He said it was to show any of you parents out there how kid-friendly this meal could be, but I’m pretty sure he just likes peanut butter and bananas. 

Before we sat down to cook and eat, I sauteed some mushrooms I added some fresh chopped herbs to the cream cheese. The mushrooms, herbed cream cheese, and trout was by far my favorite filling. 

I thought I would be full after maybe two crepes, but I ate three and Jeremy ate four. We froze the rest, but finished them before the weekend was over. My only regret was that I forgot to try one with maple syrup! Oh well, I guess we'll have to make them again!

Pro-tip: If you're making crepes with kids, make them ahead of time, freeze them, and reheat them on the grill for perfect circles every time.
