Low Carb Pancake Crepes
This was a welcome relief from having eggs and bacon for breakfast on my low carb diet. I inadvertently poured all the egg into the cream cheese but using a whisk took care of the lumps. I do agree with another reviewer though and really like the lumps in the mixture (nothing like having a nice bite of cream cheese in this lovely recipe). I held the butter (used Pam in the frying pan). Then used the butter for topping and some Splenda instead of a sugar-free syrup since I didn't have any in the house. Tasted like french toast with the Splenda added. Great alternative to bacon and eggs, thank you!
********Edited to add that I made this again but made one large crepe, covered the pan so it would cook through on med heat. When done, I added 1/2 cup of fresh crushed blueberries mixed with some Splenda and rolled it into a crepe and topped it with sugar free cool whip. A great low carb Blueberry Crepe dessert! Any low carb fresh berry would work for filing, strawberries, blackberries, etc. What a wonderful treat to have. ..................Also last night I was looking to make something a tad different and used 2 tablespoons of sugar free Orange Marmalade (sweetened with Splenda). When the crepe was halfway through cooking, I dropped the marmalade on top. As it heats, it does spread some. Rolled it up, dotted with the butter and topped with sugar free Cool Whip, a nice change of pace with a nice light taste.
