Savory Crepes with Avalon Waterways
Sweet and Savory Crêpes with Avalon Waterways
Holy Mouthwatering Goodness Batman! I’ve never had a savory crêpe before, but this puppy was out of this world!
On the second day of our river cruise with Avalon Waterways on the River Seine in France, one of the alternative lunch offerings was homemade sweet or savory crêpes.
Crêpes are especially popular throughout France. The common ingredients include flour, eggs, milk, butter, and a pinch of salt. Crêpes are usually of two types: sweet crêpes (crêpes sucrées) made with wheat flour and slightly sweetened; savory galettes (crêpes salées) made with buckwheat flour and unsweetened (via Wikipedia).
As I’ve had many sweet crêpes over the years, I opted for the savory, and boy; I was surely not disappointed. In fact, when I am offered crêpes again, I’m sure to be on the lookout for a “savory galette“. YUM. YUM. YUM.
Have you ever had a savory crêpe? If not, do!
