  • On a roll - Easter Crepes

    Baked Cheese Crepes Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis
    Show: Everyday Italian
    Episode: Eggilicious

    6 large eggs
    1/3 cup whole milk
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    4 tablespoons (about) unsalted butter
    8 ounces fontina cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    8 ounces fresh water-packed mozzarella, drained, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
    1 cup Marinara Sauce, recipe follows
    1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

    Whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Heat a 6-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Brush the skillet with some butter. Working quickly, pour 3 tablespoons of the egg mixture into the pan, swirling to coat the bottom of the pan evenly. Cover and cook until the egg crepe is just set, about 1 minute. Invert the skillet over a plate, and allow the egg crepe to drop onto the plate. Repeat to make 10 crepes total, brushing the skillet with melted butter as needed and stacking crepes on the plate.
    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

    Butter a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish. Arrange 1 egg crepe on a work surface. Place some of the fontina and mozzarella cheese in the center of the egg crepe, then sprinkle with some basil. Roll up the crepe. Place the filled crepe in the prepared baking dish, seam side down. Repeat with the remaining egg crepes, cheese, and basil. Spoon the marinara sauce over the crepes. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and dot with 2 tablespoons of butter. Bake until the cheese melts and the top is golden, about 15 minutes.

    Marinara Sauce:
    1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    2 small onions, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    2 stalks celery, finely chopped
    2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
    1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
    2 (32 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
    2 dried bay leaves

    In a large casserole pot, heat the oil over a medium-high flame. Add the onions and garlic and saute until the onions are translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the celery, carrots, and 1/2 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Saute until all the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes and bay leaves, and simmer uncovered over low heat until the sauce thickens, about 1 hour. Remove and discard the bay leaf. Season the sauce with more salt and pepper, to taste. (The sauce can be made 1 day ahead. Cool, then cover and refrigerate. Rewarm over medium heat before using.)
    Yield: 2 quarts
    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes is what it is...

    Show: Good Eats
    Episode: Crepe Expectations

    2 teaspoons butter
    1/2 cup yellow onion, sliced
    4 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
    8 eggs
    12 ounces milk
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
    6 ounces cheddar, shredded
    6 savory crepes, recipe follows

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    In a small saute pan, melt the butter and sweat the onions until translucent. In a small bowl, mix the onions and crumbled bacon together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk, and season with salt and pepper.

    In a large, non-stick, 6-cup muffin tin, place one crepe into each cup. Make sure that the edges of the crepes are slightly pleated and overlap the edge of the tin slightly. Spoon the bacon and onion mixture into each cup. Distribute the cheese evenly into the cups. Pour the egg mixture into each cup so that all of the quiches are the same size. Place into a preheated oven for 15 minutes or until the egg mixture is completely set.

    Savory Crepes:
    2 large eggs
    3/4 cup milk
    1/2 cup water
    1 cup flour
    3 tablespoons melted butter
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup chopped herbs, spinach, or sun-dried tomatoes
    Butter, for coating the pan

    In a blender, combine all of the ingredients (excepting the butter for coating the pan) and pulse for 10 seconds. Place the crepe batter in the refrigerator for 1 hour. This allows the bubbles to subside so the crepes will be less likely to tear during cooking. The batter will keep for up to 48 hours.
    Heat a small non-stick pan. Add butter to coat. Pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly. Cook for 30 seconds and flip. Cook for another 10 seconds and remove to the cutting board. Lay them out flat so they can cool. Continue until all batter is gone. After they have cooled you can stack them and store in sealable plastic bags in the refrigerator for several days or in the freezer for up to two months. When using frozen crepes, thaw on a rack before gently peeling apart. is what it is...

      Shrimp Curry From Food Network Kitchens

      5 cloves garlic
      One 3-inch long piece fresh ginger, peeled
      2 tablespoons vegetable oil
      1/4 heaping teaspoon whole cloves
      10 cardamom pods
      8 whole allspice
      1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
      1 bay leaf
      1 medium yellow onion, sliced
      2 teaspoons curry powder
      1/2 jalapeno, or more to taste
      1/2 cup whole, peeled, canned tomatoes (with puree), roughly chopped
      3/4 cup coconut milk
      2 cups water
      2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
      1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
      2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander leaves
      1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
      Serving suggestion: Basmati Rice

      In a small food processor (mini-chopper), combine the garlic and ginger and puree into a paste. Set aside.
      Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the cloves, cardamom, allspice, cinnamon stick, and bay leaf and cook, stirring constantly, until toasted and fragrant and the cinnamon stick unfurls, about 30 seconds. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic-ginger paste, curry powder, and jalapeno and cook, stirring, until lightly browned and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomato, coconut milk, and cook, stirring, until the oil separates from the sauce and there is a distinctive frying sound as the sauce begin to "refry", about 7 minutes. Continue to cook, stirring, for about 1 minute more.

      Add the water and salt and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has thickened, about 6 minutes. Add shrimp, cover, and bring to a simmer and cook until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the coriander and lime juice. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with rice. is what it is...
