Mmm Mmm Mmmushroom & Avocado Crepes

This evening for dinner I came up with a recipe using my wonderful new crepe maker.  Alex told me after having two that I could make this recipe whenever I wanted and he’d gladly oblige in eating them.

Crepes (makes 6- I divide the recipe in half for the two of us)

1 1/2 c flour

1 1/2 c milk

4 eggs

Pinch salt

Butter for greasing crepe maker

Mix all ingredients together with a whisk in a large measuring cup.  Pour batter through a sifter or fine strainer into another large measuring cup to remove lumps.  Allow to sit at room temperature while preparing filling.

Filling

8 oz sliced mushrooms, rinsed

1 T butter

1 T garlic (we used the pre-chopped kind in oil from Costco)

1/4 c red onion, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

1 large avocado, cut into small chunks

Splash of lemon juice

Melt butter in saute pan.  Add mushrooms, garlic, onions, salt and pepper to taste, and cook on medium high until liquid from mushrooms is mostly cooked off, stirring occasionally.  At the same time, put avocado into a bowl with lemon juice, and stir to cover all pieces.  (This prevents the avocado from browning.)  Add mushrooms, and stir gently to combine.

Make crepes per crepe maker instructions.  After flipping for the first time, sprinkle choice of shredded cheese (we used Mozzarella) onto 1/2 of the crepe while the other side cooks.  I also added some salami (prosciutto, capocollo, etc) that tore into small strips to the cheese.  Cook until other side of crepe is done and cheese is melted.  Transfer to a plate, add desired portion of mushroom and avocado mixture to side of crepe with the cheese, fold over (like a huge taco) and then fold in half again, so the crepe is folded into quarters.  Enjoy!
