Default Egg Crepes

hi there, first post, so start the screming im in the wrong group or something,

but im doing Atkins and so here goes:

tired of always eating scrambled eggs and bacon for breakie???

I am

so my wife found this recipe in a book called 7 days of low carb eating, i made them last nite and ate them this morning and they were good, very good

they are crepes people!!!

heres how to make em:

small batch: 2 eggs, 2 tbsp heavy cream, 1 tbsp butter or oil
whisk all together, heat pan, lightly butter, pour in small amounts so crepes are thin, whirl them around sop they cover the bottom of an 8" pan
cook till brown on one side about 2 minutes or so, then flip and do the same,

roll em up and eat em!!! or as i do sprinkle with cinnamon and fake sugar for a real treat, maybe even some Atkins pancake sauce !!!

carb count for above recipe eggs 0.6g each, cream 35% 0.5 tbsp, and whatever else u put on them,

i had a whole satisfying meal (doubled the recipe) for around 3.8g carbs total, my eggs listed 0g for carbs

These sound good, I especially like the cinnamon idea. If you used sugar free pancake syrup, you might not even need to use the Splenda! hehe, less carbs. I think I will give this a whirl this week.

These are even better if you put a little softened cream cheese or sour cream inside with some sugar free apricot preserves. MMMMmmmm....blintzes!

I have made egg crepes using water instead of cream. They came out great! I always like berries in crepes. So I usually microwave up some unsweetened raspberries (or whatever I have) add a drop of Sweetzfree.

If one uses dairy products I can imagine that creme fraiche on top would be amazingly good.

*toys with the idea of dabbling in dairy again*

Hmmm ... I'm thinking breakfast wrap filled with a little salmon salad. I wonder if they're stronger if you cook them the night before and use them cold?

All of a sudden, I'm envious of Ontarians - here in Victoria, I can't find anything heavier than whipping cream, and that has too many stabilizers added! I've been using 18% table cream, but I'd love to find a source for 35% cream!!!
