Vegetable Chicken Crepes with Cheese Sauce


I love crepes. They are excellent for each meal and are in my category a “fall” meal. So light and delicious!… But I do make them during all seasons.

I won’t lie, we were trying to clean fridge noticed some vegetables that needed someone to eat them so decision time came. CREPES popped up in my mind. Such an easy peasy meal and yet it is so fantastic. So easy to make! For breakfasts I will have blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches or whatever fruit or filling. Dollop some yummy homemade whipping cream on top, sprinkle some powedered sugar and wahhhla! A yummy breakfast.
