Sausage And Applesauce Crepes

This recipe is for 12 crepes so you might want to increase it if you’re serving a lot of people.

The ingredients that you will need are:

  • 1 cup of whole-wheat flour, preferably white whole-wheat
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 6 Large eggs
  • 1 cup of low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon of canola oil or melted butter
  • 20 ounces (14-15 links) of turkey breakfast sausage with the casings off
  • 1 cup of seltzer water
  • 3 cups of good quality applesauce, warmed
  • 1 1/2 cups of shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 12 Tablespoons of Pure Maple syrup
  • 6 teaspoons of snipped fresh chives

The directions for making sausage and applesauce crepes are:

Process whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, salt, eggs, milk and oil in a blender or food processor until well blended, scraping the sides once or twice. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. You can even leave it in the refrigerator overnight.

Put sausage in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the sausage until it is no longer pink inside, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you cook it. This should take about 5 minutes. Now, cover to keep it warm.

Slowly whisk seltzer into the batter, Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, heat the pan over medium heat. Ladle 1/3 cup batter into the center of the skillet, immediately turn in a rotation making sure the batter coats the entire bottom of the pan evenly.

Cook until the underside is lightly browned. This should only take about one minute. Now, flip using a rubber spatula and cook the other side until it is done. This should only take about thirty seconds. Set it upon a plate when the crepe is fully cooked.

Continue cooking crepes until all the batter is gone. You might need to spray the skillet during the entire cooking process so the crepes don’t stick. In addition, you can keep the crepes in a 200 degree F oven to keep them warm.

The way to assemble these crepes is:

Place a crepe on a clean cutting board, spread 1/4 cup of applesauce along the center of the crepe, try to remember and leave a 1-2 inch border around the edges. On top of the applesauce put 1/4 cup of cooked sausage and 2 Tablespoons of cheese. Now, fold in the sides to make a window form. If you need to press down on the corners to keep the crepe folded nicely. Once each crepe is filled drizzle every one of them with 1 Tablespoon of maple syrup, sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of chives and serve as soon as possible.
