camping crepes a la chefboyrv

This crepe recipe is perfect for camping because they aren’t as thin as traditional crepes. They are easy to flip, fill and roll without tearing.
4 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
butter spray for cooking
Break eggs into a glass bowl—do not beat. Stir in salt, sugar and flour until smooth. Add milk until blended.
Heat a 9 inch non-stick frying pan on medium-high heat. Pour batter into center of pan to form small pool and tilt to cover base. When lightly browned on bottom, turn and brown second side.
Put a pat of butter and spoon full of jam across the middle and roll. Serve warm

Stuffed French Toast

Here’s a list of everything you need: a loaf of French or Italian bread, eggs, milk, butter, cream cheese, cinnamon, and jam or fresh fruit (if you’re like me, you’ll use both). I also added slivered almonds just for the fun of it, but you don’t have to … unless you want to.

Slice a loaf of bread in 2-inch pieces. You should get about six pieces all together, not including the end pieces. Using a paring knife, cut a deep slit across the top in the middle of each slice, approximately 4 inches long. This will form your “pocket.” Once you’re done, set the bread aside.

Cut strawberries up, put in bowl, and add a little sugar and mix it in. Set them aside and allow the sugar to release its magic.

Next, add jam to the cream cheese and mix both of them until well combined.

Now comes the fun part! Grab a slice of bread and add about a tablespoon (or as much as you like) of cream cheese filling. Personally, I like about 2 tablespoons per slice. Do the same thing with the fresh fruit. Make sure to close the opening by gently pressing the bread together. This will make frying them easier and less messy. Set the filled slices aside.

Now it’s time to make the egg bath. Mix eggs, milk, and cinnamon together until well mixed. Heat your skillet up to medium. Dip sliced bread in the egg wash for about 20 seconds on both sides. Only dip as many slices as you plan on frying. In other words, if your pan can only fry two pieces at a time, be sure to only coat two pieces of bread a time.

Add a little butter to the surface of skillet. This will help prevent the French toast from sticking. (I heart butter!)

Fry each slice for about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove from heat and serve.

So simple….yet amazingly delicious!!
