Down for a Decadent Delight - Bananas Foster Nutella Crepes

Low on funds, but still want a delicious breakfast?

Make crepes I say!  

After a friend asked for some low cost recipes I was inspired to make a meal I haven't made in forever, Bananas Foster Nutella Crepes.  This recipe has few ingredients, which are low cost, and often in the pantry.  Plus, it's a way to use up bananas that are going a bit black. 

Crepe batter from The Moosewood Cookbook.



Here's what you need:

Crepes:
1 large egg
1 1/4 cup of milk
1 cup of flour
1/4 tsp of salt

a little oil for the pan

Mix all crepe ingredients in blender or whisk in a bowl until smooth.
Heat a nonstick or stainless omelet pan.
Brush a bit of oil over the pan.
Pour batter in the pan, enough to coat the pan in a thin layer.
Cook for about 20 seconds and then flip the crepe and cook about 10-15 seconds more or until firm.
Put crepe and repeat process until batter is used up (about 4-6 crepes depending on the size of the pan)


Filling:
1 Tbsp butter
a couple of rotting bananas, sliced into circles
Nutella or Peanut Butter

In another pan melt the butter and add the bananas.
Cook on a medium heat until bananas are pleasantly caramelized. 

Spread Nutella or peanut butter on a crepe and put filling over it.  Fold over or roll crepe up.

Cost of this meal (enough to feed 4) - maybe $2.00 - $3.00 worth of ingredients, and yet you are eating like a king!
