French savory spinach Crêpes

Hellooo!  Today, I’m talking about a recipe inspired by my French culture and it’s awesome!  What’s so great about that recipe?  So many things!
– Kids and adults love it.
– Meat lovers and vegetarian eat it.
– You get to eat your green.
– It’s perfect for dinner and makes a great lunch for school or work.

 Saying it’s inspired by my French culture is not totally right nor fair… to my son!  My little superhero loves to watch Popeye and  asks me regularly to buy spinach at the grocery store. I know, I am a super lucky mom as not all the kids asks for spinach, broccoli and green beans at the store.

Thanks to the episodes of Popeye on Youtube, we made spinach version of lasagna or transformed quiches into spinach tarts.
Our little princess loves it too and as for hubby, it’s kind of hidden so it works out.  You know how he is…  (Love you mon chéri!)

 When we do crêpes at home, I love the atmosphere, it’s relax and we each choose what we want in our crêpe.  I used to have dinner like this with my Dad when I used to live with him in France, it was our French version of breakfast for dinner.

As a Mom, it’s a privilege to pass along some evening’s tradition and make my souvenirs their souvenirs.

Those crêpes are the Popeyes crêpes like my son calls it, it brings color to your plate and stimulate your originality.  What do you want in it?  Veggies?  Ham?  Cheese?  And egg?  At home, we go simple with ham and cheddar cheese, fresh ground pepper and salt.

Something we love to do is the split the recipe in 2, save some spinach-free batter to make some sweet crêpes for dessert.   Chocolate crêpes anyone?  Or would you go for the traditional French melted butter, sprinkle with sugar and a zest of lemon.

    Delicious if you ask me. I sometimes have issues when I buy too much spinach, this seems like a great idea to use them before the go bad.
