Makes 2 servings (2 crepes per serving)


3/4 cup – milk
1 – large egg
1 – egg white
1 1/2 teaspoons – neutral flavored cooking oil (such as canola, avocado, grapeseed)
1 teaspoon – sugar
1/2 cup – all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons – whipped cream cheese, room temperature
2 teaspoons – chives, minced
4 ounces – smoked salmon
Capers for garnish (optional)
Pair each serving with:
8-ounce glass of milk


Mix together 3/4 cup milk, eggs, oil and sugar. Using a fine mesh strainer or sifter, sift one-quarter of  flour into egg mixture, stir and repeat until all flour has been incorporated into batter.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour a generous 1/4 cup batter into the center of the skillet and rotate pan to spread batter. When the top of the crêpe is set (about 2 minutes), flip and lightly brown the other side, cooking for an additional 2 minutes or so.  Flip crêpes onto a paper towel and set aside.

Mix together room-temperature cream cheese and chives in small bowl. Gently spread about 1 tablespoon of the mixture over half of each crêpe. Add 1-ounce smoked salmon to each crêpe and sprinkle with a 5-6 capers if desired. Fold crêpes in half and again into triangles. Serve with remaining 8-ounce glass of milk.
