French Canadian Breakfast Crepes
My family's version of Crepes that we have for breakfast. Thicker than regular crepes, thinner than pancakes, and a crispy lacey edge unlike both. Serve with maple syrup for a yummy breakfast treat!

In a large mixing bowl combine flour and salt. Whisk in eggs and milk just until thin batter forms.
Place about 2 tablespoons of shortening in large skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium heat. When shortening is hot, pour some batter into middle of pan then swirl pan around so that a large crepe forms.
Cook crepes about 1-2 minutes per side or when crepe starts to get crispy around edges and bubbles. Continue until all batter has been used. Serve with maple syrup.
SNAPPY TIPS: Make sure your pan is hot before pouring in the batter so that the batter can almost “fry” in the shortening.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: We typically serve this with warm maple syrup but you could serve with a fruit sauce, powdered sugar, honey, etc.
