Buckwheat Crepes Ham Swiss Cheese Asparagus:
What to do with Buckwheat Crepes?
My first thought was to use Buckwheat Crepes fresh berries filled crepes with whipped cream. Wow was that wonderful, but why not try Savory Crepes? This prompted me to go back to the classical egg, ham and cheese, crepes and change it up a little.
Spring is here, but it’s April 9th and we have 2+ inches of fresh snow on ground. It’s time to think Spring, and take the eggs out of the crepes and replace with some fresh Asparagus spears. Then poaching the Asparagus spears in white wine with lemon pepper for about 5 minutes. Now that’s feeling like being more spring like.
Wrapping Crepes with Ham Swiss cheese and asparagus filling.
Keeping it simple, is the key to making quick filled crepes. To do this heating a non-stick skillet with few sprays of canola oil, then lightly brown thin sliced ham. Next is to add some Swiss cheese and let it melt, followed by topping with some poached asparagus. This is quick easy and fast in about 3 minutes ready to roll the ham and cheese around the asparagus.
Place the rolled ham cheese and asparagus on top of Buckwheat Crepe and roll crepe. That was simple the Buckwheat Crepes Ham Swiss cheese Asparagus was born. But wait it needs a little something.
Aioli sauce yea is a perfect choice to compliment flavors. Aioli is garlic mayonnaise with little lemon zip. A light drizzle or dollop will be just right amount for crepes. Remember Aioli is mayonnaise with oil and vinegar emulsion with lots of garlic. Store bought short cut is to use 1 cup mayonnaise, three large cloves garlic minced and 2 tablespoon of fresh squeezed lemon juice, and dash Worcestershire sauce. Oh my it’s so Good with these crepes.
Take the filled rolled Buckwheat Crepes and cut them in half on diagonal. Arrange so one half Crepe rest on other standing up onto the other crepe. This gives height and able to see the fillings. Next drizzle small amount of Aioli Sauce over Crepes. Garnish with some Asparagus tips. Keeping it simple so it’s quick but still attractive too.
