Crepe Stuffed with Spinach, and Mushrooms on a Plain White Plate

From breakfast and brunch to dinner and dessert, crepes can be customized for any meal of the day, all by simply swapping out sweet and savory fillings. Start with an all-purpose batter, like Alton Brown’s tried-and-true recipe, then experiment with your favorite ingredient pairings in the stuffing to ultimately create all-new takes on traditional meals.

Read on below for Food Network’s top-five crepe recipes for satisfying ideas from Giada De Laurentiis, Marcela Valladolid and more of your favorite chefs.

Crepes

It takes just a handful of everyday ingredients to make Alton’s top-rated crepes, but the key to this recipe lies in the process. Once the eggs, milk, flour and water are blended together, let the mixture chill for an hour, then cook it quickly: just 30 seconds over the heat on one side and another 10 seconds on the other.
