These crêpes would also taste great with savory fillings such as sautéed mushrooms, creamed spinach, or scrambled eggs.

3 large eggs
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup whole milk
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup plus 1½ Tbs. plain 2% Greek yogurt, divided

chixpe crepes w maple/rspberry sauce

Don't do it! Crepes are a science developed over hundreds of years. This is a complete failure... and I'm still hungry for breakfast. Raspberry syrup is good, obviously.

How can this be vegetarian when recipe mentions about adding eggs.
