we like breakfast

I seem to post a lot of breakfast dishes on here. It’s because we absolutely love breakfast in this apartment, it is the most important meal of the day for us!

Usually OH is the breakfast maker but this time around it was all me. You see OH works every second weekend and sometimes pulls a double or two. He usually is too tired to make much more than coffee and oatmeal. Not knocking oatmeal, it has it’s place, but I wanted to make a breakfast that could be reheated and eaten so that OH would feel better working said double.

Here is what you need;

  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 breakfast sausages
  • 1/4 sweet onion
  • 1 cup grated cheese – I used marble
  • 1 cup all purpose flour – I used unbleached
  • 2 tbsp soda water – I used Perrier
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • A pinch of salt – I used sea salt
  • 1 tbsp of parsley flakes
  • 1/2 tbsp of milk

raw ingredients

Cut up the sausage and put it in a pan that’s been heating up on med. Brown the sausage. Cut up sweet onion and add to pan.

While that is simmering and the onions are caramelizing, crack the eggs into a bowl. I added half an egg shell of water and beat the eggs.


Add the eggs to the pan and scramble them with the sausage and onions. Add a bit of the cheese while scrambling.


Once that is done, put the pan on low. Add the rest of the cheese to melt on top.

The next part is the crêpes. Preheat a small nonstick pan (low-med heat). Combine in a bowl the flour, baking powder, salt and parsley. Add in milk and soda water – mix until smooth (it should have the consistency of milk).


Better consistency than this!

Butter the pan and add the batter. This is where I raise the heat a little bit to get the crêpe nice and formed.


I folded the one side while flipping it…

When the crêpes are done (I made 2), serve with eggs and sausage on top immediately or in my case, put into containers for future enjoyment.


A simple and hearty breakfast that doesn’t cost a lot and can impress!

    Mmm, tasty! Breakfast is also important in our household, though the Pie hasn’t mastered crepes yet. I should work on that … 🙂

      The trick to crêpes is really the heat control 🙂
