Cook 30 to 45 seconds until surface looks dry. Carefully lift the corner to flip – cook a few seconds more. Remove to plate, spoon on a line of ricotta, diced tomato or pasta sauce and season with salt & pepper – roll and enjoy! Tastes like lasagna… mmmmm. Don’t be intimidated by the crepe making, it’s just an egg.
