Ingredients

  • 4 Ounces Bacon
  • 1 cup Wondra (instant) flour
  • 1.5 cups Water
  • 2 TB Butter
  • 2 Yellow Onions thinly sliced into half-moons
  • 1/3 cups creme fraiche (creme fraiche is heavy cream slightly soured with bacterial culture, but not as sour or as thick as sour cream.)
  • 1 TB chives chopped

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Whisk together the flour and water to make a simple crepe batter. Over medium heat, in a crepe (or non-stick) pan, spread a very thin layer of butter. Drop 1/3 cups of batter into the pan, swirl around until there is a very thin layer of batter evenly distributed. Cook 3-4 minutes until the edges curl up and get brown. Do not flip the crepe; you only want to cook 1 side. Watch as your crepe under-cooks or overcooks, and adjust your heat accordingly. Don't worry, it takes a while to get this right, you may have to throw away a couple. Slide the finished crepes cooked-side down onto greased cookie sheets and reserve.

Toss your bacon in the freezer for 10 minutes to make it easier to cut. When firm, cut into 1/4 inch strips Over a medium heat, render the fat from the bacon until the bacon is medium-crispy and reserve the bacon itself.
