Turn Leftover Easter Ham & Candy Into Awesome Crepes

Categories: Cooking Virgin

Despite The Virgin's recent successes at making everything from aphrodisiac sandwiches to hot cross buns, I got off easy this Easter and didn't have to prepare a damn thing for the holiday meal. However, that didn't stop me and my sig other from heading home from dinner with a bag of leftover, half-eaten Easter candy and a chunk of honey ham conveniently deli-sliced by our hosts.

Normally, that stuff would've rotted in the fridge until it became a science experiment (hey look, my chocolate Easter Bunny from six months ago is growing real fur!). Instead, the Virgin took it upon herself to turn tomorrow's potential food trash into today's culinary treasure.

Read on for a step-by-step guide to making post-holiday ham & cheese crepes and a dessert version made with savory cheese and leftover Reese's peanut butter eggs!

The bodice-clad wenches at the Arizona Renaissance Festival's food booths make crepe-making look like a serious ancient art. But you don't need a fancy round flat plate grill or a batter dispersal tool that looks like a miniature Zen garden rake in order to make excellent crepes at home. It's a surprisingly simple process.

Combine 1 cup each flour and water in a small bowl. Add 2 eggs, a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of melted butter to the batter and whisk until smooth.
