Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: German
Serves: 4 - 6 people
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup potato starch or cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup club sparkling water or club soda
  • 1 piece of bacon
  • 2 quarts homemade chicken stock or good quality chicken stock
  • 1 bunch chives, chopped
  1. Sift the flour, starch, and salt into a medium-size bowl. Beat the egg with the sparkling water and then add the mixture to the bowl of dry goods. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Heat a crepe pan or saute pan over medium heat. Rub the inside with a slice of bacon.
  3. Pour ⅓ cup of batter into the hot pan and tilt the pan to evenly cover. Flip the crepe once bubbles form on the top and edges begin to pull away slightly - about 30 seconds on the first side, 10 seconds on the second.
  4. Rub the pan with bacon in between each completed crepe. Roll up each crepe as they are finished. Once cooled, slice into ¼ rounds.
  5. Heat the chicken stock and season with salt and pepper (if needed) to taste. Ladle the stock into bowls and add the rolled crepes. Garnish liberally with chives and serve immediately. Enjoy!
