If crepes are not part of your regular breakfast and brunch rotation, they should be. These incredibly thin pancakes are the perfect vehicle for all kinds of amazing toppings – sweet or savory!

I’ve gathered up some of the most interesting ideas in crepe fillings for you to taste and get inspired by. I am sure you will find your new favorite combo and be converted to loving crepes just as much as me. They are such a fabulous way to dress up your breakfast or snack time – or any time really.

Make it a brunch buffet

One of the best parts about crepes is how each person can customize their own. Since it is all about the fillings, you can cater to all sorts of dietary preferences. Just lay out a variety of fillings and everyone can dress up their crepes to their own desires.

The crepes themselves can be made from all kinds of flours. I like using partially whole wheat or even oat flour since they are rich in nutrients, but you’ll find lot of ideas from these other recipes. And once you have your base, it’s time to get creative.

It’s especially amazing to incorporate fresh, seasonal produce into your crepes. Whether you are going for a sweet spread with lots of fresh fruit, or more savory choices with cheese and vegetables, pick up some of whatever is available at the farmer’s market.

Stick with the classics like cheese and mushrooms, or get creative with some of these great ideas. Either way, you are sure to have a winning spread that everyone will want to copy. Don’t forget to check out my Mango and Ricotta Crepes post for ideas on preparing the pancakes ahead of time to make everything easier.
