It also makes a great crepe for your favorite vegetarian fillings such as mushrooms and asparagus.

Customize this crepe batter recipe by adding your favorite herbs or even cheddar cheese! 


  • ¾ cup of all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup of cooked, mashed potatoes
  • 1 tbsp of melted butter
  • 1¼ cups of skim milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of fresh or dried chives or herbs of your choice, optional
  • ½ cup of grated cheddar cheese, optional

Yield: 8 8-inch or 10 6-inch crepes

Combine all ingredients into a blender and mix until well-blended. You may also combine them by hand. If combining by hand, mix the eggs, potatoes, and milk separately and combine slowly with the dry ingredients. Mix in the melted butter and optional herbs last. Important: Refrigerate the batter for at least 30 minutes. This gives the batter the opportunity to rest and fully come together. 

If adding cheese: Follow the steps in the link below to make your crepes with the following extra step. After cooking the first side of the crepe, flip it, and sprinkle the cooked side with 1 tablespoon of cheddar cheese. When the cheese melts, the crepe is done! Repeat with remaining crepes.
