Breakfast Crepes

This has been a lounging weekend for me. The boyfriend and I finally celebrated Valentine's Day with dinner at Capri Italian Restaurant followed by my favorite desert at Baskin Robbins {brownie sundae}. Saturday I made French toast for a few of us, which reminded me I need to cook it more often. I forget french toast, maple syrup, and fresh berries makes for an amazing, deliciously sweet breakfast. Of course, massive amounts of bacon accompanied the french toast. The rest of the weekend has been devoted to catching up on shows and watching movies, while taking frequent naps in between. Overall, this weekend was exactly what I needed.

This morning I felt well rested and decided to make a recipe that's been on my "Food Porn" Pinterest board for a while. I saw this crepe recipe on Martha Stewart's website and thought it looked like such an elegant breakfast dish. I've only made crepes one time before and they turned out great {I used this crepe recipe}. If you make them the night before, these breakfast crepes are a breeze to put together. I built upon the original recipe and added a thin layer of veggie cream cheese to my crepes along with paprika, salt, pepper, and goat cheese. Once they were crispy and ready to eat, I topped them with green onions {the original recipe calls for chives}. They're definitely fancy shmancy for a Sunday morning.
