Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Egg Crepes


The problem with being addicted to Food Network is that it makes me want to eat all kinds of things I can’t have (because it’s midnight and I don’t have deep fried bacon in the house), and definitely should not have (seriously…don’t let me eat fried bacon). Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives is the worst. Every time I see Guy chomping into something greasy, gooey, porky, or crackly (i.e., every other scene), my mouth starts watering and I immediately become consumed with the urge to eat everything. Cuz, you know…if I can’t have the fried chicken biscuit Guy is shoveling into his mouth, I’m just gonna munch on everything in my pantry/fridge until I convince my tastebuds/stomach/brain that I am eating fried chicken biscuits. Self delusion – it’s a real problem.


Last weekend, DDD did some kind of breakfast tour. Every episode was packed with cheesy omelettes, syrupy waffle concoctions, and mile-high pancake stacks. Two episodes in, and I was dying. The sight of one diner chomping into a soft, gooey salmon & cream cheese omelette/crepe thing was the last straw. I had eggs, I had smoked salmon, I had cream cheese, and damned if I wasn’t going to make myself a DDD breakfast. Great decision. Possibly one of my top 10 best decisions ever. I’m just going to throw it out there that you haven’t lived until you’ve had a fluffy, egg-y crepe wrapped around melt-y, tangy cheese and salty smoked salmon. Try it. Please.
