BREAKFAST TIME :: FRENCH #1

Hey folks, it’s Friday and it means time for another breakfast inspiration. Last week I kicked off a new series “breakfast time” with some sweet, portuguese natas. The breakfast time series is all about jazzing up the most important meal of the day with some international ideas. Impress you darling, your BFF or as I did, my in-laws. 😉 Today we are having something french on the menu. Breton Galette; it’s a buckwheat crepe traditionally topped with some ham, cheese and egg. How I came up with this idea? It was the only breakfast Patrick and I had together in three weeks at a cute french place, Tati, while on vacation in Hamburg. Sad, isn’t it? Only one in three weeks, but it was so crazy delicious; it landed immediately on my to-cook-list. So here is my version of it… Bon Appetit!

Ingredients {makes 4-6}:

Crepe:
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
some vegetable oil to grease the pan

Toppings:
6 slices ham, chopped
some grated cheese
use one egg per crepe
some halved cocktail tomatoes
minced chives

Preparation:
– For the crepe: Mix the egg, salt and the milk together in a large bowl. Add gradually flour. Stir everything together until the mixture is well combined and smooth. The batter should be pretty liquid, if it’s too thick add some more milk.

– Preheat 2 oiled pans. Pour a full scoop of batter into one pan and tilt the pan so the mixture can spread evenly. Make an egg sunny side up in the other pan.

– Cook the galette for about 3-4 minutes. Turn in with the spatula, add the ham, cheese and tomatoes and cook it for another 4-5 minutes.

– Transfer the galette to a plate, add the egg sunny side up on top and sprinkle with some chives.

Note: The recipes I found on the internet suggested to break the egg already onto the galette and to cook it together. For me, this didn’t worked out because the egg took way too long to cook and the galette got burned on the bottom side. I assembled them after they were done separately. Much better.

Enjoy this french treat and I would love to hear your breakfast favorites.

Happy weekend!
