Crepes are one of those wonderfully impressive dishes that are actually incredibly easy and inexpensive to make. The egg-cheese-onion version is my favorite simple combination but feel free to get creative and add anything from bacon to feta to avocado.


  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten $1.50
  • 1/2 cup milk $1
  • 2 tbsp melted butter, divided $1 for a stick
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder Pantry
  • 1/2 cup flour Pantry
  • 1/2 tsp salt Pantry
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese $2 
  • 1/2 white onion, diced $0.50
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil Pantry

Recipe Serves 2


  1. Whisk together 1 egg, the milk, 1 tbsp of the butter, the baking powder, salt and the flour until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Cook the onions for 2-3 minutes or until lightly brown. Add the remaining eggs and cook until scrambled (hint: stir frequently and cook over medium heat as opposed to high heat for light fluffy eggs). Remove from heat.
  3. Heat the remaining butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Spoon half of the batter into the center of the hot frying pan and move around until it is spread over the entire pan. Cook for 1.5-2 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Using 2 spatulas, flip over and cook the other side. Remove and transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter to make a second crepe.
  4. To assemble the crepes, sprinkle half of the cheese on each crepe. Divide the egg/onion mixture between the two crepes and fold in half or into quarters.
