Crepe Recipe Ingredients

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Dear Friends:

My friend, (a fellow chef), and I were discussing crepe ingredients the other day.

I discovered that we use the exact same recipe with one exception:

In his recipe he uses whole eggs while I use only egg yolks.

I was wondering what you guys thought about whole eggs vs. egg yolks. What are the pros & cons? Is one better than the other or is there no big difference?

The recipe using all yolks would yield a more delicate crepe because of the omission of whites.

...and the one with the whole eggs would be more flexible, and less rich.

the one with the yolks is more yellow too....

Now fill a crepe with chiboust and bake/broil, a slice of heaven...........
