Honey Cinnamon Paneer & Pear Crepes for Meatless Monday

I think that I’ve mentioned that I LOVE eating breakfast for dinner. And for breakfast. And lunch. Maybe even for snacks, too. Screw it. I could eat breakfast all day long, every single day. 
Honey Cinnamon Paneer & Pear Crepes for Meatless Monday

I decided last week that crepes were going to feature on our Meatless Monday dinner recipe, but I also needed to work in some protein. I wanted to do a ‘sweet’ (but not much extra sugar, like syrup or brown sugar toppings) pancake, and I still had some Paneer in the fridge from my initial foray into the new-to-me cooking cheese, so I got to thinking… And what I came up with was not only terribly delicious, but also incredibly easy. Honey Cinnamon Paneer Crepes for Meatless Monday. What better way to start out a new week?

The most work-intensive part of this meal, as with most crepe meals, is making the crepes themselves. My sister posted this easiest crepe recipe ever  a while back that she picked up while she was living in Paris – seriously – 3 ingredients, 1:1:1. Easy to double, triple, or cut in half! I usually double the recipe, because I loooove having leftover crepes in the fridge for breakfast the next morning. :)

Note: These pancakes are sweet enough that you can avoid adding syrup – though I wouldn’t blame you if you added just a touch of real, fresh Maple Syrup!

I respect people who respect others. I love good food that's well done, but my favourite lunch is KD & hotdogs. With ketchup. I'm addicted to Clearance Shopping. I will ALWAYS get the product that I want at the price that I want, eventually.
