Spinach Artichoke & Bacon Savoury Crepe with Hollandaise Sauce

Spinach Artichoke & Bacon Savoury Crepes - What's for Dinner? Adapt for #MeatlessMonday by removing bacon

I love, love, LOVE breakfast. I could eat breakfast for every meal of the day. I really enjoy going out for breakfast (a very rare occurrence, now that we’ve got kids!), but I always have such a hard time figuring out what to order because I want to eat it ALL! The Hungry Man Breakfast with sausages, bacon, eggs, and pancakes? Yes, please! Stuffed French Toast? Happily! Crepes with bananas and Nutella? Um, yeah!!
Problem being, Brian doesn’t like sweet stuff for supper, and he already eats 2 eggs for breakfast every day – so I don’t get to make breakfast for dinner very often.

Easiest Crepe Recipe Ever - Make Savoury Crepes for Supper!
A Near-Perfect Crepe Pour

Last week, however, I had bacon on the counter, artichoke hearts in the cupboard, spinach in the freezer, and no desire to make or eat casseroles. Cue the Savoury Crepe Pankcake Dinner!

Easiest Crepe Recipe Ever
A Much More Typical (for me!) Crepe Pour

I used Marya’s crepe recipe that she picked up in France, but tripled it (which worked out well for two VERY hungry adults and two moderately hungry little ones – leaving a few for dessert pancakes at the end of supper and a few for me for breakfast for the morning!). I chilled the pancake batter for an hour or two, and then started making the pancakes well before supper time – it takes a while to make them all – you can store them (covered) in a warm oven until supper is ready to be served. I made the filling ahead of time as well, and just reheated close to dinner time. (Because we all know that there’s nothing we’d like to be doing less in that hour leading up to dinner – otherwise known as The Witching Hour.) Then, in about the five minutes before dinner, I made the Hollandaise Sauce in the KitchenAid (way easier than doing on the stovetop!)

Spinach, Artichoke, & Bacon Filling for Savoury Crepes
Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp oil or bacon drippings
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced (a mandolin will dice it for you in less than a minute!)
  • 1 box (~283g) of chopped or whole leaf frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 can (~400g) of quartered artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 1/2 package of bacon, cooked (have you ever tried cooking bacon in the oven?)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Heat oil/bacon drippings over medium heat in frying pan. Add onions, and reduce heat. Cook, stirring infrequently, for ~10 minutes (so the onions are almost caramelized)
  2. Add spinach. Cook for several minutes until the remaining moisture in spinach has evaporated.
  3. Add artichoke hearts and bacon and mix thoroughly. Cook for 5 minutes on low.
  4. Salt/pepper to taste.

I live in Hamilton, Ontario, and love my city. I'm a Netflixer, choral music geek, bookworm, inventor of recipes (I take Artistic Licence on EVERYTHING that I make), wife of one, mother of two, and owner of a neurotic Schnauzer. 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.
