We stayed there over Canada Day yet again. I can't say enough good things. The room was fantastic, the Inn is very close to Parliament Hill and the Market, and the food was great. - Doug Cambell, Montreal

Crepes at McGee’s Inn

March 16, 2014 - Recipes

CREPES AT McGEE'S INN

(This recipe was featured in the Ottawa Magazine March/April issue 2009)

Crepes are a staple on the breakfast menu at McGee's Inn.  We have tried different recipes and this is our favourite - tried and true.

*  1 C milk

*  pinch of salt

*  2 Tbsp melted butter

*  3 Eggs

*1 Tsp vanilla

* 1 C flour

* 1 Tbsp sugar

We put everything into a food processor and blend for a couple of minutes, stopping and stirring to incorporate all the flour.

It is best to make the batter the day before or let sit overnight.

 

 

CHICKEN AND BROCOLLI CREPES

I use the same recipe as above but omit the vanilla and sugar.

Put cooked chicken and cooked brocolli onto the crepes. Add a little cheese sauce. Then roll up the crepes tightly.

Place in a non-stick oven proof dish and cover. Place in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until heated through.

Remove - put a little more cheese sauce over the top of the crepes and place under a broiler for 1 minute or until browned.

We have used this recipe at McGee's Inn for luncheons or business meetings.

Lightly grease and heat non-stick, flat-bottom skillet over medium heat. Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into pan. Quickly tilt pan to spread batter over hot surface. Cook until lightly brown on both sides.
Stack crepes between layers of parchment paper. (To prepare in advance, wrap with foil and refrigerate.)
