…Caramelized Onion Parmesan Crepe

This delicious recipe is easy to make, all you need is some time.  When sautéed over a low heat, the thinly sliced onions caramelize and develop a sweet savoury flavour that only requires simple additions to round out the flavour: sage, garlic and parmesan cheese.
Ingredients: (Yields approximately 4 crepes)

-1/2 cup of whole milk
-1 egg
-1 tbsp olive oil
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 cup flour

-2 thinly sliced onions
-3 cloves crushed garlic
-1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
-1 tsp dried sage


1. Whisk the egg and milk together.  Add the olive oil and salt.  

2.  Gradually and gently whisk in the flour until combined.  Do not over mix the batter.  Place it in the fridge for at least half an hour to chill.
3.  While the batter is chilling, make the filling.  Use a non-stick pan on medium-low heat and begin sautéing the onions in a tablespoon of whatever oil you have on hand, we used canola.  
4.  When the onions start to look soft and transparent, add the crushed garlic and sage.  Continue to sauté until the onions are a golden brown colour, about half and hour.  Be sure to constantly stir the onions so they colour evenly and don't burn.
5. Put the caramelized onions on a plate to cool.  At this point, the batter should be cooled enough to cook.  We used the same pan.
6. Add a teaspoon of oil into the pan and add a ladle-full (about 4 tablespoons) of batter into the pan and spread out using the back of the ladle or a spoon.  Cook until the underside is a golden colour and then flip over. 
7.  Add as much filling, including the cheese as you like.  When the other side of the crepe is golden in colour, fold over and toast for another minute to melt the cheese.  Cut the crepe into half and serve the while hot.
