"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
Crepe Batter:
1/3 cup chickpea flour
1/3 cup 1 percent milk
1 tablespoon plus 1½ teaspoons warm water
1 large egg
1 tablespoon plus 1½ teaspoons canola oil
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Crepes:
2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
4 (1-ounce) slices low-fat, low-sodium boiled or smoked ham (not honey glazed)
4 (3/4-ounce) slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
Directions:
For the crepe batter:
Purée flour, milk, water, egg, oil, salt, and pepper in a blender until smooth, about 1 minute. Set aside to rest for 15 minutes.
For the crepes:
Heat 1 tsp oil in an 8” nonstick skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Add 2 tbs of the batter, tilting the pan so that batter forms a thin layer. Cook until edges begin to brown, about 1 minute. Carefully flip the crepe over and cook until golden on the bottom, about 1 more min. Transfer crepe, golden-side down, to a plate. Without adding any additional oil, repeat with remaining batter, stacking crepes, to make all 4 crepes. Lay each crepe, golden-side down, on a serving plate. Top each with 1 ham slice and 1 cheese slice.

Season eggs with salt and pepper. Heat remaining oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggs and stir occasionally until set, about 2 minutes. Divide eggs among prepared crepes, roll up, and serve.

Personal Notes:
This hearty egg creation is a delicious way to start your day! Best of all, it will keep you satisfied all morning long.

If a wheat or gluten allergy won't usually allow you to enjoy crepes, then this delicious breakfast dish is for you! Chickpea flour — a nonwheat, gluten-free flour made from ground dried chickpeas — creates filling, protein- and iron-rich crepes that are just as tasty as they are nutritious. Look for the flour in your health food store. If you have some fresh herbs on hand, add a chopped tablespoon or two just before rolling up the crepes.
