Directions:
Directions:
1) beat eggs and gradually stir in flour, important not to dump all at once as it will get lumpy
2) mix in butter and salt
3) gradually add milk and water, again gradual is important here as it will get clumpy if not
4) heat a large round skillet or a griddle with oil
5) pour approximately 1/4 cup batter into the pan, moving to evenly coat
6) cook crepe until it starts to look done on the edges, about 2 minutes, flip and cook on other side 2 minutes, crepes should be golden brown in color
7) may be served hot or cool per preference, i like to fill half of the circle with topping and then fold into a quarter while others prefer them rolled

Personal Notes:
While this isn't exactly a quick breakfast, the batter may be prepared the night before which can make it go a little quicker. These are one of those breakfast dishes that can be done savory or sweet depending on what you're feeling. I find these to be delicious. One thing that is important for this recipe (aside from the gradual addition of almost all ingredients) is that you are using a high quality pan that doesn't stick. If it sticks your crepes will tear and be sad crepes, and who wants that? Although if you do run into a teat you can always fill it in with some batter to "mend" it.

Toppings that me and my siblings like include peanut butter and berries, or coconut cream and fruit. Jason likes cream cheese and berries or nutella banana, while my mother likes yogurt, granola, and berries. I also like the savory one, like spinach and feta or kale, humus and cheddar.
