Crepes with Chicken, Avocado and Bacon

My turn to once again choose for Martha Mondays, my pick was crepes! but I am just posting it now! Almost a week late. I did  make them on Monday, but couldn't get a good photo after dark, so I saved some and had them the next day too. My computer is so slow and old I am getting a new one. In the meanwhile I have to use my husbands on the weekends or evenings. I feel so neglectful to you all...
I'll be back in full swing soon, and back to my regular visits and posts.

We had FCAT testing the last two weeks and everyone is on edge...teacher, students, and parents. In the clinic we get the kids come in when the test is done because they came to school sick just for the test. We try to encourage them do satay home and do the make up test. You can almost hear the sigh of relief from everyone. Now we are working on field trips, and school end stuff, getting ready for next year.
Now back to the crepes my choice this week was made because this was another things I have always wanted to make and really have no idea why I haven't. I like to order savory crepes when we go to a favorite breakfast place in town...turkey dill. Since I don't have that recipe for their sauce, it reminded me of a hollandaise with dill...anyway, I decided to make up my own to go with chicken, bacon, avocado and tomatoes. I also added some green onions to a couple of them for the savory breakfast crepe.
I made a creamy dill with yogurt and a chipotle mayo sauce. The crepe recipe was easy to follow and I first tried making them on my 13" round griddle that I use to make dosa on and it's good for quesadillas. It did not work that well for the crepes because it needed the edge of the pan to create the round edge of the crepe, so I pulled out my 9.5" green pan and that one worked out great. Just lightly buttered the pan and it didn't stick at all.
For the Chipotle Sauce: 1/2 cup Greek Style yogurt, 2 tablespoons mayo, 2 teaspoons chopped chipotle in adobo sauce or chipotle powder.
 
Yogurt Dill Sauce: 1/2 cup Greek style yogurt 2 tablespoons fresh dill (chopped) or 1 teaspoon dried dill 2-4 tablespoons milk 1 teaspoon key lime juice pinch of garlic powder salt and pepper to taste.
I used the sauce on the inside and out.
I now know how to make crepes and found out how well the keep in the fridge for a couple of days. I will see how well they freeze. Next I'm making dessert crepes, with Nutella, strawberries and bananas!
We have been having picture perfect weather over the last few weeks, cool nights,  sunny days right around 80 degrees, we really couldn't  ask for better weather. But we really need the rain, we often get 30 or 40 percent chance and it never rains at our house, maybe just a sprinkle. Of course when I water my plants it rains, and on Saturday it rained when we were shopping downtown Venice, FL. :D

When we got home we had a couple of Mallard ducks at the bird feeder, then they were hanging out by a little puddle in the middle of the driveway. It must be dry at their house too.

Now I have to get ready for this weeks Martha Monday!

  3. Your savory crepes looks delicious with the creamy sauce, the dessert crepes sounds even better:D It's been a while since I last get rain at where I lived, I guess the dry season is upon us! Just last month, my back portion of the house was partly submerged in water!

  10. Yum for crepes! I haven't made any in ages. I tend toward the sweet crepes but had a delish bite of a ham & cheese one my hubby got once. I'll have to give savory another go. Yours look great.

    And, it's raining here right now! Well, if you can really call it rain. Our rain is more of a sprinkle usually but we need it to keep the glacial silt/dust down now that the snow is gone. :)

  11. I'm always a big fan of savory crepes. Yours looks very yummy being all well-packed with all wholesome fillings.

    Sunny days plus cool nights...I'm envious of FL weather. At Melbourne, Australia, we are getting winter chills really soon.

  12. Hi Lyndsey...your crepes look perfectly thin and delicious with the stuffing. I absolutely love avocado & I'll definitely stuff more of it in this crepe. The weather here has been crazy. It's either terribly hot & humid or it'll rain non stop. The past week I was away thus did not manage to write earlier about how sad I felt when I read your note about Tucker. It was unexpected as I didn't expect him to be so old. He was just adorable and I'm glad he had a good life largely because he had wonderful & kind owners. Sometimes I still think about my childhood dog, Ringo. He was named after Ringo Starr of the Beatles :). How cute right? Currently there is a stray that has been coming to my front gate whenever he needs a meal. So pitiful.

  13. Yum! You had me at avocados and bacon-I haven't tried making crepes for years, so I'll have to give it a try again so I can have these, along with that wonderful sounding sauce.

  14. Hi Lyndsey-I've been having the same problem with photos here, in our south part of Florida. Since last week, rain, rain, and more again, all week long! Much needed rain though!
    It was well worth to wait to get the photo of your amazing crepes for the daytime, so thin, and light. The filling is awesome...never thought about filling it with bacon...but why not?...anything savory goes!
    Love the yummy crepes, your photos, and the cute rainy one from outside:DDD

  20. These look amazing and I have all of the ingredients (including a dusty crepe maker that needs to come out of retirement) to make them.

  21. I like savory food including savory crepes.

    Today I made "crepes" too but using eggs (and nothing else) as the batter.

  22. These savory crepes are so incredibly tempting! I could go for a couple right now. That has to be one of my favorite combinations of ingredients (chix, bacon, avocado). Sigh...

  23. This is super nice! I don't have too many savory recipes for crepe, so I appreciate you shares this one. I need to make yogurt dill sauce and make your chicken avocado bacon crepe. Sounds awesome. Then I can eat one huge sweet crepe... =)
