14 Gluten Free Basil Tomato Crepes for #SundaySupper

This week many of the contributors for Sunday Supper have taken off to party away at the Food & Wine Conference in Orlando, Florida. But as you can see, we didn't leave you hanging! This week we brough you recipes that are great for brinner (breakfast for dinner)! This week I made gluten free crepes! 
Someone recently asked me what the key is to making crepes, and I'll share with you what I told them; it's okay if it isn't perfect. The first two crepes I made for this batch did not turn out well, and for me it normally isn't until the third crepe that I actually make something that turns out well. 
For my gluten free batter, I like to use a blend of lighter flours that won't weigh down the batter and make it heavy, so avoid blends that are heavier in potato starches. Also, I don't add any gums to my crepe batter because I prefer the texture of crepes without the gums. 

Check out all the breakfast delights to satisfy your brinner wishes.

Gluten Free Basil Tomato Crepes

Serves 6 crepes
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cooking Time 20 minutes

1 tomato
8 leaves basil
3.5 oz feta
2 tbsp crumbled bacon

1 cup gluten free flour (no gums)
3 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
3 eggs
2 cups milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp melted butter, room temperature

Dice the tomato, and mince the basil. Combine the filling ingredients in a bowl and set aside. In a small bowl, mix the flour, sugar, and salt. Set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs for about 1 minute. Add the milk and vanilla and whisk for another minute to aerate the eggs. Whisk in the flour mix, followed by the butter mix.

Preheat a non-stick griddle pan (make sure it has edges) over medium heat. Depending on the size of pan, pour 3-4 tbsp of batter onto the pan. Spread the batter until an even coat is on the griddle pan. Wait for 2 minutes, or until air pockets form under the crepe. Use a spatula to separate the edge of the crepe from the pan, and carefully flip the crepe. I normally flip it onto a plate and then use spatulas to carefully flip and transfer back to the pan. Cook it for another 1-2 minutes and transfer to the plate. Fill with some of the filling, and serve!


  1. I love crepes for their savory appeal, and love how you you added tomato. Yummy!

  2. Oh...i betcha that bacon make this great looking dish that much better. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Well done! I love crepes in any form

  4. Perfect crepes!!! And a cheese, tomato and basil filling always rates high on my taste scale! Just marvelous.

    Tomato basil is a perfect combo. I bet these crepes are so tasty!

  6. It does! I love the texture and extra saltiness that it adds.

  7. Agreed, I almost have a greater love for savory crepes over sweet crepes.

  8. I've been too wussy to try making crepes, but these sound so fantastic!

  9. You should definitely try! They may not come out perfect the first few times, but that's ok! It normally takes me 2-3 tries before I start making crepes that I'm happy with.

  10. This is a perfect gluteen free crepe recipe! I love the taste it was awesome! it is really a must try recipe.

  11. Basil and tomatoes were made to be together. I almost always throw in basil when I'm making a tomato dish. And your crepes look wonderful, T.R.! I've only tried making them once at a cooking class a year ago. My crepes were a hot mess - every single one of them was torn. But they tasted good so that's all that matters, right?

  12. Yeah! And I hear you on hot mess, when I was making the batch for this recipe, my first one was a fail because the pan was too cold, the second I ripped it straight down the middle. There's definitely an art to making crepes!

  13. I'm glad to have a gluten free crepe to add to my repertoire...and your advice holds true for pretty much all cooking. It doesn't have to be perfect!

  14. Loving the filling for your crepes - they are perfect for summer!
