Classic crepes get a savory makeover when they’re filled with scrambled eggs and covered in an amazing avocado pico de gallo! — The ultimate Cinco de Mayo breakfast!
So I have this thing, guys. This thing that I’m completely 10000% obsessed with and it’s called crepes SAVORY-style.
Or to be more accurate…trashed-up BRUNCH style which of course, means there’s eggs and in this particular case…avocado pico de gallo piled into every.spare.inch….Hold me.
Okay, guys. Here’s the deal about these crepes.
The thing is…most Saturday mornings I’m craving something sweet and glaze-covered for breakfast, but a few weeks ago I just REALLY wanted a big ‘ol weekend egg breakfast.
But at the same I had already promised the kiddos I’d make them SWEET-style crepes…
What’s a girl to do? Make the kiddos their sweet berry crepes…and only then fill MINE with Savory Breakfast 101. Which includes scrambled eggs, obviously. And pico de gallo on top because it’s the best and also, eek! Cinco de Mayo is next week!
Also. This pico de gallo is kinda like chunky guacamole is on a date with fresh tomato salsa. It’s quite literally THE BOMB, GUYS!
It’s also like officially the best date ever when you throw a few crepes and fluffy scrambled eggs into the party.
These crepes kinda remind me of breakfast tacos which we all KNOW is the best invention known to man, but at the same time they’re different, because there is absolutely NO beating a warm homemade lacey crepe.
And quite honestly, guys? There’s no beating a breakfast like this. Just surrender yourself to the fact that you neeeeeeeeeed it.
Raise your hand if you’ve just decided how your Cinco de Mayo breakfast/brunch/breakfast-for-dinner/midnight snack should look.
I’m hoping that involves savory crepes with extra pico, in which case I may or may not be showing up at your door next Thursday.
And that’s not creepy at all.
