Directions for: Crepes with Pommes Caramilisees


Caramel Sauce

½ lb(s) butter

½ cup water

½ cup 35% cream

2 cup brown sugar

8 small apples, sliced


1 tsp butter, melted (or substitute with 1 teaspoon oil)

1 lb(s) (16 slices) bacon


1 Tbsp vanilla

5 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp salt

4 ½ cup flour

3 eggs

1 quart (4 1/2 cups) buttermilk

¼ cup butter, melted

1 tsp oil


2 cup cheddar, grated


Caramel Sauce

1. In a pot or saucepan combine butter, water, cream, and sugar; form a caramel sauce by bringing to a boil over high heat. Allow to until thick.

2. Once the caramel has thickened add the sliced apples. Allow the apples to soften in boiling caramel for 2-4 minutes.

3. Reduce heat to low and allow caramel sauce to simmer until you are ready for assembly.


1. Add butter to a frying pan; melt over medium heat. Once butter sizzles, add bacon to pan. Cook to desired crispness; turn bacon over periodically to prevent burning.

2. Remove from heat and set aside.


1. In a large bowl sift dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients and mix well to form pancake batter.

2. Add oil to a large frying pan or griddle. Warm oil over medium heat.

3. With a 2-ounce ladle scoop batter into pan. Each scoop makes 1 pancake. Cook 2-4 pancakes at a time; flipping after 2-3 minutes when batter begins to bubble. When both sides of the pancake are golden brown, remove from heat.

4. Set 1 serving of 4-5 pancakes at a time aside on oven safe plates or cooking tray. Repeat for remainder of batter.


1. Preheat oven to low broil.

2. Sprinkle ½ cup of cheese on each serving of 4-5 pancakes. Place in oven for 2-4 minutes until cheese has melted.

3. Remove from oven and plate with 4 pieces of bacon. Top with a generous serving of caramel sauce. Serve.
