Sundae Crêpes: Avocado Corn

We are still in enveloped in full LOST mania over here in the Olson household; just 14 episodes to go! I've been thinking, dreaming, obsessing and philosophizing about LOST non-stop for the past month.


We just began Season 5 today. My latest theory is the belief that someone built the Island. It potentially answers why the Island is not fixed in time?, and why the Donkey Wheel is embedded in the core of the island?, among other questions.

2 more days until the finalè! To get us through the last episodes we needed a hearty breakfast.
Avocado Corn Crêpes with Onion Reduction Sauce

1 ripe avocado, cubed
1 can corn, or 10-14oz. of shucked corn (1-2 ears), drained
2-4oz. sprouts
3oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded

Onion Reduction Sauce
1 quarter of whole yellow, or white onion
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Salt & pepper to taste
Puree in blender until smooth
Transfer to a saucepan over low heat

Add
1 tablespoon heavy cream
Cook until mixture thickens

Crêpes
3 eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
Whisk milk and eggs until frothy

Add
1 Tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup flour
Dash of salt
Whisk together until smooth
Allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes

In a well buttered crêpe or round pan, pour a few tablespoons of mixture over med heat
Spread thin
Allow to cook for a few minutes,
Flip over, repeat on opposite side
Remove crêpe and add a dab of butter, allow to melt

Finalè:
Fill with a spoonful of cubed avocado, and a spoonful of corn
1 pinch of sprouts
Top with shredded cheese
Fold over both ends
Top with onion reduction sauce, and a few additional sprouts

Recipe will yield about 6-8 crêpes
