Sundae Crêpes: Bell Pepper Brie

Since our visit to a French crêperie last year, Brie has fast become my favorite cheese. Brie has such a delicate quality, and when warm, such rich texture. It's versatility is vast; paired well in both sweet and savory dishes and delicious when complimented with simple crackers and avocado.

Bell Pepper Brie Crêpes with Garlic Hollandaise Sauce
Garlic Hollandaise
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon water
Pinch of salt
Whisk together until frothy

Place mixture in a double boiler, or in a metal pan fitted over a saucepan with 1" simmering water
Stirring consistently, cook until mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon

1 clove of garlic, finely minced
4 tablespoons butter
Whisk until butter has melted

Return mixture to heat, reduce to low, to warm
Serve immediately

3 eggs
1 ¼ cup milk

(Omit the sugar when making savory crêpes)
3/4 cup flour
Dash of salt
Whisk together until smooth

Why are you not at my house cooking for me? If only I were independently wealthy. *sigh*
