THE RECIPE

Grilled Cheese Crepes with Shaved Asparagus

A grilled cheese that takes the crepe

There are tons of ways to adapt the classic grilled cheese sandwich, but we think this variation takes the cake, or crepe if you will. A crepe is a type of very thin pancake of French origin, often served folded into a triangle shaped or rolled up with either sweet or savory fillings. They are simple and convenient to make, and leftover crepes can be saved and reheated in a pinch! Tourists in France flock to the chocolate-filled sweet crepes, but we’re suckers for good savory, cheese-filled crepes such as these! Asparagus is one of those perfect spring vegetables that sprouts up just as the season changes to symbolize the end of winter. Paired with cheese, the earthy vegetable shines in these crepes that are light, tasty and perfect for a picnic on the porch as the weather warms up!
