Ingredients

WHIPPED RICOTTA FILLING

  • 2 ounces lightened cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper

EGG CREPES

  • 8 Eggland’s Best eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil more as needed

Instructions

  • First, prepare your whipped ricotta filling. To the bowl of your stand mixer (with whisk attachment fixed), combine the cream cheese, ricotta cheese, and whole milk. Beat on medium speed for about 3-4 minutes or until smooth and creamy. Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and gently fold in the honey, olive oil, lemon zest, sea salt and black pepper. Set aside.
  • Next, prepare your egg crepes. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Eggland’s Best eggs, milk, thyme, oregano, parsley, chives and a pinch of salt and black pepper until combined.
  • Heat the olive oil in a 10-12 inch nonstick omelet pan or skillet over medium heat. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the egg mixture from the bowl and pour it into the pan. Swirl the pan around so that the eggs form an even layer. The edges will cook before the middle does. As the edges set, tip the pan and swirl again. Once the eggs have set, about 1-2 minutes, remove immediately from the pan by sliding it gently onto a plate. This process will happen quickly, so pay close attention that you don’t overcook the eggs. Repeat with the remaining eggs to make 4 total egg crepes. Add more oil as needed.
  • Take 1/4 cup of the whipped ricotta filling and spread it onto 1/2 of a crepe. Fold the crepe once over the filling, and then fold it again to form a fan shape. Repeat this step on the remaining 3 crepes.
  • Serve the crepes immediately. Sprinkle with fresh parsley or serve with fresh greens if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

A handheld electric mixer can be used instead of a stand mixer.
