Give breakfast a French twist with our fruity crêpes. Just make sure to fill them quickly since sautéed crêpes become crisp and firm as they cool.

Ingredients

pear(s)

4 medium, ripe, unpeeled

butter flavour cooking spray

1 spray(s)

unpacked brown sugar

1 Tbsp

lemon zest

2½ tsp

almonds

2 Tbsp, sliced

reduced-calorie margarine

2 tsp

crepe(s)

4 item(s), store-bought

Instructions

  1. Quarter pears lengthwise and remove cores. Slice each pear wedge horizontally into 1/4-inch thick slices.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over low heat; add pears and sauté until very tender, about 5 minutes. Add sugar, zest and almonds; sauté 2 minutes, remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Wipe skillet clean with a paper towel (make sure skillet has cooled before touching it) and place over medium heat. Melt 1/2 teaspoon of margarine in skillet; add 1 crêpe to skillet. Cook until crêpe is lightly browned around edges, about 30 seconds. Remove crêpe to a serving plate and spoon 1/4 of pear mixture down the width of crêpe; roll up and repeat with remaining ingredients. Yields 1 crêpe per serving.
