60 Second Blueberry Breakfast Crepes

By Brooke McLay |

Let’s be honest. This picture to the left is not how breakfast looks in my house. It’s is how a single plate of breakfast looks in my house. There is always one photo-ready plate that gets the spa treatment. A gentle dollop of whipped cream atop fresh blueberry crepes. A sprig of fresh mint. It’s a gorgeous idea, but it’s not my life.

Nope. Breakfast at my house is probably a lot like breakfast at your house. There are whiny kids with bed-rumpled hair. Dishes in the sink. A chihuahua on the loose. To prove this, I’m posting photos of what breakfast this morning was really like in the McLay household (after the jump).  You’ll see quite clearly, I’ve got no magical formula for making breakfast less hectic, but I have figured out how you and I can get warm crepes on our kitchen tables in less than a minute.

While I adore homemade crepes, they can be such a hassle to make. So I’ve started purchasing a couple packs of pre-made crepes and keeping them in the freezer. Because crepes are so thin, they can microwaved in a matter of seconds, and topped with fresh fruit even faster, making your hectic morning a little more relaxing.

60-Second Blueberry Breakfast Crepes
1 package premade crepes
1 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/4 cup sugar
1 container of Cool Whip or ReddiWhip

Step 1: Heat crepes in microwave until warm.
Step 2: Combine blueberries and sugar. Microwave until sugar dissolves and a warm syrup forms.
Step 3: Fold crepes into quarters. Slather with butter, if desired.
Step 4: Spoon warm blueberry sauce atop. Dollop with whipped cream.

To see what we were doing with our crepes this morning, scroll over the photo’s below for a description.

    Sigh, this sounds so fantastic….now if only I could just get my son to TRY it! The crepe? No problem. Whipped cream? Even better. Blueberries? Bribery will be needed. But I’m going to try anyway! Thanks for the yummy recipe! (from a fellow Minnesotan)

  2. Rick Stedman says:

    Can you really call it a recipe if it contains pre-cooked crepes and cool whip? Reminds me of the Rachel Ray “recipe” for pierogis, in which she instructs you to boil some frozen pierogis.

  3. T.Y. says:

    I was wondering about those readymade crepes! What a wonderful tip for a gourmet-feel breakfast. Thanks!

  4. mangiabella says:

    I love how you offer an alternative for those of us who get in a pinch and would love the feeling of an indulgent breakfast when we don’t have the time to get down in the kitchen!

  5. Huh says:

    Rubbish….premade crepes are godly expensive but are super cheap to make at home from scratch. You just need to find a good recipe.

  6. Sarah says:

    I was really disappointed in this “recipe.” Buying pre-made? NOT a recipe. It belongs on Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee.

  7. Tee says:

    I was intrigued by the picture but when I read that it was store-bought crepes with Cool Whip, I was totally turned off. What an awful breakfast! It takes no time at all to make a batch of fresh crepes at home and whip an amount of fresh whipping cream. I agree with the other posters – this is not a recipe at all.

  8. trish johnson says:

    well some of us work a twelve hour swing shift so this sounds great,,when i get home in the morning,,,i dont have all the ingredients or the time to whip it up by scratch…so premade is great for some of us…on my days off i cook,,

  9. Manda says:

    I will definitely try this. I always make my crepes from scratch, but it takes up a lot of time, therefore I wouldn’t mind trying this. I actually did not know you can buy crepes at the store. Do you mind telling me which grocery store?

  10. Audra says:

    I am sure made from scratch crepes are wonderful and I do make a lot of things from scratch. However in the mornings, with dairy goats to feed and milk, I don’t have time to make crepes from scratch so I am happy to see this. I will probably use fresh cream from my goats milk to drizzle over it rather than cool whip but the rest sounds fine to me.

    Once again another misleading title

  12. Kelly says:

    Come on people. I do make my own crepes but I think this is a GREAT idea for those times when…you just don’t have time! Let’s be nice and not so negative.

  13. Tiffsters says:

    This is a fabulous breakfast idea for people who are busy like myself who love blueberry crepes and have no time to make them fresh! Of course, there are others who stay home all day and have plenty of time to make fresh crepes, whip cream and pick their own blueberries from their backyard garden who make negative comments about this amazing recipe idea. I absolutely love, love, love it!!!!!!!!!! So don’t let anyone make you feel less of a cook! ;-)

  14. Jeena says:

    I love this! I’m crazy busy in the mornings, but I love making the kids something warm. I found some frozen crepes that my kids love. It’s so nice to customize them for each kid (which we never do with other breakfasts- too much time). Love, love, love it! My daughter wants to have them for her Parisian themed birthday lunch with her little friends.

  15. Bex says:

    Agreed. Not impressed with the packaged crepes, but I guess I can understand (I don’t have three kids). Coolwhip though??? If you don’t have thirty seconds to whip up some cream, why not use something like maple syrup instead? Would never feed that s@*t to my kid!! Not a recipe.

  16. Lisa says:

    Wow people are so negative. Who cares if stuff is premade, you still put it together and I know a mom like me with 3 kids under 6, this is a great idea! Just take it for what it is and if you don’t like it, don’t make it!
    Thank you Brooke for this RECIPE! Can’t wait to try it!
