Hot Date Crepes

These hot date crepes are packed with flavor from savory bacon, tangy goat cheese to sweet dates.

Hot Date Crepe filled with cheese, bacon, onions and dates

Remember when John and I were living in downtown Indianapolis and I could go to the City Farmer’s Market every Saturday? Well since it is a 30 minute drive it is a rare occasion that I go downtown any more other than my normal Monday-Friday commute to work. But when I do it isn’t just for the fresh produce, it is really to visit 3 Days in Paris – a savory & sweet crepe stand and get a Sweet Beet juice.

Some of my favorites crepes include their Red Eggs & Bacon Crepe – Eggs, Bacon, Havarti, Spinach and Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, their Classic Sweet Crepe – Nutella, Banana, and Nuts but most of all their weekly special their Hot Date Crepe – Dates, Bacon, Red Onion, Havarti & Goat Cheese, and Walnuts.

I was a little skeptical about the ingredients at first but I cannot pass up crepes filled with goat cheese. So why not throw in some chopped up dates?!

After eating quite a few of these and instagramming about it way too many times I decided to recreate their special at home. There are three options for the crepes themselves: 1) make the batter from scratch, 2) use a premade batter mix or 3) find crepes already made. Luckily, Fresh Market had some crepes in a package ready to go.

So whether you enjoy these crepes for breakfast since or a light lunch you will be wanting to make them again and again! I promise!

When I had goat cheese many years ago, I wasn't a fan. However, seeing the photo of your hot date crepes above makes me seriously reconsider trying it again. These look absolutely mouthwatering! Thanks so much for linking up to Delicious Dish Tuesday last week! We hope you'll come by again this week and share another tasty recipe!
