    You should probably change your title to something more descriptive of your instructable. For example "How to make crepes for Chandeleur (Candlemas / Groundhog Day). It took me until the middle of your instructable to figure out what you were actually making...

    French word for these is "crêpes" (plural) You can cook it one side, then return and put on it some cheese, ham, egg. The recipe may be changed a bit for these as it is a salty meal. Happy chandeleur everybody

    if you want try salty meal, replace flour by black wheat flour (sarrasin) . taste is better
