Broccoli Cheese Beer Crepes

Broccoli Cheese Beer Crepes have cheesy broccoli filling in tasty crepes made with beer. No special equipment required for these easy vegetarian crepes, just a small skillet is all that is needed to make the beer crepes. Also, using steam-in-bag broccoli keeps making the filling a cinch. Both the broccoli cheese filling and the crepes can be made in advance too!

Pizza and crepes. Crepes and pizza. And popovers. These are a few of my favorite things and you can browse my collection of crepes recipes for inspiration if you feel, as I do, that crepes are just super delicious. If you don’t know where to start, or if you prefer traditional crepes rather than these beer crepes, this Savory Crepes recipe is my ride or die.

About the recipe

These vegetarian crepes were inspired by a recipe I read in a very old cookbook I found at my mom’s house, The Women’s Day Crepe Cookbook by Sylvia Schur. The book is copyright 1976, so hence the condensed cream of celery soup and I’m fine with it. Sorry not sorry.

These broccoli cheese crepes are SO tasty and really very easy to make. Everything can be done a day in advance (simply wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate). And while I had dinner in mind when I made up this recipe, I can totally see these blessing a brunch buffet or spread of elegant party foods.

About the ingredients

See the recipe card for the full ingredient listing. There is nothing here that is not easy to get a typical grocery store. If steam-in-bag broccoli is not available, one head of broccoli from the fresh produce section should do it. And as for the cream of celery soup, use the Campbell’s original regular version. The low sodium, heart healthy cream soups don’t have as much flavor. UNLESS you need to reduce your sodium, then by all means do that. Just take care to read the label because I can’t count how many times I’ve grabbed the wrong one by mistake.

Ingredients
  

For the beer crepes

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup beer
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • olive oil cooking spray

For the broccoli cheese filling

  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion 1 medium-sized yellow onion
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1 (12 oz) bag steam-in-bag (microwavable) broccoli florets
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 pinches fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese see Notes

For the topping

  • 1 (10.5 oz) can condensed cream of celery soup see Notes
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese see Notes

Instructions
 

Make the beer crepes

  • Whisk together the ingredients for the crepes.
  • Heat a small skillet on high heat.
  • Adding cooking spray to the skillet before each crepe: add a scant ¼ cup batter to the hot skillet and immediately move the skillet in a "tilt-a-whirl" fashion to get the batter to coat the bottom in a thin layer (see Notes).
  • Once underside is golden, flip and cook the other side until also golden.
  • Transfer to a plate and repeat to make the rest of the crepes. This recipe yields 12 crepes.

Make the broccoli cheese filling

  • In the same small skillet used to make the crepes, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until fragrant. Set aside.
  • Cook the broccoli to al dente in the microwave according to package directions. To avoid over cooking, use the lower time provided in the directions (i.e. if directions say to cook 3-5 minutes, cook 3 minutes). Chop.
  • In a bowl, combine the onion and garlic mixture, broccoli, cheese, salt, and pepper.

Assemble the crepes

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Divide the broccoli cheese filling onto the crepes, roll up, and place in a 13×9 bake dish.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the soup, milk, and sour cream. Spread ~1/2 this mixture onto the crepes.
  • Top crepes with remaining ½ cup cheese.
  • Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until warmed through and bubbly around the edges.

Notes

For in-depth instruction on making crepes (including photos), see my recipe for Savory Crepes.
If the skillet gets too hot (i.e. the cooking spray starts smoking), keep the pan off the heat a minute to dissipate some heat.
For the shredded cheddar, I prefer a mix of sharp and white cheddar so that the cheese is not all orange.
I only end up using about half of the soup mixture. We just want to spread it on top of the crepes as a condiment and not submerge them completely. Discard the rest or reserve for another purpose.
