Fabulous Find | EGG THiNS by Crepini

Oh my gosh, you guys... Have you heard of Crepini - Egg Thins with Cauliflower?? 

This is a full post about a new product that I stumbled upon at Costco last week. I love it so much that  rather than just including it in a "Things I Love Thursday" post, I thought it deserved its own spotlight. If you're someone who tries to limit your sugar and carbohydrate intake, you'll want to keep reading. This post is not sponsored in any way. I have just honestly fallen for these little wraps.

I'm not sure why they caught my eye (and I actually don't even remember which section I found them in) but I'm so happy I looked closer at the packaging and noticed that these little crepes had no net-carbohydrates per serving. Always good news. They're also sugar-free, grainless, gluten-free, and natural.

If you're not familiar with crepes, you should know that they are very thin (not-too-sweet) "pancakes" that can be combined with other ingredients/fillings to make the dish savory or sweet. In many cases, they can also be substituted for tortillas --very thin tortillas. Traditional crepes do not include cauliflower --they do include sugar, vanilla, milk, and flour (which these do not).

When you first open the package, they DO smell a little funny. It's the cauliflower. It can't be helped. But I have not once tasted the cauliflower in any of the following recipes. Every combination included in this post starts with Crepini's recommendation of sautéing the thin first in a pan with a little butter. For a crispier texture, I increased the heat and the sauté time. For the sweet combination (with strawberries, below) I used a low temperature to simply warm through the crepe and leave it soft and very pliable.

So far, I've tried them four ways --in three savory combinations and one sweet. All were delicious and very satisfying. I recommend you give them a try. 

Simple Tortilla with Scrambled Eggs and Chorizo Sausage + Shredded Cheese

Lunch "Taco" with Marinated Heirloom Tomatoes, Basil, Avocado + Burrata

They are strong enough to hold up as a "shell" with fillings inside.

Shredded Rotisserie Chicken + Cheese Quesadilla

Strawberry, Almond Butter, Chocolate Chip Crepe with Swerve-Sweetened (Almond) Whipped Cream


I've since learned they come in a few different varieties (sweet potato would be worth trying) and are carried at Walmart and Publix (in the Charlotte area). If you try them, I'd love to hear what you think and I'd especially love to know what you're enjoying them with. Comment below!
