Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour with 1/8 teaspoon salt. In small bowl whisk together egg, egg whites, and buttermilk. Slowly whisk egg mixture into flour until batter has consistency of heavy cream.

  • Heat oven to 200 degrees. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add potatoes, remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper; cook, tossing occasionally, until potatoes are golden brown, about 12 minutes. Add stock; cook, tossing, until all liquid is absorbed, about 1 minute. Remove from heat; cover.

  • Meanwhile, place medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; lightly spray with cooking spray. Pour 3 tablespoons batter into center of skillet; swirl pan to create crepe about 5 inches in diameter. Cook until speckled golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place in oven to keep warm. Continue making crepes until all batter is used.

  • Place crepe on work surface; place a heaping tablespoon of potatoes in center. Top with tablespoon of yogurt and 1/4 teaspoon of each caviar. Add sprig of chervil; roll up. Repeat the process with remaining crepes and fillings.

Cook's Notes

Weather can affect the consistency of crepe batter; if it's too thick to swirl in the pan, add a bit more buttermilk.
