How to make crepes suzette

First of all, prepare the base of the crepes following the procedure found in CREPES.

Then focus on the suzette sauce.

First of all, grate the zest of 3 oranges, taking care to create many thin threads of peel with the zest of half an orange, being careful not to remove the white part, which is the most bitter.

Then squeeze the juice from the oranges and filter it.

Finally, grate the lemon zest, squeeze the lemon juice and filter it through a sieve and add it to the orange juice:

When you have all the ingredients ready, fold the crepes into 4 parts, packing them into segments, as you can see from the photo below.

Finally, in a cast iron or steel pan which is the best for flaming, place the butter together with the sugar and all the grated peels and threads and melt over a low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon. Within 1 minute you will obtain a super fragrant caramelized butter.

At this point, add the citrus juice and cook the sauce over low heat for 2 minutes:

Finally, dip the packaged crepes in the orange sauce, placing them along the pan not against each other, but close to each other, so that they all get flavoured.

Finally, take the stamp and pour in the Grand Marnier liqueur previously heated on the stove.

At this point, hold a kitchen torch and flambé, setting the surface of the cracks on fire: the fire will rise, but don’t worry, this is how it should be.

Be careful when flaming: move your torso and face away from the burners and only reach out with your hand towards the pan. Remember that to turn off the flame just cover your pan with a lid. So it’s important to keep the lid handy.

At this point, set the crepes aside and let the sauce thicken on a high heat for 2 minutes, so that it becomes thicker, then place the crepes back in the pan and serve the Crepe suzette beautiful hot!

I advise you to spoil them immediately because they are at their best when hot. In any case, you can keep them in the fridge for the next day and return them to the heat by heating them with the fragrant sauce.

How to make a potato roll

When I say that the potato roll is the perfect dinner saver, I’m not joking! And I know that when you think of potatoes you think of all the time it takes to blanch them, let them cool and then use them in the preparation. But this is not the case! My potato roll is prepared in 30 minutesyou use raw potatoes and fill it with what the fridge has to offer!

And then, I’m sure everyone at home likes it… children, adults, elderly people, rebellious teenagers included! Its delicate and tasty taste at the same time and its softness would conquer anyone! Since the potato roll recipe is very simple, I want to give you some original ideas for the filling:

  • Emmental and speck: this is my version and if you like the smoky flavor of speck you will go crazy!
  • Sautéed radicchio and gorgonzola: a pleasure! The bitterness of radicchio goes well with gorgonzola. All you need to do is finely cut a head of radicchio, cook it in a pan with oil, garlic and salt and in a few minutes it will be ready to use inside the potato roll. A few flakes of gorgonzola and you’re done!
  • Rocket, brie and walnuts: this filling is no joke either! Perfect if you have vegetarian guests (but the one above is fine too), quick and super good.
