Keto Crepes Suzette. Somewhere in one of the many recipes on this site I talked about having worked for the Broker Restaurants, a group of restaurants in Denver. Mine was the Continental and it was the only one that did table-side cooking and yes, I wanted to increase my tips so when Eugene, our Maître d’ was busy, I would step in and do table-side for the other wait staff. One of the fancy dancy desserts we did was Crepes Suzette. Remembering that this was in the mid 70’s, a fully prepared table-side dinner was only between $9-$10. The crepes suzette was about $3. and that was a fortune back then. Whoa, those really were the good old days. Think of this; I lived up into the mountains, about a 50 minute drive, and sometimes had to work a split shift which meant a 2-3 hour afternoon break. I couldn’t go home & come back because the drive was too long but guess what I did get to do.
I went next door to the original Cherry Creek hole-in-the-wall (yeah only 950’ ft on 2 floors) Tattered Cover Bookstore and settled into the dreamworld that is books. Now, I would liken the Tattered Cover to Powell’s Books here in Portland, and Strand Bookstore in New York City. They are all three huge, they are iconic, and they are all independently owned and are NOT Amazon.
So, I have been a bit long winded and the keto crepes suzette recipe is so small and easy it’s ridiculous. You will need a recipe for Zero Carb Flaxseed Meal Crepes to finish the dish.
