Crepesadilla (crepe + quesadilla)

"Crepesadilla” is the name for a food that’s part “crepe” and part “quesadilla.” Like the quesadilla, the crepesadilla contains cheese and other fillings. Like the crepe, the crepesadilla is a folded pancake (without the tortilla).

‘Crepesadilla” has had only a handful of citations between 2007-2009, from several areas of America (Maine, New York, Texas).

SUCCESS!!! They were delicious. Wielding the power of spices from ‘Merka(thank you, parents) I was able to make my own taco seasoning that was damned tasty. The only weak point was the substandard cheese, which is sadly the only thing available at the supermarket. Oh well. Crepesadillas were a blinding success, none the less.

I was in a crepe-y mood on Sunday, I guess — I made regular, sweet crepes for breakfast and then savory buckwheat crepes for dinner (using the recipes in my prized 1997 edition Joy of Cooking). For the kids, I made “crepesadillas” — crepes folded in half and filled with cheddar cheese, baked in a griddle until the cheese melted.

They were strangely crepe like, which, while not pleasant on the pallate, was nice in that it meant we could call them “crepesadillas. . .

. . .which, after we ate them, quickly became “crapsadillas.” I have to defer the description on this one to my guests/commenters, because a weird phenomenon happened: those of us who ate them right off the stove hated them.
