Way to use eggs for low carb recipes

How to make savory low carb crepes
These egg crepes are very easy to make and great for savory dishes. All you need is two frying pans, eggs and cooking spray.
- Heat both a small frying pan and another larger frying pan on medium heat. Spray both with cooking spray.
- Then beat one egg and add to the smaller pan. Swirl in pan so the egg is covering the whole surface.
- When it’s almost cooked, loosen the edges with a spatula and then flip over the pan, into the larger pan to cook for a minute.
- Repeat to make more crepes. This whole process will take only a few minutes.
