Grilled Pineapple Crepes

Since you’re already spending time outside on your grill, why not add a dessert?  There’s something about how the flames of a grill can turn any fruit into a caramelized, smoky treat.  I recommend picking fruits like peaches, melons, pineapple, pears, bananas, and figs which will hold their shape while cooking. So just throw YOUR favorite on a hot grill and stand by while they develop gorgeous grill marks. You can do it plain, kabob style, over ice cream, or like I have, over crepes! And, since crepes are basically thin pancakes, this is one dessert that can be made for breakfast – just add Greek or Icelandic yogurt for some protein!
