There was a sale on blueberries, so I thought up this use for them. A great Sunday morning breakfast tradition, because they are relatively fast to fix.

2For the Crêpes:
Heat a 9" or 10" non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium-low heat. Brush with a tiny bit of oil or butter.
Combine milk, egg beaters, and baking mix with wire whisk until well blended. Let set about 3-5 minutes, then stir again before using.

3Pour 1/4 cup batter in preheated pan, and tilt pan around to help batter spread out into a thin circle. Cook until tiny bubbles on top break. Flip over, and cook until Crêpe slides freely in pan when shaken.

4Remove Crêpe to a plate and make the next Crêpe, brushing a tiny bit of oil or butter again on pan so that Crêpes brown nicely. Continue to make and stack Crêpes.
