This recipe is based on one from Linda Gassenheimer’s book, More Low-Carb Meals in Minutes. She says that the secret to this dish is making eggs into thin crepes. Use a good nonstick skillet for best results. My picky DH really likes it. I make it with turkey Canadian bacon and eggs; 4 large eggs is about a cup. Hint: you can make the crepes ahead, and fill and warm in a microwave oven when needed.
