These are good, I added cayenne and Parmesan cheese to the roux and used recipoe#124163 for the crepes. I just drizzled some melted butter and then sprinkled Parmesan cheese and garlic powder over the crepes before baking, delicious! thanks Paula!...Kitten:)

Well, I *wanted* to like these, but they really just did not do it for us. I used Basic Whole Wheat French Crepes #102058 and got 9 crepes, rather than 8 (I guess my cauliflower was a little bit big). I love cauliflower, but we just found this very bland and "white" tasting. I really feel like these needed something to give them a bit of oomph. I added a little bit of thyme and pepper with the salt, but they didn't really even show through. I think these would benefit from the addition of some onion or garlic or spices or something, but as it is it was just plain to the point of being unpalatable. We ate them but it is not something I would repeat. Sorry, Paula.

This was great. I cheated and used store bought crepes.Used fresh ground nutmeg in the sauce skipped the salt and followed everything else. Delish! --
