This is an elegant dish. The first time I made them, my husband thought I picked them up from a restaurant. Was he ever surprised! This would make a nice romantic dinner with candlelight! The recipe seems long but it includes a recipe for the filling, the Mornay Sauce, and crepes themselves.

This recipe is to die for... rich and elegant, completely worth the effort. I served this with stuffed artichokes and spinach salad with carmelized pecans. I substituted portabello mushrooms, added dill to the crepe batter, and added an extra cup of crab. I'm sure its fantastic either way. Thank you so much!

Absoulty fantastic, was a great hit and no one could get enough of them and everyone wanted the recipe. I have had these in several resturants that were not as great as these were. Ms. Taylor reid

I AM A PIG! It was a snow day but I had no intentions of shovelling and even fewer of going to the store. I made your recipe as a concilation prize for DH who was now going to get stuck with ALL the shovelling :) The crepe mixture made seven crepes but I only stuffed (and I mean STUFFED) four of them using all of the filling. Served them with a walnut/pear & blue cheese salad and ate two!!!! 50% of the filling. YIKES Now neither DH or I are able to do more than waddle to the couch. The snow can wait Thanks for the recipe was wonderful.
