    LMillerRN's Note:

    The herbed crepes can be doubled and extras frozen. Double all the ingredient, but use only 3 eggs. Use any combination of herbs that you like. We used chives and thyme.

      very good i added baby scallops and imitation crab to the shrimp as i used to buy these at a local grocery store in Campbell River B.C. on Vancouver Island both my husband and i absolutely loved them and i made them for our anniversary and he loved them the only thing is i would not add so much sauce but throw in mushroom buttons and seasonings.

      Yummy, had no gruyere, used cheddar and parmesan, also some mushrooms and a mixture of cooked prawns, oysters, fish and scallops (poached these in wine/water first)and served with steam vegies. Looked elegant on the plate.
