DIRECTIONS

  • Crêpes:
  • Mix together the flour and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add the combined eggs and milk; gradually mixing into the flour with a whisk.
  • Continue to whisk until a smooth batter forms.

  • Heat your pan to medium high. Add oil to your pan and wipe with on a scrunched up piece of paper towel. Set aside to use between each crepes.
  • Pour a small ladleful of batter (1/4 cup) into the hot pan and tilt the pan so that the batter spreads out evenly. Cook for a minute or two on each side or until lightly browned.
  • Use a knife & spatula to flip crêpes. Stack on a plate until ready to use;put a piece of wax paper in between each.(Can be frozen at this stage, wrapped tightly for up to 3 months.
  • Filling:
  • Heat butter in small frying pan. Add onions and cook until just tender and translucent. Add mushrooms and cook until liquid has evaporated.
  • Stir in flour and cook, stirring one minute. Gradually add milk, stirring continuously; bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and set aside 1 cup of sauce for later.
  • Stir in chicken, half of the cheese, parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Cool 5 minutes before filling crepes with mixture.
  • To finish the stuffed crepes, lay a crêpe out on counter top. Place a couple of tablespoons of filling mixture along the centre and roll up to enclose.
