Ham, Cheese & Asparagus Crepes !

"Authentic French Canadian crepe! I got this recipe several years ago when I had lunch in a small cafe in Quebec City. I had never tried a crepe before but it was delicious...black forest ham, lots of melted mozzarela cheese and asparagus tips...all of that wrapped in a very light crepe (or pancake) batter...and covered with maple syrup! This recipe has become a staple in my home over the years. Can double as a breakfast or a quick dinner.....and it tastes great no matter what time of day or night this is served. This was definitely a case of love at first bite!"

Ready In:
4 large crepes




  • Use a non-stick frying pan (or if you don't have one, a very lightly greased pan) and heat it to medium.(I like LARGE crepes -- so I used a large non-stick frying pan -- but you can use a smaller one for smaller size crepes).
  • In a bowl, combine flour, milk, eggs, sugar, oil and salt. Beat until well blended (no lumps).
  • When the pan is hot, add 3 - 4 tbsps. of batter. Swirl the batter until the bottom is coated and part way up the side of the pan.
  • Add 1/4 of the mozzarela cheese, ham (I like to use shredded ham but you can cut up the ham into small pieces),asparagus tips.
  • Cook until the edges of the crepe start to come away from the side of the pan and the bottom is golden brown (about 5 minutes).
  • Using a spatula, slowly fold the crepe in half and repeat until all of your crepes are made. Should yield about 4 large.
  • Serve immediately with a bit of butter on top and maple syrup -- pure comfort !

    Made for PAC Fall '06 I used canned asparagus to stay true to the recipe (despite my instinct to steam fresh spears) and I now know that I really hate canned asparagus. Aside from that, I liked this better when I flipped the crepe in the pan before stuffing it w/ the filling. When made as written I thought the crepes were too "goopy" on the inside. One great thing about this recipe is that the crepe mixture refridgerates well so you can make them "to order" instead of all at once. Also I didn't care for the maple syrup finish for this -- just not a fan of sweet w/ cheese & veges.


Love to try new recipes......this website is the best ! I have tried several others but always end up coming back here ! It's now one of my favourites....and the first place I go for any meal suggestions ! I tend to use recipes as guidelines rather than the exact way of doing cooking. Cooking should be fun and experimental...at least I think so...to give you something a bit different every time you make a recipe. I know that many of my recipes never turn out the same way twice....if they do then I did something wrong!
