Crepe and salad on plateHere on the islands we eat crepes like Americans eats pancakes. I live in a French territory with a French influence when it comes to cooking. Every restaurant here on our islands serves crepes for desert. You can find crepes filled with fruit, chocolate, or a variety of other sweet fillings. They top this off with whipping cream.

However, crepes are not only for desert and they can be filled with different meats and cheeses and baked in the oven. Most of the restaurant will fill the crepes with ham and cheese and serve them with a salad. I prefer to make my crepes a bit different. If you are looking for a different meal to serve your family, I suggest you try this recipe.

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Cook Time: 15 to 25 minutes

Total Time: 1.5 hours

Yield: 8 stuffed crepes

  22. Cook your crepes. When I cook crepes I just add a small amount of butter to my crepe pan for the first crepe.
  23. Pour the crepe batter into the crepe pan and tilt the pan to cover the bottom of the pan.

  25. When the crepe looks a bit dry on the top, turn the crepe over and cook the other side.

  27. I normally make one crepe and stuff the crepe before making a second one. This works out better and it is easy to work with.

  33. Finish cooking the crepes and stuffing them.
  34. When you have finished adding all your crepes to your casserole dish, top the crepes with the remainder of your cheese.

  36. Bake in a 350 F oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until the cheese has melted and is nicely brown.
  37. Remove from the oven and serve this with a nice salad.

This makes a delicious meal and everyone will love the sweet and salty taste. You can make a cream sauce and pour over the top of your crepes or just serve the crepes as is. I prefer to just serve my crepes like this and not add a cream sauce to mine. There are many people who love cream sauces and will add this to the top of their crepes. Here on the island people normally only make stuffed ham and cheese crepes. I prefer to add a few vegetables to mine and make a complete meal.
