Ingredients

  • 1 shallot
  • 10.6 oz. (300 g) champignons

Instructions

  1. Follow the recipe for French crepes to make savory-style crepes.

  2. To make the garnish, cut off the stems of the mushrooms, wash and brush them, and cut them into pieces or strips. Let them dry on a paper towel. Peel the shallot, and chop it finely. Heat a frying pan with olive oil, and brown the shallot for a minute. Then add mushrooms and sauté them over medium-high heat for about 5-10 minutes until the vegetation water is almost absorbed. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Place a slice of ham, grated cheese, and mushrooms in the center of the crêpe and roll it. Or garnish 1/2 of each crepe, cover with another half and fold again, making a triangle shape. Serve immediately.

  4. If serving later, reheat crepes in the oven at 355 degrees F/180 degrees C for a few minutes. Serve Parisian crepes hot with a dollop of whipped heavy cream (optional) and green salad. 

Notes

  1. The key to being able to wrap the filling is making a thin crepe. So, make sure to make a liquid and smooth batter.
  2. The important thing is to pour it into the center of the hot skillet to obtain a thin layer of the batter.
  3. Cook over medium-high heat until slightly color the crepe.
