Golden Egg Crepes
(8 servings) Printable Version
To make the crepes, heat a 6- or 7-inch crepe pan, and rub with a paper towel that has been dipped in oil. Repeat between crepes. Use a 1/4 cup measure for dipping up batter. Pour into crepe pan, tilting the pan so the batter is coated evenly. Turn with a spatula or pancake turner. Crepes should be thin and golden brown on both sides. Stack on a plate until ready to fill.
For The Filling:
- 12 eggs - separated
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 ounces Parmesan cheese
- 4 slices of finely chopped ham
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter - melted
- salt and pepper to taste
- additional butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Beat egg yolks, milk cheese, salt and pepper until light and fluffy. Add chopped ham and melted butter. Whip 12 egg whites separately until they form soft peaks, and fold into egg yolk mixture. Cook slowly in a double boiler, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon. When cooked, the eggs should be removed from heat. Stir in additional 3 Tablespoons of unsalted butter and allow to cool.
When cooked, stuff and roll crepes with the egg and ham mixture and place in a lightly buttered casserole or oven-proof dish. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Bake crepes for 10 minutes until lightly browned and bubbly. Serve at once (topped with Hollandaise sauce if desired).
