TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + standing Bake: 5 min. YIELD:2 servings
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup water
- 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
- 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
- 1. For batter, combine the eggs, water, flour and salt in a blender. Cover and process until smooth; let stand for 15 minutes.
- 2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Reduce heat to low. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and salt until cheese is melted. Stir in broccoli. Cover; keep warm.

- 4. Spoon about 1/2 cup filling down the center of each crepe; roll up. Place seam side down in an ungreased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6 filled crepes.
