Ham 'n' Cheese Crepes for Two Recipe

Ham 'n' Cheese Crepes for Two Recipe

These thin pancakes from Marion Lowery of Medford, Oregon are easy to freeze and thaw, so you cook up a batch, prepare just enough for two and save the rest for another time.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 to 3 tablespoons 2% milk, divided
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS (for 4 crepes):
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 thin slices deli ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a blender, combine the water, 1/3 cup milk, flour, egg, butter and salt; cover and process until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes; stir. Add remaining milk if batter is too thick.
  • 2. Heat a lightly greased 8-in. skillet; add about 3 tablespoons batter. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. Stack four crepes with waxed paper in between; cover and freeze for up to 3 months.
  • 3. Spread mustard over remaining crepes; top each with ham and cheese. Roll up tightly. Place in an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 10-14 minutes or until heated through.
  • 4. To use frozen crepes: Thaw in the refrigerator for about 2 hours. Fill and bake as directed. Yield: 4 filled crepes plus 4 unfilled crepes.
