"The beauty of these crepes is that they can be cooked ahead and stored in the freezer until you need them," explains Marion Lowery of Medford, Oregon. "I thaw a few at a time, roll them with ham and cheese and serve them for breakfast, lunch or a quick snack."


  • 2/3 cup cold water
  • 2/3 cup plus 4 to 6 tablespoons cold whole milk, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS (for 8 crepes):
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 8 thin slices deli ham
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a blender, combine the water, 2/3 cup of milk, flour, eggs, butter and salt. Cover and process until smooth. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Add remaining milk if batter is too thick.
  2. Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 3 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between. Cover and freeze for up to 3 months. Yield: 16 crepes.
  3. To use frozen crepes: Thaw 8 crepes in the refrigerator for about 2 hours. Spread each with mustard; top with a slice of ham and sprinkle with cheese. Roll up tightly.
  4. Place in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 10-14 minutes or until heated through.
