Delice Lorraine (Crepes With Cheese & Ham Filling)
25 mins (prep 20, cooking 5)
6 ingredients
4-6 servings
I first saw this made on TV in New Zealand by Chef Des Britten in 1974, and have made it on & off over the years as an easy entree or lunch dish. You can also use asparagus in season or leftover chicken or even canned salmon in place of the ham. This is a great do ahead dish as they only need to be grilled/broiled just before you want to serve them.
