Stuffed French Crêpes~

   I wanted to make this since 2010, but I couldn't, because I don't have a big non-stick pan in my kitchen :( Until my mom bought me one last year (2011) November. Thanks to  her a lot really.

  French Crepes, a useful stuff it is honestly. Can be use in many purpose and turn out a lot of different dishes.

  French Crepes for savoury dishes contain a wee bit different to dessert crepes. It should have no sugar and any liquor in the batter of the crepes. However, they cooked in the same way.

French Crepes (Savoury Crepes)
3 eggs
2 cup flour
1cups milk
1 cup water
2 tbsp vegetable oil
¼ tsp salt

1.      Whisk all the ingredients together inside a big bowl.
2.      Chill the mixture in the fridge for 1 hour, at least. (Do not miss step!)
3.      Grease the wide pan with small cloth dunked with oil, then, pours a cup of chilled crepe’s mixture to cook for 45 seconds for each side.

Stuffed Crepes
10-12 large french crepes
2 tbsp olive oil
2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can mushroom, diced
1 lb ground pork (or any meat you wish to add)
¼ cup hot sauce
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp thyme 
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp dark soy sauce
Salt & pepper to taste

1.     Heat pan on medium-high heat, sauté onions and mushrooms with olive oil for about 5 minutes or until onion is soft and transparent.
2.      Add meat and keep separate them. Cook until it turns brown.
3.   Add all the spices into the meat and cook for a few minutes until done.
4.   Stuff French crepes with the filling, dim-fry stuffed crepes with olive oil on a pan for a minutes each sides or until sides turns a bit golden brown.
5.   Or you can do it this way, brush them with olive oil and arrange on baking dish. Bake in preheated oven 375'F (180'C) for 15-20 minutes or until slightly golden.

 Additionally, you can do it another way: spread a little bit of spaghetti sauce on baking dish before you arrange the crepes. And then cover with more spaghetti sauce on top, of course along with some mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese above. Finally go into the oven, bake for 25-30 minutes~ Chill for a few minutes before serving or you'll get your tongue burnt!!
Go and Try to make one yourself, Enjoy~~
