Recipe: Crepes with mushrooms and marjoram

Crepes, pancakes and tortillas with herbs
September 08, 2008

I've harvested a lot of marjoram this year from my garden, so I'm trying it in some new recipes.
I was craving some lasagna-like recipe, so I prepared some crepes.
These ones are covered with sauce and baked: in Italy we call them crespelle, but they're very similar to crepes.


Crepes with mushrooms and marjoram

Serves two-three:
8 crepes
40g butter
40g white flour
500ml milk
100g emmenthal cheese
1 yolk
1 pinch of nutmeg
25g dried mushrooms
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 clove garlic
1 tsp. marjoram
50g bacon

Mornay SauceDirections
Prepare Mornay sauce:
Melt the butter in a large pot. Add the flour and stir well. Pour the milk slowly, stirring constantly for 10 minutes over low heat.
Add cubed emmenthal and remove from heat when melted.
Add yolk and nutmeg, stir well and set aside.

Crepes with mushrooms and marjoramReconstitute the dried mushrooms by cover them with boiling water. Steep for 2 minutes, then strain the water.
Sautè in a pan with garlic, olive oil and marjoram for 5 minutes.
Fill each crepe with 1/8 mushrooms, a spoonful of Mornay sauce and some bacon.
Fold in four and put on a buttered baking pan. Cover with the remaining sauce and grill-bake for 15 minutes.

I never really thought of crepes as pasta, but really...what is ravioli if not dough filled with something wonderful. And these look amazing. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.

I think traditional crepes aren t a pasta... but cooked this way are more like lasagna or cannelloni, aren t they?
