French crepes rolled and stuffed with mushrooms & ham

Servings 8
Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes


  • 8 crepes to make 8 pancakes, you will need the following quantities of ingredients: 160 g of flour, 2 eggs, 25 g of melted butter, 32 cl of milk
  • 500 g button mushrooms
  • 100 g scallots
  • ½ glass of white wine
  • 7 tbsp thick sour cream
  • 60 g grated cheese
  • 8 thin slices of ham or 4 big slices cut in half
  • 25 g butter
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • nutmeg
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Prepare the crepe mixture if you need to cook some.
  • Chop shallots and mushrooms very finely after cleaning them. These ingredients will be used to prepare a duxelles (finely chopped mushrooms steamed in butter with onions and/or shallots).
  • First fry the shallots for a good 5 minutes in a frying pan with a knob of butter on medium heat. Mix regularly.
  • Then add the mushrooms and cover. Stir from time to time.
  • After about 10 minutes, remove the lid and finish cooking for another 10 minutes, allowing the cooking water to evaporate. If necessary, remove the remaining cooking juice with a strainer.
  • Season the preparation: add a dash of lemon juice, grate the nutmeg generously, season with pepper and a little salt.
  • Then add 3 tablespoons of sour cream and the white wine. Mix well and reduce again for 5 minutes, then set aside.
  • If you don’t already have crepe, cook some in a crepe pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C and then prepare the stuffed crepes.
  • Take a crepe, place a slice of ham in the center of the crepe, and pour 3 tablespoons of mushroom duxelles in the center of the crepe, forming a sausage.
  • Roll the crepe on itself and place in a buttered casserole dish (choose a dish that is neither too large nor too small so that it can be filled with all the rolled crepes).
  • Do the same with the other crepes.
  • Brush the top of the crepes with the remaining sour cream and sprinkle with grated cheese.
  • Bake at 200°C for 12 minutes. Check the baking process.
  • Serve hot with a small salad (e.g. endives).


For a vegetarian version, simply remove the ham.
