ingredients


Crepes

3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cup milk or half and half
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded

Filling

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup green onion, minced
2 pounds crab meat, flaked
salt and pepper, to taste
1 pinch garlic powder
1/2 cup dry vermouth

Sauce

2/3 cup dry vermouth
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup milk
4 cups heavy cream
salt and white pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cup Swiss cheese, grated

directions

For Crepes: Place eggs, milk and butter in mixer bowl; add flour and mix on high about 1 minute, until smooth. Refrigerate batter at least 2 hours before making crepes.

To cook crepes, pour 3 tablespoons batter into greased, heated skillet; cook until dry on one side.

For Filling: Melt butter in skillet; stir in green onions and crab meat. Mix lightly and cook a few minutes; adjust seasonings. Add vermouth and boil rapidly until liquid is almost evaporated. Scrape from skillet into bowl; reserve.

For Sauce: Blend cornstarch and milk; reserve. Put vermouth in same skillet that filling was cooked in; boil rapidly until vermouth is reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Remove from heat; stir in cornstarch and milk mixture.

Return skillet to low heat and add cream slowly, along with salt and pepper; cook several minutes until slightly thickened. Stir in cheese and cook until melted and well-blended; adjust seasoning.

To assemble crepes, blend half the filling with the sauce; adjust seasoning as needed. Place 1 large spoonful of crab mixture on each crepe and roll; place seam side down in buttered large rectangular glass baking dishes.

Spoon remaining crab mixture over crepes; sprinkle with grated cheese and dot with butter. Bake uncovered in preheated 400 degrees F oven for 20 minutes.

Delicious beyond my wildest dreams. If I didn't know better, I'd think I was served this rich and creamy dish at a 5 star seafood restaurant with a view of the sea.
