These ham and cheese crepes make a nice dish for a brunch, lunch, or dinner. Use homemade crepes (recipe included) or buy ready-made crepes. Although crepes are thinner and more delicate, they're as easy to mix and cook as pancakes.

If you are making crepes from scratch, plan to make the batter at least an hour ahead of time and let it rest in the refrigerator.

What You'll Need

  • For the Crepes (may use ready-made crepes)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • For the Filling
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 12 slices cooked, thinly sliced ham
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

How to Make It

  1. If making crepes from scratch: in a blender, process the eggs with milk. Add the flour, 4 tablespoons of melted butter, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Blend until the batter is smooth. Pour into a container, cover, and let stand for 1 hour or refrigerate for up to 12 hours.
  2. Heat the oven to 350 F. Sprinkle each crepe with 2 tablespoons of shredded cheese; top each with ​a ham slice. 
  3. In ​a small bowl, combine the onion, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, pepper, sour cream and mustard; mix well. Spread about 1 tablespoon of the sour cream mixture over ham. Roll up and arrange in 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan. Combine 3 tablespoons of melted butter and bread crumbs; sprinkle over crepes and cover pan loosely with foil.
  1. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Serve crepes immediately.
