  • Prep time:30 Minutes
  • Cook time:5 Minutes
  • Stand:15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup(s) water
  • 6 tablespoon(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • FILLING:
  • 2 tablespoon(s) chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 1 tablespoon(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup(s) milk
  • 1 cup(s) (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon(s) Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2 cup(s) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed

Preparation

• For batter, combine the eggs, water, flour and salt in a blender. Cover and process until smooth; let stand for 15 minutes.

• Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Reduce heat to low. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and salt until cheese is melted. Stir in broccoli. Cover; keep warm.

• Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet; pour 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed.

• Spoon about 1/2 cup filling down the center of each crepe; roll up. Place seam side down in an ungreased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6 filled crepes.
