    This is a great alternative to the standard chicken, mushroom, and spinach crepes that I usually make. The sauce is really the winner in the dish - you could use it on any crepe. I removed the foil after the 20 minutes and broiled for a few minutes to get the tops nice and golden.

    I've made these twice now and think these are really good, but some additional tips on making the crepes would have been helpful. I did use whole-grain flour (white wheat), but I've made crepes with this before with fine results. These were very delicate and kept sticking to the pan in the middle, even though I was brushing it with high-heat olive oil. Only after a couple of messy, torn ones did I make just enough for us to sit down to dinner. I still have to make the rest. As for the 20 minutes in the oven, I skipped this and simply assembled right in the skillet after flipping each crepe. They were likely not as browned as they should have been, but after almost 2 hours of work (even with the sauce made in advance) I was finally able to get dinner on the table. I would make these again but probably using CL's Make-Ahead Crepes, which are all but foolproof.
