    A lovely light savoury crepe recipe that incorporates all of the flavours of Christmas. Great for using up leftover turkey on Boxing Day, too. You can also pan fry the crepes ahead of time, then fill and grill them the following day.

    1. To make crepes, sift flour with a pinch of salt into a bowl. Whisk in egg. Stir in half of milk, until smooth. Stir in remaining milk and cream. Allow to rest 30 minutes.
    2. Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium. Brush with a little melted butter. Add a ladle of batter and tilt pan to cover base. Cook for 1 minute, until bubbles appear. Turn crepe and cook for another minute. Repeat with more butter and batter to make four crepes.
    3. Preheat oven grill on medium. Place crepes on a flat surface and top each with turkey, Jarlsberg cheese, cranberry sauce and asparagus. Season with black pepper. Roll to enclose.
    4. Place in a baking dish, pour over cream and sprinkle with grated Cheddar. Place under grill for 3 minutes, until cheese melts and cream is bubbling.
    5. Serve immediately with a drizzle of cranberry sauce and dill to garnish.

    Made it vegetarian. Substitute the turkey with Silken tofu for a tasty tweak!  -  29 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Make the most of the season's beautiful fresh asparagus! So easy & very stylish, I serve it on my Wedgewood green entree plates with red napkins to add to the Christmas theme.  -  29 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
