    1. Prepare Crepe recipe according to recipe directions. Separate with greaseproof paper and keep warm until ready to serve.
    2. Place bacon in a large, deep frying pan. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, dice and set aside. Reserve about 1 tablespoon dripping, add a knob of butter, and saute mushrooms.
    3. In a separate saucepan, melt 50g butter over medium heat. Whisk in 4 tablespoons flour, stirring constantly, until a smooth paste is formed. Gradually stir in 225ml milk, stirring constantly until a smooth thick sauce is formed. Add bacon, mushrooms, spinach, parsley, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Let cook until somewhat thick, about 10 minutes.
    4. In a saucepan, bring stock to the boil. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and lemon juice. Temper eggs and stock together whisking constantly so as to cook, but not to scramble the eggs. Again, add salt and pepper to taste.
    5. Fill each crepe with spinach and meat filling, fold over, and top with warm egg lemon sauce.

    all pretty straight forward, the only problem is that you're juggling about 4 things at the same time - the kitchen looked like a bomb had hit it. next time i'll be preparing the filling and sauce in advance and reheating when i'm just about ready to serve. very tasty dish. will definitely make it again.  -  08 Mar 2011


    Took shortcuts. Left out the mushrooms - there weren't any at the shop, and I don't like them anyway!  -  10 Feb 2010
