  1. For crepe mixture, combine the eggs, water, flour and salt in a blender. Cover and process until smooth; let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to the boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Reduce heat to low. Stir in 1/2 of the cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and salt until cheese is melted. Stir in broccoli. Cover; keep warm.
  3. Heat a lightly greased 20cm nonstick frying pan; pour 2 tablespoons of the crepe mixture into the centre of the pan. 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 mixture, greasing pan as needed.
  4. Spoon about 8 tablespoons of filling down the centre of each crepe; roll up. Place seam side down in an ungreased baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted.
