  • Mushroom and cheese crepes are a delicious take on the traditionally sweet sweet and they make a delicious starter...

    Our Mushroom and cheese crepes are filled with garlic mushrooms and indulgent brie cheese – they are sure to be a hit with the whole family. These French-inspired crepes make a great dinner party starter or special lunch. If you’re planning a full Pancake Day menu why not include these as part of your feast? Savoury crepes are a real winner and if you haven’t got brie you could also try the recipe with something like goat’s cheese or feta.

    Ingredients

    • For the Crepes
    • 125g (4oz) plain flour
    • Pinch salt
    • 2 large eggs
    • 300ml (1/2 pint) milk
    • 15g (1/2 oz) butter, melted
    • Oil for cooking
    • For the filling
    • 3/4 cup of mushrooms, chopped
    • 1tbsp crushed garlic
    • A few thyme leaves
    • 1/2 cup cream or crème fraîche
    • 1/2 cup brie, diced
    • To serve
    • Watercress

    Method

    • Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and a little milk. Beat until a smooth paste is formed then add the remaining milk and butter, leave to stand 30 mins.

    • Heat a little oil in a 15cm (6 in) omelette pan, pour in 2tbsp of batter and tilt to coat the bottom evenly. Cook over a high heat until lightly brown underneath. Turn the crepe with a palette knife and cook the other side for 30 secs. Remove from the pan onto a tray and cover to keep warm then continue to make crepes until all the batter is used.

    • Fry the mushrooms and garlic then add thyme leaves, cream or crème fraîche and diced brie.

    • Fill the crepes with this mixture, garnish with sprigs of thyme and serve with watercress.
