Crepes are great to make ahead and stuff with your favourite fillings - try one of the savoury flavours: Chicken and Garlic or Garlic Shrimp!
In a bowl, combine flour and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and melted butter. Whisk egg mixture into flour mixture until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Strain mixture into a clean bowl.
Heat small non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Brush pan with some oil. Pour approximately 1/4 cup (50 mL) batter into centre of pan, swirling pan to coat. Cook for about 1 minute or until bottom is a light golden colour. Flip and cook for 30 seconds. Transfer to plate. Repeat with remaining batter. (Make-ahead: Stack crepes between waxed paper, wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)
Chicken and Garlic Filling
In a skillet, melt 3 tbsp (45 mL) of the butter over medium high heat with garlic and thyme. Add chicken and cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until heated through. Stir in cream cheese until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and divide the chicken mixture into centre of each crepe and fold over. Place in shallow casserole dish, overlapping slightly. Melt remaining 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter and drizzle over stuffed crepes. Place in preheated 350 F (180 C) oven for about 10 minutes or until warmed through. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
