Baked Cheese Crepes

Baked Cheese Crepes is one of my go-to dinners. I always seem to have all the ingredients on hand. And my family loves it. Yes, even my husband! Which is always exciting for me =)

I saw this prepared on Everyday Italian a couple of years ago. Give it a try sometime!

Whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.

Heat a 6-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat.

Brush the skillet with some butter. (Or just use your hands like I did--I need a new brush!)

Working quickly, pour 3 tablespoons of the egg mixture into the pan, swirling to coat the bottom of the pan evenly.

Cover and cook until the egg crepe is just set, about 1 minute.

Invert the skillet over a plate, and allow the egg crepe to drop onto the plate.


Repeat to make 10 crepes total, brushing the skillet with melted butter as needed and stacking crepes on the plate.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Butter a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish.
Arrange 1 egg crepe on a work surface.
Place some of the fontina and mozzarella (I just use mozzarella) cheese in the center of the egg crepe, then sprinkle with some basil.
(Italian Seasoning works well, too, if you don't have fresh basil)

Roll up the crepe. Place the filled crepe in the prepared baking dish, seam side down.

Repeat with the remaining egg crepes, cheese, and basil. Spoon the marinara sauce over the crepes. (I have yet to make the homemade marinara that goes with the recipe. Store bought tastes great, too!)

Sprinkle with the Parmesan...

...and dot with 2 tablespoons of butter.

Bake until the cheese melts and the top is golden, about 15 minutes.

I usually serve green beans and breadsticks with these.
It's one of my favorite comfort meals!
