  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) black pepper

Preparation
  • Make crepes:
  • In a bowl, whisk together egg, milk, butter and parsley until well combined.
  • Add flour, salt and pepper and whisk until smooth.
  • Heat a 6 inch to 8 inch crepe pan over moderately high heat until hot.
  • Brush pan with oil and heat until hot but not smoking.
  • Remove pan from heat.
  • Stir batter and half-fill a 1/4 cup (60 ml) measure with it.
  • Pour batter into pan, tilting and rotating pan quickly to cover bottom with a thin layer of batter, and return any excess to bowl.
  • Return pan to heat and loosen edge of crepe with spatula.
  • Cook crepe until under side is lightly browned.
  • Turn and lightly brown on other side; transfer to warm plate.
  • Repeat process and use the remaining batter to make the rest of the crepes, brushing pan with oil each time.
  • Make filling:
  • In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp and remove from skillet and reserve; save fat in pan.
  • Saute mushrooms in in pan, adding one tbsp of butter, and cook over moderate heat, stirring until the liquid the mushrooms release has evaporated a bit (five minutes or so).
  • Remove from skillet.
  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees (90 C.).
  • In skillet, melt remaining butter over moderate-high heat and whisk in flour.
  • Whisk and cook roux (flour-butter mixture) for three minutes.
  • Add milk gradually, whisking constantly, and cook five minutes until thickened and smooth.
  • Add mushrooms, cream, bacon, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste and simmer ten minutes, or until thick; cool slightly.
  • Fill crepes with about a quarter to a half cup of filling and fold up crepe.
  • Transfer filled crepes to oven-proof dish and sprinkle with a bit of cheese, if you like, and heat in oven before serving.
