  10. Roll up crepes and place, seam side down, in 9″ glass baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses.

  11. Bake for 10–15 minutes or until cheeses melt. Serve immediately.

Crepes

Crepes are quite easy to make, and they help you turn leftovers into a fancy dish. For the best crepes, make sure the batter is very smooth. Let it stand for a few minutes before cooking. Also, quickly turn and twist the skillet as soon as the batter hits the hot surface so the crepes are thin and even.
