Preparation of the recipe for the ham and cheese crepes

  1. To start, sift and pour 80 g of flour into a bowl. Add 170 ml of milk, a little at a time, and in the meantime mix with a hand whisk.
  2. When creating a fluid batter, add 1 egg, 15 g of butter ( previously melted ) and a pinch of salt. Stir to obtain a lump-free mixture. Once done, let it rest for 30 minutes in the fridge, covering the container with cling film.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the béchamel . Melt 100 g of butter in a saucepan, then pour in 100 g of flour and stir constantly.
  4. Separately, heat 1 liter of milk and then add it (thinly) to the other mixture. In flavorful, to taste, with salt and nutmeg and continue cooking until everything becomes creamy and thick, taking on the right consistency. Put it aside momentarily to let it cool down.
  5. Take the batter from the fridge to make the ham crepes. Grease the bottom of a non-stick pan with a knob of butter and remove the excess fat with a sheet of kitchen paper.
  6. With a ladle, take a certain amount of dough at a time and pour it into the center of the pan. Use a dough spreader to spread it circularly, all over the bottom.
  7. When the underside appears cooked, turn the crepe over and cook the other side as well. Proceed like this, until the dough runs out. As they are cooked, stack them on a plate.
  8. Take a baking dish and cover the bottom with a little béchamel.
  9. Switch to the filling . Spread one crepe at a time on a cutting board. Spread a little béchamel on one half of the dough. Spread over some cheese ( diced ) and a slice of ham. Fold the other half of dough over this one ( obtaining a crescent ) and, then, fold again in half, until you obtain a sort of triangle. Stuff all the crepes in this way, placing them in the pan (without putting them too much one on top of the other).
  10. When you have finished, cover them with another thin layer of béchamel and sprinkle with flaked Grana Padano (or you can do it after cooking).
  11. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 ° C for about 20 minutes . Let it cool and serve.
