Author Notes

I really enjoy making crepes-it was a tradition with my best friend and I: every weekend morning, we'd gather up ingredients in our apartment and see what I could come up with. Turkey, cheese, fruit, veggies, chocolate, plain, brown sugar...the possibilities are endless. Here, I decided to make a torte out of our weekend favorite. —Mariya

What You'll Need
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 8 ounces mushrooms-sliced (button, shitake, portabella, etc)
  • 1/4 cup onions-small dice
  • 1/4 pound Gruyere cheese-sliced
  • 1/4 pound fresh Asiago cheese-sliced
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan-shreaded
  • cooking spray
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  1. Whisk egg, milk, and water.
  2. Add flour and salt (to taste) to egg mixture; whisk to smooth, milky consistency (with no clumps; if needed, add more flour or liquid to reach correct consistency).
  3. In a sautee pan, sweat onions; add mushrooms and cook to al dente; season well; reserve.
  4. Spray a small sautee pan with cooking spray; depending on your pan size, ladle crepe batter into pan in 1/4 - 1/2 cup-full increments; tilt the pan in a circular motion so the batter coats the pan evenly. Cook to golden, then flip crepe and cook other side; continue (while spraying the pan before each new crepe).
  5. Assemble: in a baking dish, lay down one crepe, top with mushrooms, top with 2 slices of Gruyere, top with 1 slice of Asiago, repeat until all crepes are used.
  6. Top last crepe with grated Parmesan.
  7. Bake in a 400F oven until top layer and Parmesan are crisp (aprox 6-9 min).
