Preparation

Make the crepes with 2 eggs, 150g of flour, 250 ml milk and a pinch of salt. Clean and slice the mushrooms, then sauté in a pan for a few minutes, season with salt and add a little chopped parsley. Make a béchamel sauce with 900 ml of milk, 50g of butter and 50g of flour, salt and pepper. When everything is ready, place three tablespoons of béchamel in the centre of each crepe, then a spoonful of mushrooms, add another spoonful of sauce and roll up the crepe. Lay them next to each other in a baking tray and, when the tray is full, pour béchamel over the surface and finish with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Put them the oven under the grill for a few minutes until it the surface becomes crispy. Serve with a few mushrooms scattered over the top and to one side on the plate.

Tips
The crepes with mushrooms can be prepared in advance and reheated before serving, or you can freeze them in a suitable container. In addition, when making the crepe batter, if you have trouble digesting milk you can replace it with water. As for the quantities, bear in mind that with a half-litre of milk you will get about 30 crepes with a diameter of about 15 cm.
Trivia
Crepes are a very old dish dating back to the Middle Ages, and are a symbol of French cuisine traditionally served at Candlemas: when they were flipped over in the pan it was customary to make a wish.
