    1. Crepes: Stir in a bowl flour, milk, eggs and salt to a thin batter.

    5. Add the stock, eggs and half of the parmesan. Add the thawed spinach and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
    6. Grease a casserole dish then spread some filling on the first crepe. Roll the crepe up and place in the casserole dish. Do with same with the remaining crepes.
    7. Stir together the egg yolks, cream and the rest of the parmesan then pour over the crepes.
    8. Place into the oven and bake for 25 minutes at 225 degrees C.

    Being in the US I had some issues finding the creme fresh. I made some by adding 1 TBL of buttermilk to 1 cup of heavy cream left it sitting in the oven all day. These were yummy and it was fun. My meat loving husband thought they were great.  -  18 Mar 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
