Food Guru's Savory Crepes, recipe in the Bakery Chapter



Cook Beef:
Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. 
Add chopped onions and garlic.
Cook this for one minute and add one pound of ground beef, a little salt, pepper and a pinch of oregano. 
Cook this until nicely browned.

Cheese Filling:
While the beef is cooking, place ricotta cheese in a bowl 
add an egg, mozzarella, parmesan, salt and pepper and fresh basil chiffonade, mix.

To assemble: 
Place a crepe on the counter and top it with some of the ricotta filling
Top with some of the beef and fresh basil, roll up the crepe. 
Place rolled crepe in a casserole dish and repeat the process until the dish is full or all filling has been used. 
Top the crepes with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Bake in a 400-degree oven until the cheese melts and turns golden brown. (about 15-minutes)
Plate the crepes and garnish with kalamata olives, fresh basil, parmesan cheese

* I like to shave the parmesan cheese over the crepes, it looks cooler than using grated or shredded

*You could use italian pork sausage instead of ground beef
* see FG's Italian Sausage recipe in the Meat Chapter
