Ingredients

  • 4 crepes
  • 1/2 cup onions finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

To Make the Filling

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium pot. On medium temperature sautee onions, parsley, salt and pepper over butter until onions are cooked (about 7-10 minutes).

To Fill the Crepes

  • Spread one quarter of the filling evenly over a crepe, leaving the outer edge uncovered.
  • Slightly fold in the bottom and top edges of the crepe.
  • Roll the crepe from one side to the other.

To Fry the Crepes

  • Fill a frying pan with enough oil to fry the crepes rolls and bring to medium high heat.
  • Scramble the egg in a shallow bowl.
  • Place the breadcrumbs in a second shallow bowl.
  • Dip the rolled crepe in the egg until lightly coated all around.
  • Roll in the breadcrumbs.
  • Fry the crepe until golden brown on the outside (1-2 minutes per side).
