1 pound , backfin crab meat
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound mushrooms, thinly sliced
8 thin slices of country ham or proscuitto ham
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
dash of hot sauce, if desired
dash of salt
wine Sauce:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sherry
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
basic Crepes:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
3 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
vegetable oil


1. Saute crab and mushrooms in melted butter about 2 minutes, add parsley and seasonings and remove from heat.
2. Place 1 slice of ham on crepe.
3. Top each crepe with crabmeat mixture, about 1/4 cup. You may need to adjust to make sure you have filling for 8-10 crepes.
4. Roll up and place seam side down in a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
5. Spoon the Wine Sauce (recipe below) over the crepes and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
6. Garnish with parsley if desired.

Wine Sauce:
1. Melt butter in skillet over low heat. Add flour, stirring until smooth.
2. Gradually add milk and sherry cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
3. Pour over crepes and bake as instructed.

Basic Crepes:
1. Combine flour, salt and milk mix well. Add the eggs and butter beat until smooth.
2. Refrigerate batter at least 2 hours. (This allows flour particles to swell and soften so the crepes will be light in texture.)
3. Brush bottom of a 6 or 8 inch crepe pan or heavy skillet with oil place the pan over medium heat until just hot, not smoking.
4. Pour 2 to 3 tablespoons batter into pan quickly tilt pan in all directions so batter covers pan in a thin film. Cook about 1 minute or until lightly browned. Lift edges of crepe to
test for doneness. Crepe is ready for flipping when it can be shaken loose from pan. Flip crepe and cook about 30 seconds on other side. (This side is rarely more than spotty
brown and is the side on which the filling is placed.)
5. Place crepes on a towel to cool. Stack between layers of waxed paper to prevent sticking. Repeat until all batter is used.

A special crepe pan is not necessary. A 6 or 8 inch skillet with low, sloping sides works nicely. Brush the pan with oil periodically to prevent crepes from sticking. Skillets with
nonstick surfaces usually don't need to be greased. When you're making crepes, make plenty because they keep well. After the crepes cool, stack them between waxed paper
and sandwich the stack between two paper plates. Wrap the entire package - plates and all - in aluminum foil, or slip it into a freezer bag. In the refrigerator, crepes can be
stored for 2 to 3 days in the freezer - up to 4 months.
