Cheesy Broccoli Crepes Recipe


These tender crepes are filled with a rich, creamy broccoli and cheese mixture and topped with bubbly melted cheese.

The amount of garlic in this recipe may seem like a lot, but boiled garlic has a very mild flavour. Some chopped, cooked chicken would be a delicious addition to the filling.

Serves 4 (about 2 crepes each).

We use a 20ml tablespoon and 250ml measuring cup for all of our recipes.

Crepes
You will need about 8 crepes. We used this crepe recipe.

Filling
5-6 medium cloves garlic
300g broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)
120g cream cheese, softened
88g (1 cup) Parmesan cheese, grated
50g (2 1/2 tablespoons) mayonnaise
2 tablespoons (40ml) thickened cream (35 percent fat)
3 teaspoons (15ml) lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Topping
150g (1 1/2 cups) grated tasty cheddar cheese
84ml (1/3 cup) cream

Peel and halve garlic cloves. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add broccoli and garlic and boil until broccoli is just tender. Drain broccoli and garlic and set aside to cool. © exclusivelyfood.com.au

Combine cream cheese, Parmesan, mayonnaise, cream, lemon juice, boiled garlic, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Use a fork to mash the ingredients together to form a paste. Add roughly chopped cooked broccoli and stir gently until combined.

Divide broccoli filling between crepes and roll up. Place crepes seam side down in a baking dish. Sprinkle with grated tasty cheese and drizzle with cream. Bake at 210 degrees Celsius (190 degrees Celsius fan-forced) until cheese is bubbly and golden. We serve our crepes with salad.

IS it possible for me to prepare the crepes a day ahead or at least 1/2 a day ahead?

These crepes should be suitable to prepare up to a day in advance. Store them, tightly covered, in the refrigerator until ready to bake.

It should be fine to just omit the mayonnaise from this recipe.

Yum, I'm so glad I found this site! I'm going to try this recipe. I think it could work well fresh asparagus, or mushrooms, too.
