Baked Egg Crepes
Inspired by a recipe by Giada De Laurentis
Makes 6 8-inch crepes
3 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups whole milk ricotta
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan or Pecorino cheese
Unsalted butter for frying pan, baking dish and for dotting crepes, about 3 Tablespoons
1/2 cup marinara sauce
Beat the eggs, milk and salt and pepper in a bowl. Heat an 8" nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, and brush skillet with butter.
Pour about 3 Tablespoons of the egg mixture into the pan, quickly swirling to coat the bottom. Cook until the egg crepe is set, about 1 minute. Turn crepe with small spatula or your fingers, and continue to cook for about 30 seconds. Slide cooked crepe onto plate. Continue making and stacking crepes one at a time until the egg mixture is used, adding butter to pan as necessary.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a baking dish large enough to hold all of the crepes without them being squashed together. Mix grated cheese and salt and pepper to taste into ricotta. Arrange 1 egg crepe on work surface. Place 1/4 cup ricotta mixture in the center of the crepe. Roll up the crepe and place, seam side down, in baking dish. Repeat with the remaining crepes and cheese. Dot surface with butter and cover with foil. Bake for about 15 minutes until heated through.
Before serving, remove foil, and spoon some marinara sauce over crepes. Sprinkle with additional grated cheese if you like. Serve with a green salad and crusty bread.
