  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat. When sausage is half cooked through, drain off most of the fat. Add onion, red pepper, mushrooms and cilantro; cook until vegetables are tender and sausage is browned. Remove sausage and vegetables from pan, leaving a slight coating of oil.
  2. Whisk together 5 eggs, egg whites, 1/4 cup milk and cheese. Return skillet to medium-high heat and pour in egg mixture. Cook, stirring occasionally, until eggs are set. Remove from heat but keep warm.
  3. In a double boiler, over medium heat, combine egg yolks, butter and lemon juice. Whisk continuously (watch the heat or it will curdle). Remove from burner when butter has completely melted.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, egg and milk. Pour mixture through a fine sieve to eliminate lumps. Heat a non-stick crepe pan on medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray and pour about 1/3 cup of batter in the pan. Rotate the pan to spread a paper thin amount of batter around the pan. Flip when it starts to bubble and cook until golden on both sides. Repeat until all batter is used.
  5. To assemble: Place one crepe on a plate, spoon eggs and sausage mixture down the middle of the crepe from top to bottom (like a taco) and fold over in a half circle. Top with Hollandaise sauce and sprinkle with a little paprika. Serve with a scoop of salsa on the side.

Taste is sensational (but be prepared to spend some time.) They were sticky, even on the wax paper! But, truly the best crepes I have ever tasted. (By the way, we used turkey sausage for a healthier dish.)

I changed a few things. I cheated and prepared a packet of hollandaise sauce. For the egg mixture, I scrambled 5 eggs and 1/4 c. milk - omitting the egg whites and cheese. I mixed those with the sausage - vegie mixture along with a can of sliced black olives . When making the crepes, I only used 2-3 T. of batter per crepe. I put the stuffed crepes, seam side down, in a 9x13 pan, covered them with the hollandaise sauce and shredded mexican cheese (next time I may sprinkle the cheese on the inside of the stuffed crepes). I baked them at 350 for about 10 minutes - until the cheese was melted - and served with salsa. Time consuming, but worth it!! Thanks for the great recipe idea!

looks great, one question. Is line #3 the hollandaise sauce?

Wow.. these are delicious! I used homemade turkey sausage and a hollandaise mix and used skim milk and butter flavored powder in it. This isn't difficult. You could make the fillings ahead of time and then reheat is and make crepes fresh when you are ready to eat. I will make this again... for certain

I omitted the hollandaise due to calorie counting, and the recipe was still delicious. My kids each ate a large crepe for dinner without complaining, and hubby asked for a repeat. Cilantro brightens all the other flavours, which are already a great combo.
