This this this! This recipe is fantastic. It came together so quickly and got such rave reviews that this will now be a go-to in my I-want-to-look-like-a-rockstar-but-I-don’t-want-to-have-to-work-too-hard arsenal. Yeahhhh. Because that is just the thing this time of year – it’s spring! We want to gather, we want to come out of hiding and have all the fun. Showers, picnics, BBQs, Bunco night, more showers (doesn’t like everyone get married in the spring? …although, I got married in December, so I guess that doesn’t work). But you know what I mean – we need recipes for company, we want them to fit the season, and we want them to be fabulous. Easy, and fabulous. And quick.

So with that in mind, I give you my new crepe. Voila. Comme ca.

So what did I do here ..I made a lovely, DELICIOUS cheesy sauce to start. Cheeeeese. So good. This is a basic cheese sauce – we start with a roux, then milk to make a bechamel. Then just a couple ingredients required for flavor, and 2 cuppers of cheese. I used white cheddar because 1) it is yummy, and 2) I wanted to keep the sauce white. Just seemed more elegant to me that way.

After we make the sauce, then we just add ham and peas to it. Peas scream spring don’t they? So including them was pretty obvious. And for ham, I went with deli ham. Whyyy???? You ask? ..well, because super skinny deli meat works here because of the super skinny crepes and it keeps the whole thing all delicate. It just works. Trust. ?

The deli meat I used, Castle Wood Reserve®, was a hit with my family. They loved the flavor. While I was using half the package in the recipe, they sat there munching on the rest of the package right then and there while I was cooking. Castle Wood Reserve® is a new-to-me line of deli meats. I found it in the deli section at Walmart, and they have no binders or MSG or such. So you can use it as almost an easy hack in a recipe like these crepes because it is deli meat, or put it right out there with cheeses, olives, and such for a charcuterie board.

Moving on, once our filling is ready, we roll it up enchilada-like in the crepes. Now, sometimes I make crepes, and I linked my recipe in the instructions below. But sometimes, oftentimes, I don’t have that time so I buy them. Yes, you can get them already made – I find them in the produce section. No shame, right?

Then we just bake our crepes, make a little Dijon cream sauce for topping and We. Are. Done. ..See? Totally easy. And really truly delicious.

So that’s it folks! An elegant but EASY Ham, Peas, and Cheese Crepes recipe, filled with ham, peas, and cheesy cheese. An impressive spring go-to for any occasion.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • pinch fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 ½ tsp Dijon mustard, divided
  • 2 cups shredded Vermont sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz cooked ham, chopped
  • 10 crepes, purchased or you can make your own
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp milk

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over medium-high heat. Add the flour and cook for a minute to make a roux. Whisking constantly, add the milk and cook a minute or so until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat. Add the salt, pepper, 1/2 tsp Dijon, and the cheese (don't worry about getting the cheese to melt). Taste for seasoning. Add the ham and peas.
  • Lay out a crepe. Spoon ~1/4 cup ham filling down the center. Roll up the crepe and place in a large bake dish. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  • Bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
  • Combine the sour cream, remaining 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, and milk, to make a sauce. Serve drizzled over the crepes. Yields: 5 servings.
