Asparagus & Ham Crêpes

Photo by:

Fresh asparagus heralds springtime and makes a delectable entrée or first course encased in crêpes. Omit the ham for a vegetarian dish or to serve as a vegetable accompaniment to grilled salmon, skewered jumbo shrimp, or baked trout. These crêpes may be assembled in advance and refrigerated for last-minute baking.

Yield: Makes 8 crêpes; serves 4

INGREDIENTS
  • Eight 6- or 7-inch garbanzo flour or savory crêpes
  • 1 large sweet white or red onion, chopped
  • 1½ pounds asparagus spears, cut into 1-inch diagonal lengths
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup (6 ounces) ricotta cheese or natural cream cheese at room temperature
  • ½ cup (2 ounces) shredded Gruyère or Emmenthal cheese
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh tarragon or dill, or ½ teaspoon dried tarragon or dill
  • 2 ounces honey-baked ham or Black Forest ham, julienned

Directions

Prepare the crêpes.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Steam the onion and asparagus in a covered container over boiling water until the asparagus is crisp-tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. In a medium bowl, beat the egg and mix in the cheeses, garlic, parsley, tarragon or dill, ham, and steamed vegetables.

Spoon ½ cup of the filling in a ribbon down the center of each crêpe and roll to enclose. Arrange in a greased 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until heated through. Serve at once.
