    Savory Stuffed Crêpes

    Makes 4 servings

    Ingredients

    8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced

    4 ounces fresh baby spinach

    1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme (optional)

    8 premade crêpes

    8 (1-ounce) slices lean turkey breast

    1 cup shredded low-fat Monterey Jack cheese

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350º F.

    2. Lightly coat a pan with cooking spray. Over medium heat, sauté mushrooms about 5 minutes until they release their liquid. Add spinach and sauté lightly 2 minutes until wilted. Season with thyme, if desired, and remove from heat.

    3. Place one crêpe on a clean counter. Add 1 slice of turkey, a sprinkle of cheese, and a spoonful of the mushroom and spinach mixture. Fold sides in to make a rectangular pillow shape and then roll over. Place crêpe, folded side down, in a baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray. Repeat until all crêpes are assembled. Top crêpes with remaining cheese.

    4. Bake 20 minutes, or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
