Author: Gaby Dalkin
Ingredients
For the Filling:
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 10 ounces Chanterelle mushrooms torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped thyme plus more for garnish
  • 1 garlic clove thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4 eggs fried
  • 1 cup shredded gruyere
For the Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Kosher salt
For the Crepes
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted, plus more for brushing
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Market greens for topping
Instructions
For the Filling
  1. In a large cast-iron skillet, melt the butter over moderately high heat. Add mushrooms, thyme, and garlic and saute about 15 minutes, until caramelized. Stir in parsley and season with salt and pepper.
For the Sauce
  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour until combined. Gradually whisk in the cream and simmer until thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Add in the nutmeg and mushroom filling. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until no floury taste remains, about 7 minutes. Keep warm.
For the Crepes
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk 4 eggs, milk, flour, melted butter, and kosher salt until smooth. Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat; brush with melted butter. Add one-fourth of the batter, swirling to coat the pan evenly. Cook until lightly browned on bottom, about 2 minutes. Using a spatula, flip crêpe; reduce heat to moderately low. Arrange one-fourth of the cheese and the mushroom mixture on crêpe, and cook for another minute or two. Transfer to a plate and top with a fried egg and a few baby market greens leaves. Garnish with thyme, salt, and pepper. Repeat as needed.
