Ingredients
  • For the Crêpes: 
  • 250g of Plain Flour
  • 3 free range Eggs
  • 500 ml of Milk
  • 2 tbsp of Oil

Steps

. The first step here is to make the batter for the Crepes. Then to let it rest for at least half an hour. 

. Second is to prepare the Mushroom, clean if needs be and chop them.

. Chop the peeled Shallot and the Garlic.

. Sauter the Mushrooms, Shallots and Garlic together in salted Butter. Add Herbs and seasoning.

. Prepare the Pan to poached the Duck Egg and the frying Pan for the Pancakes.

. While you are doing the Pancakes, prepare the Spinach which only takes minutes to steam in a little Water (you can flavour the Water with Veg Stock). Add a little pinch of Nutmeg to the Spinach. 

.Then it is just a building up upon the plates: Pancake first then the filling, Mushrooms, Spinach (drained), and Egg. To add Lardons is optional but if you do so cook them with the Mushrooms initially.
