We've made these delicious crepes for dinner at least 4 times now, so it's time they are properly recorded. A perfect light summer dinner with a green salad on the side, these crepes cook up quickly with ingredients that are easy to have on hand. One of my favorite vegetarian meals. 

Crepes:
3 large eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1.5-3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Filling:
1 tsp. olive oil
16 oz. mushrooms, sliced
1 sweet or yellow onion, chopped roughly
1/4 c. sweet Marsala wine or other white wine
thyme, salt, and pepper to taste
Swiss cheese, sliced or shredded

Sauce:
apricot jam + spicy brown mustard

For the crepes:
In a medium bowl, lightly whisk the eggs. Then whisk in all of the remaining ingredients. Cover bowl and chill overnight (or 15-30min at room temp).
Set the batter out to come to room temperature for an hour before cooking. Preheat a large 10" skillet over medium-high heat. Add a small pat of butter and use a paper towel to quickly spread the butter around the pan. Add 1/4 cup of batter and tilt the pan so that the batter spreads into a circle. Cook each side for 1 - 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Unused crepes can easily be stored wrapped in the fridge for a couple of days, or frozen for several months.

For the filling:
Heat the oil in a pan without nonstick coating. Add onions, season with salt, and cook until softened. Add mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms have shrunk and begun to turn golden. De-glaze pan with the wine and add seasoning.<br />

Makes 20 or so crepes. The recipe halves well.
