Ingredients
  Gruyere cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs), shredded
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  All pupose flour 2 Tablespoon
  Chicken stock 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Skim milk/Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Crepes 2 (either store bought or homemade)
  Dijon mustard 2 Teaspoon
  Deli ham 4 Small, sliced
  Scallions 2 Teaspoon, sliced
  Cooking spray 2 Dash
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease the baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.

MAKING
2. In a saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the flour and cook together, stirring vigorously to make a paste.
3. Using a whisk, stir in the chicken stock and milk. Let it thicken for about 1-2 minutes. (Make sure it doesn’t get too thick like a porridge. If it does, thin it out with more milk)
4. Turn off the heat and add in your Gruyere cheese. Season with salt if needed.
5. To assemble the crepes, place them on lightly greased baking sheets. Lightly spread with mustard on the bottom left quarter of each crepe.
6. Add two or three slices of deli ham, then top with a tablespoon of cheese sauce.
7. Fold the crepes in half, over the filling, then fold again into quarters, to make a triangular shape. Spoon another tablespoon of sauce on the tops of each of the folded crepes and spread it around a bit.
8. Bake for 5 minutes.
9. Turn on the broiler and broil for 2-3 minutes, or until the topping is bubbly and lightly browned.

SERVING
10. Garnish with sliced scallions or any fresh herbs of your choice. And serve it hot with fresh vegetable salad.
