Ingredients

  • 2 tbs plain flour
  • 1/4 cup (60g) whole-egg mayonnaise
  • 300g sliced smoked ham
  • 300g tasty cheddar, cut into sixteen 1cm x 8cm pieces
  • Plain flour, extra, to dust
  • 4 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs, lightly whisked
  • 3 cups (225g) panko breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil, to deep-fry

Crepes

  • 1 1/2 cups (225g) plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg yolk
  • 2 1/3 cups (580ml) milk
  • 50g butter, melted, cooled

Method

STEP 1

To make the crepes, combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Stir in egg and egg yolk. Gradually whisk in the milk until the batter is smooth. Add the melted butter and whisk to combine.

STEP 2

Spray an 18cm (base measurement) frying pan with olive oil spray and heat over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup (60ml) of the batter into the pan, swirling to coat the base. Cook for 1-2 mins or until firm. Turn and cook for a further 1 min or until the crepe is light golden (make sure crepes don’t overbrown or become crispy). Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter to make 16 crepes.

STEP 3

Place the flour and 2 tbs water in a bowl and whisk until a thick paste forms. Place 1 crepe on a clean work surface. Spread 1 tsp mayonnaise on the bottom third of the crepe. Top with some ham and 1 piece of cheese. Fold bottom edge of the crepe over the filling and fold the 2 sides in towards the centre. Roll up tightly to enclose filling, then brush the edge with a little flour paste and press to seal. Repeat with the remaining crepes, mayonnaise, ham, cheese and flour paste.

STEP 4

Place extra flour in a shallow bowl. Coat the crepe rolls lightly in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, then in breadcrumbs and roll to coat. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining crepe rolls, extra flour, egg and breadcrumbs.

STEP 5

Pour enough oil into a large saucepan or wok to reach 5cm up the side. Heat to 170°C over medium heat (when oil is ready, a cube of bread turns golden brown in 15 secs). Cook the crepe rolls, in 2 batches, for 3-4 mins or until golden brown and crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.

Serve with green sriracha or chilli sauce and watercress sprigs
