In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and dessert blend with Silicone Spatula until fully combined. Pour cream into base Power Chef™ with Whip Accessory.

Spinach Crepes with Creamy Cheese Filling

Spinach Crepes with Creamy Cheese Filling

Makes 10 crepes 
2 eggs
1⅓ cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tbsp. melted butter
¼ tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients in the base of your Power Chef™ with Whip Accessory attached. Replace cover and turn handle to mix the ingredients, until just combined; store in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to two days.
Heat a crepe pan on medium-high heat for several minutes.  The crepe pan is hot enough when a drop of cold water sizzles when splashed on the surface of the pan.
Lightly spray the pan with cooking spray.  Ladle a small amount of batter, about ¼ cup, onto the surface of the pan, swirling the pan to achieve an even layer.  After 30 seconds, gently peel the sides of the crepe away from the surface of the crepe pan using a Silicone Spatula.  Once the bottom side has cooked through and has begun to brown slightly, flip the crepe over using the spatula.  Cook for an additional 30 seconds and then set aside onto wax paper, placing individual sheets between the crpes to prevent them from sticking together. Repeat this process, spraying the pan with cooking spray each time.
Cheese Filling
Serves 5
1 crepe batter recipe, yielding 10 crepes
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 small yellow onion
2 garlic cloves, peeled
10 oz./283g package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
14 oz./397g ricotta cheese
8 oz./227g Gruyère cheese, shredded, plus more for topping
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
salt and pepper, to taste
Prepare crêpes according to crêpe recipe and set aside.

Place cooked onions and garlic in an 8¾-cup/2.1 L Wonderlier® bowl; add the spinach, the cheeses, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.  Mix to combine.
Add three tablespoons of the filling to the center of each crepe.  Roll up each crepe and place in a shallow microwave safe baking pan folded side down.  Top with additional Gruyère cheese.  Microwave on High power five minutes or until the cheese is melted and the crêpe filling has warmed through.  Serve immediately.
