  • Assemble
    Preheat your oven to 175 F degrees.
    Heat the non-stick pan on medium or low heat. When the pan becomes hot, place the crepe on it and pour 1/4 cup of grated cheese. Keep the ham over one side of the crepe and let it melt for one minute. Fold the one side of crepe without making a half-circle of ham. Then again fold and make a quarter circle. Keep it filled with crepe over the platter in the warm oven. Continue until the whole of the crepes has been fulfilled.
