For the batter:

Ingredients

1 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons salted butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon table salt

Instructions

Put the batter ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth. Let stand at least 30 minutes (up to 8 hours).

For the filling:

Ingredients

3 tablespoons salted butter
10 ounces sliced button mushrooms
2 tablespoons minced shallots
1-1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
10 ounces fresh baby spinach
2 ounces Gruyère or cheddar cheese, grated
Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

Make the filling: In a skillet over high heat, melt butter and sauté mushrooms until golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Turn heat down to medium, add shallots, and cook 1 minute. Sprinkle flour evenly over vegetables and stir until coated. Add broth, stirring mixture until thickened. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

Make the crêpes: Mist a crêpe pan with no-stick spray; warm over medium heat. For each crêpe, pour in ¼ cup batter, instantly swirling around pan to spread evenly to the edges in a thin film. Cook quickly until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes, then turn and brown other side, about 1 more minute. Pile cooked crêpes on top of one another, keeping warm under an inverted plate or pot lid (if you must keep them warm a while, store in a low oven). Divide filling among crêpes, then fold around filling. Sprinkle with cheese.
