5. Place a large spoonful crab mixture on each crepe and roll; place seam side down in two buttered large rectangular glass baking dishes.

6. Spoon remaining crab mixture over crepes; sprinkle with grated cheese and dot with butter.

7. Bake uncovered in preheated 400F oven 20 minutes, until hot and bubbly.

8. This dish may be frozen or refrigerated before serving; if chilled, remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking.

5. Stir in cheese and cook until melted and well-blended; correct seasoning.
