Savory Crepes with Bacon and Mushroom White Sauce
These savory crepes use rice flour for both the crepe batter and the sauce. The easy-to-make white sauce is scrumptious and creamy. The crepes are moist and very filling.
Add rice flour into the milk and egg mixture to make the batter. Adjust the amount of milk to achieve the desired thickness of the crepes. If the batter is too dense, the crepes will be too thick.
All rice flour is naturally gluten-free. Make this dish completely gluten-free by using gluten-free substitutes for other ingredients as needed.

Preheat the oven to 400°F (204°C).
