Galettes - frenche crepes with ham and cheese


Today I made homemade version of galettes - crepes, of French origin, recognizable by the way they are folded. This recipe uses the simple whole wheat flour instead of the original French buckwheat flour. The stuffing with cheese and ham, with a touch of fresh leeks, is a perfect combination for a delicious and easy lunch.
