      Place the flour in a large bowl. Crack the eggs into the flour and whisk them in. Add the nutmeg and salt, then whisk in the milk. Strain the batter in a sieve to remove any lumps. Allow the batter to stand for 30 minutes at room temperature.

      Combine the ricotta, mozzarella and sheep’s milk cheese in a bowl. Add 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil and the salami and stir to combine.

      Preheat a nonstick crepe pan. Melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in the pan and allow it to brown. Pour browned butter into crepe batter.

    • 4

      Ladle a thin layer of batter to just cover the bottom of the hot pan. Turn down the heat as needed to avoid burning the crepe.

    • 5

      As the crepe sets (about 30 to 40 seconds), lift edges with an offset spatula or a butter knife to check color. When the bottom is golden-brown, flip the crepe with tongs or a spatula and cook on the other side for 20 seconds. Transfer to a plate. Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 until all the batter has been used.

    • 6

      Fill each crepe with 3 tablespoons of the cheese/salami filling. Gently fold, first in half then in half again (quarters). Arrange the crespelle, overlapping them slightly, on dish. Sprinkle with sliced salami and grated Cacio di Roma cheese.
