Ham and eggs crepes [moved from Quebec board]

Years ago we went to a small restaurant in Montreal for breakfast and had ham and egg crepes. If I remember correctly the crepes were flipped then ham added and then a raw egg, right on the crepe maker. It was so delicious I would like to be able to make it at home, but I don't remember if I am missing something important. Can anyone help me out?

    Cheese would be nice.

    Were the eggs completely raw, or just runny? I've had crepes like this at a tiny little resto just down the block from Fairmount Bagel, but the eggs weren't completely raw. And there was nice, melted fontina along with the smoked ham. Delicious crepe!

      They were raw, cracked right onto the crepe.

        A restaurant in Toronto also does this. The raw egg is cracked onto the crepe first as the crepe sits on the maker and the egg allowed to sit for a minute by itself to set. Then the other toppings (I love spinach, ham and cheese) are added and allowed to heat through.

        Delicious
