  1. Sift the flour into a bowl with a pinch of salt and make a well in the center. Put the egg and a little of the milk in the well. Stir the egg mixture, adding a little of both the flour and the milk as you go. When it's all incorporated, beat with an electric mixer to remove any lumps. Transfer to the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Place the bacon and a drizzle of olive oil in a hot frying pan and cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until golden. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Heat a crępe pan or small frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add a tiny amount of oil, then swirl it around the pan and pour the excess into a heatproof cup. Add 2 tablespoons of batter to the pan and swirl so it covers the bottom. Loosen the edges of the crępe with a spatula or blunt knife and cook for 1 minute or until golden. Flip the crępe and cook the other side for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until set. Slide the crępe onto a warm plate and repeat.
  4. Spoon half the bacon onto one half of a crępe and top with half the cheese. Fold the crępe over and cook for a minute or so, turning once, until the cheese begins to melt, then slide the crępe onto a plate. Fill and cook a second crępe in the same manner. Serve immediately.
