Assemble crepes: Lay first crepe on a flat working surface. Spread one half of the crepe with 2 slices of corned beef. Sprinkle with ¼ cup of swiss cheese. Top with #188; cup of sauerkraut. Fold over the other half of crepe to form a half-moon shape. Repeat with remaining crepes.
Grill crepes. Heat 1 tbsp of butter or margarine in a medium skillet over medium low heat until melted. Using a spatula, place 2 crepes in skillet and grill both sides until golden brown and the cheese has melted. Repeat with remaining crepes.
