Fennel Gratin (Finocchi al gratin) Incredibly rich cheesy, fantastic Earthy flavor of the roasted Fennel. Sweet and herbal with the nutmeg accented creamy cheese sauce. A bit crunchy and soft and delicious. Perfect side dish for fish - or french bread!
Fennel is my new favorite veg. I never used to know what to do with fennel, but these days, I can't get enough of it Baked fennel with olive oil, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, bread crumbs and fresh thyme.
This rich, cheesy, nutty fennel gratin is peak comfort food. Like seriously we want to cuddle it in a fuzzy blanket or something. A little crunchy, a little soft; too soon to tell but this might be the only side dish you cook for the rest of your life.
