Bake's Tips

The term 'gratin' refers to baked or grilled dishes with crusty tops, which often include breadcrumbs and cheese. Potatoes, vegetables in cheese sauce, pasta, fish and even fruits may be prepared in this way. For best results, make as many layers of ingredients as possible, seasoning each layer well as you proceed through the dish.

Gratins are best baked in shallow, ovenproof 'au gratin' dishes that fit easily under the grill. Because of the large surface area, there will be lots of crisp, savoury crust to enjoy.
