Roasted Fennel and Ricotta Gratins with Tarragon

A sprinkling of fresh breadcrumbs gives these easy individual gratins a crispy top. Serve them with steak, roasted chicken, or pork tenderloin.

Cooking Light APRIL 2005

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 gratin)

Ingredients

  • 1 (1 1/2-ounce) slice hearty white bread (such as Pepperidge Farm)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450°.

Arrange fennel on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bake at 450° for 40 minutes or until fennel is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

Reduce oven temperature to 375°.

Combine fennel, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the Homemade Ricotta Cheese, tossing well. Divide mixture evenly among 6 (4-ounce) gratin dishes or ramekins coated with cooking spray.

Place bread in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs measure 3/4 cup. Combine breadcrumbs, tarragon, and pepper, tossing well. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons breadcrumb mixture over each gratin dish. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until golden.
