Throw Together Gratin
Prep time 5 mins, cook time 20 mins.
Just about anything tastes good in a gratin! The topping of cheese and breadcrumbs gives a tasty crunch and jazzes up what is actually, a very quick and easy recipe.
Sauce – use up any leftover sauce from a previous meal e.g. pasta sauce, carbonara, coq au vin etc. Include any vegetables that are in the sauce e.g. mushrooms, onions, chopped carrots, herbs etc.
Vegetables – any cooked vegetables of your choice.
To assemble, pour cooked vegetables into a casserole dish and cover with the sauce. Mix well, cover with grated cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake at 180°C/Gas Mark 4 until the sauce is bubbling and the topping is golden, about 20 minutes. If the breadcrumbs start to burn, cover with foil or casserole lid.
Serve as a side dish or on its own as a light meal.
