Most gratin recipes call for a topping of bread crumbs/panko but do you have a favourite alternative? (I know crackers are used sometimes but I prefer to avoid anything pre-processed.) This would be for a saucy cauliflower/cheese gratin.
This classic gratin dish was developed by Akhtar Nawab and does wonders without overloading on cream or cheese. It makes for a hearty side to go with a flavorful autumnal-spiced protein such as turkey or roasted chicken.
