Cooking “au gratin” means baking an ingredient with a topping of grated cheese to create a golden brown crusty top. It is a French culinary technique that is quick and easy to prepare, and it is delicious! Today, I am making one of my favorite everyday gratin recipes: eggplant gratin, by Jean-François Mallet. This is an extremely easy recipe, and I always get compliments on how delicious it tastes!
This recipe is from the French cookbook Simplissime by Jean-François Mallet, one of my favorite cookbooks. It is now available in English under the name Simple if you are interested in getting it.
