Everyday Eggplant Gratin

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!
