Meanwhile, back in the kitchen

The pursuit for chard gratin continues…

The chard is blanched for a minute and then the excess water is squeezed out.

The bread crumbs are ready…needing only to be crushed

The chard is chopped and sauteed with a wee bit of garlic and finished with nutmeg, salt, pepper, a healthy sprinkling of flour and milk is slowly worked into the mix.  I may have made this a bit too watery.

The chard is transferred to a pan…

And topped with the breadcrumbs.  I may have overtoasted my bread … we’ll see…

Into the oven for a slow cook so it doesn’t bubble up.

Stay tuned…
