Gratin is originated from French cooking and means dish covered in breadcrumbs, grated cheese, egg or butter and then browned in an oven. Gratin generally prepared in a shallow dish and traditionally served in its baking dish. The beauty of this dish is you can make it beforehand as gratin freezes well. Just defrost when you need, top with cheese and/or breadcrumbs, and bake.
