Fillet of Flounder Au Gratin

From "The American Woman's Cookbook", 1938-1977. The book I got this from is so old it has recipes for squirrel! But this fish recipe is completely delicious, and easy too. I serve this with pasta in butter/garlic sauce and boiled greenbeans.

This is a great recipe! I've used it on all kinds of white fish with great results. Only change is I use Panko crumbs. Just personal preference. Whole family loves the fish! Thanks

My husband and I loved this recipe! It was quick and easy to make - but most of all, it tasted great! I go to Weight Watchers, and I was happy that it was so low in WW points too! I'll definitely make this again.

I'm not certain if I followed the instructions correctly. I've never made a Gratin before. I had a bit more fish, so thought I had increased the sauce proportionally. But I think I made the sauce too thin. I would have also appreciated knowing how much breadcrumbs to use and how to use them. I will try this one more time, following the proportions listed in the recipe and will post the results.
