Baked Fennel created by karenury

This is a light, tasty way to cook fennel. It is tender, with a crunchy outer texture and just a hint of the fennel flavor. This is a great vegetable side dish with grilled or roasted meats.

    This is divine! I suspect simmering in the milk keeps the fennel nice and white and makes it extra tender. For those who love the taste of fennel this is a must- try!!!

    I had never had fennel before tonight and when I saw some at the grocery store yesterday I decided it was time to try it. Based on the reviews I choose your recipe and am so glad that I did. Excellent, it is a keeper and will cerainly become part of my regular menu items. Thanks for sharing.

    I don't know what simmering in milk does but this is fabulous! My whole family loved this. I put it in a 3qt bowl baking dish to bake but next time will use my 9x13" pan to spread out those breadcrumbs more. Thanks for a new veggie dish! ETA: 3/7/08 This has become my family's favorite way of having fennel. Thank you!!
