  1. I made this as part of the Best of 2008 Cookbook tag game. It is a little bit out of my comfort zone but I liked it. I made it the day before serving and microwaved it to reheat. I made it with non-fat milk.
  2. Made for the Aug Seafood Photo Challenge, I chose this recipe in an effort to copycat a very pricey fish gratin we esp like, but is sold only in fish markets here in Iceland. I made a full recipe as written using a generous amt of lemon pepper + a mix of gouda, mozzarella & cheddar cheeses as I had the right amt of them on hand. This is very easy-to-fix & cooking time + yield are spot-on. Fresh from the oven, the sauce is thin but a short rest time allows a creamy texture to develop. DH & I both felt this was excellent & as good as what we can buy. Thx for sharing this great recipe w/us. ~ *Edited to Add* ~ This was even better reheated the 2nd dy! :-)
  3. My boyfriend is from Newfoundland, I surprised him with this dish for lunch and he loved it! I sprinkled some breadcrumbs on top for extra crispiness.
