swiss chard and barley gratin

No, I have not made this yet, but it looked really good. I'm planning on it sometime next week.

Maybe someone here will get around to it before me and post what they did.

1. Sounds good. I love cole crops. And anything with cheese, 1/2 & 1/2 and a grain or pasta is good

in my book! I'll try this.

2. Ah, a cooking person after my own heart!

Let me know how it goes. I have been trying to get into different grains than I usually eat. I like grains, but I'm trying to be more wheat avoid-ant.

Costco has a great granola called Ancient Grains that has very little wheat and what wheat there is has Khorasan in front of it. Tasty stuff anyway. Was eating it like popcorn watching a movie last night.

3. I'm with you on the wheat avoidance

Why are you working on avoiding it?

I heard a story about how they messed up the wheat with some variation where they could get twice the yield.

Then, of course, anyone I've known who has been able to get it out of their diet tells me their waistline melts away.

5. You are most welcome!

It's my busy season and I have not been cooking much. Let me know how it works out in your version!

6. OK, I actually have this in the oven right now, but it looks like they missed something...

Dijon mustard and Worcestershire are on the ingredients list, but not in the directions, so I just beat them in with the eggs and milk.

I also thought there was not enough barley in the recipe. I halved the recipe, but left the barley amount the same. I'll let you know later how it comes out!

7. It turned out quite good!!!

I used spinach instead of swiss chard, and as I mentioned above, I used more barley. Yum!

8. I like your improvements!

I will copy them, but I'm going to double the barley and use try kale as the green.
Thanks for pioneering the recipe!
