Swiss Chard Casserole with Shiitake Mushrooms
Delicious and easy to make and serve, this frittata-like casserole is just the kind of dish that F&W’s Justin Chapple likes to serve as a first course at dinner parties. He slices the baked casserole into bite-size squares and tops them with a dollop of crème fraîche to serve with cocktails.
Maria Helm Sinskey claims that a rich gratin topped with cheesy bread crumbs is the only way her children will eat Swiss chard. “I’ve learned that a little cream and cheese gets my kids to finish their vegetables,” she says.
For a gorgeous, relatively light holiday side dish, Fabio Trabocchi turns to rainbow chard, which has crisp-tender stalks in an array of bright yellows, pinks and reds. Plain green Swiss chard is delicious here too.
