celery root au gratin


this celery root was so good..now potatoes au gratin would have been amazing but since we are watching our carbs i made it with celery root and let me tell you.. you can't even notice the difference.. in fact shell liked it better.. my mom made it last week and said my dad loved it too!

prep time: 15 minutes
cooking time: 1 hour
servings: 4

ingredients:

2 1-pound celery roots, peeled  and sliced
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup chicken broth

slice your celery root i par-boiled them for about 10 minutes then rinsed in cold water so they were easy to work with.. preheat oven to 400(f).. sprinkle some of the shallots in the bottom your casserole dish.. top with a row of celery root, season with your spices, sprinkle cheese over, then layer shallots again, repeat until all ingredients are done.. combine chicken broth and whipping cream pour over everything.. cover with foil bake for 45 minutes... remove foil and bake another 15 minutes or until cheese is brown on top.. cool about 10 minutes before serving..
