Nectarine and Almond Breakfast Gratin
Nectarines and almonds are a classic French combination and in this simple, but elegant dish they are prepared in a gratin. Essentially a thin, crepe-like batter is poured over the nuts and fruits, just enough to make a base that holds them together so they can be sliced. The fruit is dotted with butter, sprinkled with sugar, and baked until the batter sets. Serve this warm, accompanied by your favorite breakfast foods.
