Bay Scallops Gratin

Jane Whittaker


This is adapted from one of the barefoot Contessa's recipies.
I didn't have some of the items she called for, so I used what I had.
Also wondered about the gratin dishes because of all the discussions about pyrex dishes, was wondering about any glass dish at the high temp, so I made my own out of foil.
