“Bread crumbs and almonds combine for the toasty topping typical of a gratin. Pump up crispness by adding ingredients that naturally lend crisp texture, such as water chestnuts, sweet peppers, nuts and Jicama. Each serving is 1/2 cup. Exchanges: 1 vegetable, 0.5 starch. I found this recipe in Diabetic Living magazine. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping.”
