READY IN: 1hr 22mins




  • Lightly oil a small baking sheet.
  • Whisk the stock, semolina flour, and salt in a heavy medium saucepan over medium-high heat until the mixture bubbles and is very thick, about 10 minute.
  • Beat the egg in a large bowl.
  • Gradually beat the semolina mixture into the egg.
  • Transfer the gnocchi mixture to the prepared baking sheet, spreading it to form a 1/2-inch thick layer.
  • Cover and refrigerate until the gnocchi mixture is cold and firm, at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Generously butter a 10-inch diameter gratin dish.
  • Using a 2" cookie cutter, cut out rounds from the gnocchi mixture.
  • Arrange the gnocchi in the prepared baking/gratin dish, overlapping slightly.
  • Brush the remaining butter over the gnocchi.
  • Sprinkle with the cheese and pepper, if desired.
  • Broil until the gnocchi are heated through and beginning to brown, about 6 minute.
