Pear & Red Onion Gratin
Note: We like to use the Ian's brand of coarse dry breadcrumbs, labeled “Panko breadcrumbs.” Find them in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets.
To make your own breadcrumbs:Trim crusts from firm sandwich bread. Tear the bread into pieces and process in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. One slice makes about 1/3 cup. Spread the breadcrumbs on a baking sheet and bake at 250°F until dry and crispy, about 15 minutes.
