Serve this side dish with baked eggs or roasted chicken, pork, and fish.



    • 3 fennel bulbs
    • 1 tablespoon softened butter
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
    • 4 sprigs thyme


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Boil 3 fennel bulbs, trimmed and split lengthwise, until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain fennel, cut side down, on paper towels, 5 minutes. Place fennel, cut side up, in a buttered 8-inch square baking dish and brush with 1 tablespoon softened butter. Season with coarse salt and ground pepper and top with 1/3 cup grated Parmesan and 4 sprigs thyme. Bake until cheese is golden brown, about 20 minutes.
