Broil: cheese, other grain, cilantro, bacon, and fennel

What can you make with cheese, grains, bacon, and fennel?

Use cheese, fennel, and any less common grain such as buckwheat, barley, or farro for protein, veggies, and carbs. Add flavor and character to the meal with cilantro and bacon.

You might want to combine the ingredients into a single meal — on a sheet pan or in a crock pot, for example — or separate them into multiple dishes. Whatever you decide, we suggest you broil at least one of the dishes.

Use any additional ingredients that you think will work as well. There are really no rules here. This is all just a suggested starting point to get you going. If you’re inspired to do something completely different, then good for you! The point is just to have fun and to discover some new flavors and food combinations.
