I'm personally not sure about the breaded cheese curds but the rest of it sounds really good! You could maybe top with sliced potatoes to make a hotpot (sort of) and if you wanted a cheese flavour to it sprinkle some grated cheese on top.
I made this recipe today as I was looking to use up some fennel left over from another recipe to avoid food wastage.
I substituted the vermouth (as I didn't have any) for white wine and reduced the salt as I thought there was a bit too much. I served it with cous cous and it was delicious. All the flavours really worked well together and I'll definitely use this again!!
One thing that I would like to see added to this recipe is the nutritional information for those of us watching what we eat.
