  • Transfer to an 8-inch gratin dish or other shallow baking dish. Bake until heated through and lightly browned in places, 20 to 25 minutes (if heated through but not browned, broil 30 to 60 seconds).

  • Decorate with edible insects (use dates and raisins for bodies, and pepitas and almonds for appendages), and serve warm, with crackers and crudités.
