Zucchini Gratin

Summer vegetables are just around the corner and I don’t know about you but I love zucchini. But when it comes in… it really comes in. So I thought I would try a gratin to see if it would be a delicious dinner for the family.

Start with two large onions. Peel, slice and sauté in 6 T. of butter for 20 minutes, until onions are soft.

Add four zucchini, sliced about ¼ inch thick. Sauté for another 10 minutes, covered. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg and cook for another 5 minutes. 

The nutmeg is important for the sauce… do not skip this important ingredient… you will love the addition.

Stir in flour.

Add hot milk and cook over low heat until it creates a thick sauce.

Pour into a greased baking dish, approximately 8 by 10 inches.
Cover with bread crumbs and gruyere. Dot with butter and bake for 20 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

ABSOLUTELY delicious!! A great way to use zucchini. Hearty enough for the main course.
