That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Zucchini Gratin~

Home » 160+ Side Dishes » Zucchini Gratin~

I knew this would be a hard sell.  My hubby tends to get zucchini and cucumbers mixed up…and he’s not a fan of either.  I thought if anyone could make zucchini appealing, it would be Ina.  I only made a third of Ina’s Zucchini Gratin recipe, and baked just three mini gratins.  The zucchini kept its shape and texture, and the creamy sauce flavored with onions and nutmeg was perfect.  I used less onion than called for, and added some diced red bell pepper for color and a sprinkling of fresh thyme.  The topping of fresh bread crumbs and Gruyere made a beautiful crisp topping.  I loved it…no one else did…but what else would you expect from a zucchini-phobic bunch? 

I will post a link later today so you can see what other Ina’s Garden members thought of this dish. The recipe can be found here.
