#1302: Rec: Zucchini Gratin
Posted by: Pat-NoCal at 5:00 pm on Mar 29, 2006
2 tbsp butter
6 medium zucchini, sliced
2 tbsp chopped fresh oregano or 2 tsp dried
1-1/4 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup whipping cream
Preheat oven to 350̊F. Butter 9-inch diameter deep-dish glass pie plate. Melt butter in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini; saute until golden, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Layer half of zucchini in prepared dish. Sprinkle half of oregano and l/2 cup cheese over. Repeat layering with zucchini, oregano and 1/2 cup cheese. Combine milk, cream and eggs in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Pour custard over zucchini. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese over. Bake until gratin is set in center, about 35 minutes.
Patís notes: Easy and delicious. On the top layer I sometimes add thin sliced Roma tomatoes here and there (not covering the whole gratin). Was a nice accompaniment to parchment wrapped salmon with a caesar salad. The gratin is also nice served with Parmesan Baked Potatoes.
