Zucchini-Onion Pancakes Gratinées
30 - 2 ½ “ pancakes

1/4 c. butter
3 small to medium onions, thinly sliced
2 small zucchini, thinly sliced (8 oz. total)

½ c. milk
3 eggs
1/3 c. flour
½ c. grated Parmesan
1/8 t. grated nutmeg
Salt & pepper

2 T. clarified butter or 1T. butter & 1 T. oil

1/3 c. whipping cream
½ c. Parmesan

Melt butter over low heat in heavy skillet. Add onion, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes; do not let onion brown. Increase heat to medium, add zucchini and stir until almost tender, 2-3 minutes. Set aside at least 20 minutes to cool.

Mix flour, eggs, milk, and ½ c. Parmesan in processor or blender. Add zucchini mixture and mince using on/off turns. Blend in nutmeg. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Melt clarified butter on griddle over medium heat. Ladle 2 ½" pancakes and cook until bottom is medium brown...2-3 minutes. Turn and brown other side. Repeat with remaining batter adding more butter as necessary.

Arrange pancakes in large gratin pan or broilerproof baking dish, overlapping as little as possible. (Can be prepared several hours ahead to this point and kept at room temp)

Preheat broiler. Pour cream over pancakes and sprinkle evenly with ½ c. Parmesan. Broil until cheese is melted and golden brown. Serve immediately.
