Potato and Zucchini Gratin

2 Aug

I don’t know about you, but I seem to have zucchini growing out my ears right about now!  It seems that I’m always trying to find new ways to cook this up.  I found this awesome recipe on the food network site and decided to try it.  I added sliced red potato to the mixture and I think mushrooms would be fabulous in it too.


6 T unsalted butter

1 pound yellow onions, sliced

2 pounds zucchini, sliced

1 pound red potatoes, sliced

2 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

2 T all purpose flour

1 cup hot milk

3/4 cup fresh bread crumbs

3/4 cup grated Gruyere


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Melt the butter and saute the vegetables in a large saucepan.  I started with the onions and potatoes and added the zucchini about 10 minutes later.  Add the salt, pepper and nutmeg and cook for about 5 minutes.  Stir in the flour and then add the hot milk until it makes a sauce.  Add a little bit of the gruyere.  Pour the mixture into a large baking dish.  Combine the gruyere and bread crumbs and sprinkle on top of the vegetables.  Dot with 1 T butter cut into small bits.  Bake for about 20 minutes until bubbly.  Try not to eat the whole dish in one sitting (it’s that good!).
