directions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Add the zucchini and cook, covered, for 10 minutes, or until just tender.
  • Add the salt, pepper, and nutmeg and cook uncovered for 5 more minutes. Stir in the flour. Add the hot milk and cook over low heat for a few more minutes, until it makes a sauce.
  • Pour the mixture into an 8"x10" baking dish.
  • Combine the bread crumbs and cheese and sprinkle on top of the zucchini mixture. Dot with 1 tablespoon of the extra butter cut into small bits.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until bubbly and browned. Enjoy!

    What a delicious way to enjoy a zucchini from the garden. I almost never use nutmeg but I left it in this recipe and I was glad I did. The saute time with the onions and garlic added a lot of depth. We will enjoy this again.

    Oh my goodness this is good! We had company over and everyone went for seconds on this one! We just loved it! I used half yellow squash & half zucchini since I had a ton of both from our garden. I also used half milk & half 1/2 & 1/2. I upped the flour to 3 Tbsp & mixed that into the milk before pouring over the zucchini. The textures and flavors are wonderful and it's easy to put together. I even had to give over the recipe to the guests before they would leave! Thank you for a wonderful dish :)
