Zucchini Gratin–an easy, different  &  delicious recipe

1 medium zucchini

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

dash or two of ground nutmeg (I learned to use nutmeg in recipes containing cream & cheese while living in France.)

Grated Cheddar cheese – about 1/4 – 1/2 cup

Half-n-half (or cream) – about 1/4 cup

Thinly slice the zucchini. Start with a single layer of zucchini in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Sprinkle with some of the combined salts &  pepper. Add some of the cheese.

Continue layering until you have no ingredients left except the Half-n-half, then pour this over the whole.

Bake covered at 350 degrees for about 20 min. This amount of time will cause zucchini to be crisp tender. If you like it softer – cook longer.

You can take the cover off for the last 5 minutes or so if you want the top to brown a bit.

P.S. I created this recipe to deal with my abundance of zucchini (sound familiar?). It turned out better than I anticipated. The flavor is really good! I think it’s the nutmeg.
