Zucchini Gratin With Corn And Bacon
"The best dish to shine a spotlight on fresh summer produce! This cheesy Zucchini Gratin includes corn and sweet onions in a creamy sauce, plus gooey Gruyere cheese, crispy bread crumbs, and smoky bacon on top. The easy zucchini casserole is a simple side dish to serve with your favorite grilled chicken, salmon or steak, but it's also flavorful enough to stand on its own as an entrée with a side of crusty bread. If you have a bounty of zucchini in your garden, a delicious zucchini au gratin is the perfect way to enjoy it! While Zucchini Gratin or Zucchini au Gratin may sound fancy (thanks to its French name), this is really just a cheesy zucchini casserole! The word gratin means "a dish with a light browned crust of breadcrumbs or melted cheese," and that's exactly what we've got here. You'll cook the onion, zucchini and corn in butter and bacon drippings on the stovetop until tender, add flour and milk to make a creamy sauce, bake it in the oven, and finish it with Gruyere, homemade buttered breadcrumbs, and crispy bacon. This easy recipe is a perfect summer side dish with fish or meat, or a light lunch or dinner when paired with a baguette. It's truly the best way to eat your veggies this season! "
