Thumbs up Zucchini and Cheese Bake

Zucchini and Cheese Bake

Puts that long stored food processor to good use. Recipe tastes much like a corn bread casserole! A little time consuming, but worth it if you crave comfort food!

The original recipe used monterey jack cheese, but I think the cheddar would add more pop to it! I can say this is a recipe we'll make again, even though it made a mess of my food processor!

4 Tbs butter, divided
1 cup onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/4 lbs zucchini, 1/8" slices
1 cup Sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 egg
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp pepper
1 oz freshly grated parmesan cheese

1 Butter or spray a 6x8" baking dish or a 6-cup casserole dish.
2 Run onion and garlic through food processor to dice for a shortcut.
3 Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
4 Add the onion and garlic; sauté until the onion is soft and translucent. While cooking onion, run zucchini through food processor to slice thin. Transfer onion to a small bowl.
5 Melt the remaining butter over medium-low heat in the same skillet. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring frequently until the zucchini is tender.
6 Turn the heat to high very briefly; cook and stir constantly until most of the liquid has evaporated.
7 Transfer to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add all the remaining ingredients except the onions and parmesan cheese and pulse to combine.
8 Add the onions and pulse just to combine. Pour into the baking dish. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the top.
9 Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top and set in the middle.

Thanks Kel, I'm gonna try it.

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."
