  • 2/3 c. heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme

  • 1-1/2 Tbls. flour
  • 1/2 c. Gruyere cheese, freshly grated
  • 1/3 c. panko bread crumbs
  • Kosher sale & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  1. Position a rack in your oven 6 inches from the broiler and heat broiler on high.
  2. Grease a shallow 9x13 backing dish or rimmed sheet pan with butter.
  3. Season zucchini with salt and pepper and arrange on baking pan.  Broil just until squash is beginning to soften, about 4 minutes.
  4. While squash bakes, whisk together cream, thyme, garlic powder, parmesan cheese and flour in a small bowl.  Pour mixture evenly over squash, then top with Gruyere cheese and panko bread crumbs.
  5. Return to oven and broil until golden brown and bubbly, 4-5 minutes,  Enjoy!
