Cucumber Gratin

Cooked cucumbers make a terrific savory side dish!

1½ Tbsp. butter, divided

1 large cucumber, peeled & seeded, cut into 1/2” chunks


2 tsp. snipped herbs (one herb or a blend of basil, dill, tarragon, chives, etc.)

Zest from 1/2 lemon

2 Tbsp. panko or fine breadcrumbs

2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350.

Melt butter and cook for 2-3 minutes until starting to turn brown. Toss half the browned butter with the cucumber strips, season with salt, and put into a greased 8” baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and turn oven to boiler mode. Stir herbs and zest into the cucumbers. Combine the breadcrumbs, cheese and remaining browned butter and sprinkle on top of the cucumbers.

Broil for 1-2 minutes, until the breadcrumbs are golden.
