Cheesy Zucchini Bake
1 zucchini, sliced
¼ onion, sliced thinly
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp olive oil
¼ cup grated cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350oF. Spray bottom of a glass oven-proof circular dish with cooking spray. Arrange the zucchini slices in a circular pattern in the pan, overlapping slightly. After the first layer, spread about ¾ of the onion slices on top. Add the rest of the zucchini slices in a second circular layer, and then top with the remaining onion. Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and Parmesan, and drizzle the top with olive oil. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and top with the grated cheddar cheese. Bake for an additional 5 minutes so the cheese melts.
Here's the zucchini bake just before I put it in the oven for the first time:
Here's the finished product after adding the grated cheddar and letting it melt in the oven:
For the beats, I'm bending the title of this song slightly to make it fit my message. I think this dish could make anyone try and enjoy zucchini (mostly because of all the cheese), even if they're quite reluctant. In other words, it could cause you to make an exception to your dislike of this glorious vegetable. In honour of that idea (and because I recently ordered the sheet music to this song and can't stop playing it on my piano), here is The Only Exception by Paramore.
