Cheesy Zucchini Gratin
Wonderfully rich and creamy with the best crisp/crusty topping! Plus, it’s WAY HEALTHIER than the traditional potato gratin!!
When it comes to Thanksgiving, you need to come prepared.
The fat pants.
The yoga pants.
The stretchy pants.
Even Joey Tribbiani’s Thanksgiving pants.
Which was really Phoebe’s maternity pants (aka for stealing melons).
But if you need a break from all the different kinds of potatoes on your table this year, this zucchini dish is perfect.
It has all the rich, creamy cheesy flavors of your potato gratin.
Except with zucchini.
It’s really just a great way to get in your greens with the best topping of all: French’s® Crispy Onions! #HolidaywithFrenchs!
These are made with real onions for incredible flavor, adding the perfect crunch to every dish.
Best of all.
