Cheesy Zucchini and Summer Squash

unnamed (3)

Let’s get cheesy with zucchini and summer squash. Tis the season for vegetables that keep on giving.  We plant zucchini, and it’s one of those vegetables that we end up with so much.  This recipe is a great side dish to any meat or poultry platter.  It gets even better when you add some Gruyere cheese, which in my opinion is the perfect cheese to add to anything baked.


2 summer squash, cubed
1 large zucchini, cubed
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups Gruyere cheese, shredded
1 cup seasoned Panko crumbs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Salt & pepper, to taste
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons fresh oregano


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl add zucchini, summer squash, 1 cup of cheese, onions, oregano and salt and pepper. Toss everything. Place on to a baking dish. Top with remaining cup of cheese. In a small bowl mix melted butter with Panko crumbs. Crumble on top. Place in the oven and bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown crust has formed.
