Zucchini Gratin

I was going to make zucchini parmesan, but didn't have all the ingredients I needed and didn't feel like going to the grocery store, so I decided that zucchini gratin would also hit the spot. The only cheese I had was colby jack, so I used it for the topping and it was delicious!

Zucchini Gratin

6 Tablespoons Butter
1 Large Onion, cut in half and then into very thin slices
4 Large Zucchini, cut in half and then into 1/4 inch slices
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Pepper
4 Tablespoons Flour
1 1/2 Cups Milk, heated
1/2 Cups Italian Bread Crumbs
4 Ounces Cheese (Parmesan, Mozzarella, Colby Jack)

In very large sauté pan over medium low heat fry onions in butter until very tender but not browned, about 20 minutes. Next add zucchini, salt and pepper and cook covered for 10 minutes. Next add flour to mixture and cook, stirring until incorporated. Add heated milk, turn up heat to medium high and bring to a simmer, continue cooking until sauce starts to thicken.
Pour into 9x13 inch pan and sprinkle with bread crumbs and then cover with cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until bubbling around the edges. Next turn on broiler and broil until top is golden. Let cool for 10 minutes to set up and serve.
