I'd like to make a post about what I had for dinner, if that's allowed. I was experimenting in the kitchen, and came up with something very delicious!
I may be using the word "Gratin" a bit loosely in this case, but I made something for dinner tonight that was absolutely delicious as a main course. I'm sure some of my omnivorous friends would enjoy it as a side, but here's the skinny:
I sliced a white onion into thin slices, and cooked it over a medium heat along with some pressed garlic and salt and pepper. After the onions had caramelized, after about 20 minutes, I layered them at the bottom of a casserole dish that I had oiled.
On top of the layer of onions I arranged my vegetables, in layers. First came some russet potatoes, sliced thin. Next the golden squash, and lastly then the green squash. After I layered the pan with the vegetables, I sprinkled some Parmesan cheese and more S&P over them. Finally, I crowned the gratin with thickly chopped spring onions, a can of diced tomatoes, and some dried Italian herbs.
Baked for an hour at 375, and in the last five minutes, we sprinkled some grated cheddar on top of it. It was delicious!
