A Cheesy Day

The kids and I had a pretty laid back day. We worked on chores, visited the local and University library for Bug. All in all, a pretty good day. (Hunting W. is bonding with nature while trying to get a deer.) This is what we had for dinner. We ate early so I think I may find a yummy dessert to make.

Broiled Zucchini with Cheese

from What's for Dinner?
Print Recipe

1 zucchini, 10-12 inches long
seasoned salt
finely grated cheese, enough to cover zucchini

Preheat broiler and put rack into middle position. Wash zucchini and cut off ends. Cut into crosswise slices (the thinner the slices the shorter the cook time). Spray a large round or rectangular baking sheet with non-stick spray. Cover baking sheet completely with zucchini rounds, putting them as close together as possible. Sprinkle with season salt. Completely cover top of zucchini with grated cheese. Broil until cheese is browned and zucchini is tender, about 5-10 minutes depending on thickness of slices. Serve immediately.
