Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat until a pinch of flour sprinkled into the oil will just begin to bubble. Whisk in flour, stirring constantly until mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Slowly add milk, stirring to avoid lumps. Continue stirring until a smooth, thick sauce is obtained, about 10 minutes more. Whisk in bouillon, paprika, and thyme. Remove from heat and let sauce cool.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly butter a 9x13-inch casserole dish.

  • Melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and onion; saute until softened, 12 to 15 minutes. Add carrot and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Add egg to the cooled sauce; whisk rapidly until smooth. Add Cheddar cheese and mix to combine.

  • Layer zucchini mixture evenly into the prepared casserole dish. Pour sauce over vegetables and give it a slight stir to moisten throughout. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top and spray lightly with cooking spray.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bread crumbs start to brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Broil until panko is nicely browned, 2 to 4 minutes more. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

'Sauce was a bit thin after baking, but the zucchini being a li'l wet was definitely to blame. 'Like that smoked paprika; halved the thyme as I always do; added a half teaspoon salt. :) Read More
