Lightened Up Pumpkin Gratin
Craving Something Healthy
olive or canola oil
can pumpkin puree
not pumpkin pie filling
grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 6-casserole or gratin dish with cooking spray.
Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan on high, and sauté shallot in the oil until they begin to turn light brown in spots.
Spoon the shallots and pumpkin puree into the bowl of a food processor and add eggs, Gruyere, 2 tablespoons of parmesan, milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Process for about 15 seconds until smooth.
Toss breadcrumbs with butter and remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese.
Pour pumpkin mix into the casserole dish and top with breadcrumb mix.
Bake for 35-45 minutes until set and slightly browned on top. If crumbs start to get too brown before gratin is set, cover lightly with foil.
