  1. Place garlic cloves in small sauce pot, cover with water and bring to boil; drain. Cover with fresh water, simmer until cloves are tender, 5 to 10 minutes; drain. Puree garlic and cream together with blender; season with salt and white pepper, to taste. Simmer cream over low heat to reduce slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; cool.
  2. Toss zucchini and squash with 2 tablespoons olive oil, season with salt and pepper and grill until soft, about 5 minutes; set aside. Toss onion with 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with salt and pepper and grill until soft, about 5 minutes; set aside. Drain the sliced tomatoes on paper towels; set aside.
  3. Combine and toss bread crumbs with 1/4 cup olive oil; set aside.
  4. Heat oven to 350° F. To assemble the tians, spray-coat 12 (4 to 5-inch) gratin baking dishes. For each dish, place 1/4 cup squash in the bottom. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon cheese and 1 teaspoon basil. Top with about 1-1/2 tablespoons onions and 1 teaspoon cheese. Add one sliced egg, 1-1/2 tablespoons garlic cream; 2 teaspoons basil, 1 or 2 tomato slices, 1-1/2 teaspoons cheese and about 1 tablespoon bread crumbs. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until edges are bubbly and brown and tians are cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 160° F. Serve immediately.
