Zucchini Bake

Recently I prepared my Aunt Vi's "Zucchini Bake" for a holiday luncheon at work. The next day, I gave the recipe to six people. I've been thinking about putting the recipe on Helium, and this clinched it. I tried finding another recipe similar to this one, but I simply didn't encounter anything similar.

Some people at the luncheon thought it was a frittata. Others believed it was a quiche. I'd say it's somewhere in between. Nonetheless it makes a delicious addition to any main course meal, or even an 'anytime' snack. It can be enjoyed heated up, at room temperature, or even cold right out of the fridge. I guess you could say it's versatile.

Ingredients:

4 Zucchini, chopped or grated
1 Cup Grated Cheese
Cup Vegetable Oil/Crisco
1 Small Onion Chopped or grated (*grating adds lots of extra flavor!)
Salt/Black Pepper
Parsley Flakes or Fresh Parsley, chopped
Garlic Powder
1 Cup of Bisquick (or just plain flour!)
4 Eggs

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees

Chop or grate(*) the zucchini into small pieces

Mix in Bisquick

Beat 4 eggs, then add the following:

-Oil
-Grated Cheese
-Onion
-Salt and Pepper
-Parsley
-Garlic Powder

Mix well!

Spray baking pan with coking spray
Place mixture into pan

Let bake until golden brown on top

Takes about 45-60 minutes

When serving, cut the bake into small squares

Enjoy!
