Zucchini Bake

Aunt Vi's "Zucchini Bake" is always a hit!  Every time I make it, I end up giving the recipe to people. Most people don't know what it is exactly.  Some think it's a frittata. Others say it's 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.  And I recently tried it with a can of kernel corn and it added a whole new dimension to the dish.  I guess you could say it's really versatile.  Here's the recipe:


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
1 can any brand whole kernel corn (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 Degrees

Chop or grate(*) the zucchini into small pieces

Mix in Bisquick

Beat 4 eggs, then add the following:

-Grated Cheese
-Salt and Pepper
-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
