biscuit baking mix

minced fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
I liked the basis of this recipe. It did need some additional "flavor". I added some fresh finely minced garlic, 2 cloves & red Pepper flakes. I used a cheese biscuit mix (MC). I lightly sauteed 1/2 an onion & drained in on a paper towel. Sometimes, often, onions w/release liquid in the baking process & make things soggy. Dry parmesan usually helps but I added an additional egg & some extra sharp cheddar(1/3 cup in the mix & about the same on top after the last 5 minutes). I did not put in the pepperoni in. We have some vegi people at our Nature Center. Eggs are ok, but the meat stuff isn't. It turned out a hit anyway at my Nature Center & my husband's work.
2 stars, partly because it doesn't exactly tell you how much zucchini to use, but also because the incredibly soggy texture of the outcome. Is it 3 little store-bought zucchini or 3 big zucchini from the garden? I made a half batch and grated one good-sized garden variety, that yielded 2.5 cups or so grated, which I squeezed as much excess liquid out as I could. Once baked golden brown in the top, sides and bottom, I topped with some shredded cheddar and baked a few minutes to melt the cheese. They smelled wonderful, but when I cut in, they were completely soggy underneath. I tried to bake a little longer but it didn't help. Maybe they're supposed to be that way, like a corn pudding as opposed to corn bread, you know? I ate the browned edges and the flavors are yummy, but the super-soggy texture did not work for us, sorry.
Delicious! My family loved it!
I was hoping this would be a good use for some of the zucchini I have, but I found it to lack flavor. The pepperoni just didn't have the punch to make this a recipe worth repeating. It was not soggy, as some reviewers have said, but it definitely needed something more.
good! used 1/3C olive oil & closer to 1C turkey pepperoni--baked till golden.
really had that pizza taste! great way to use zucchini that isn't a sweet dish
This is a great way to use up zucchini from the garden. Unfortunately mine were huge and I didn't realize how tough the peel was. I should have peeled it before using in the recipe. Next time it will be better.
Love this it's so good with marinara sauce .
