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.

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.

Baked Zucchini Squares Haiku: "Sweat the zucchini, to avoid the sogginess. Skipped pepperoni." Halved this recipe as a side dish for 4 salmon cakes (Chef John's recipe), and prepared it in an 8" square dish, and my zucchini was large-ish. I let the grated zucchini and chopped onion drain in a dish towel-lined colander for a few hours, squeezing out excess moisture b4 mixing it into the other ingredients. Other than that part of the preparation (and not using pepperoni), I stuck to the recipe. It was a nice, light side dish, and honestly, tasted better the following morning re-heated for breakfast. I think making it again, I'd add a shake of crushed red pepper and some mushrooms (that I would lightly-sautee w/ the onions b/c the one thing we didn't care for in this was the raw onions.)

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.

Used 3 med zucchini. Would cut back next time cause it was way too moist. Maybe use more baking mix? Also put cheddar on top and used more cheese than called for. Taste was okay just didn't care for texture. Also had to bake at 375 F as nothing was happening at 350 F
