grated Romano cheese
ground black pepper
buttery round crackers, crushed
This is a good company dish. I prefer not cooking the zucchini before adding the other ingredients as the zucchini got too mushy.
I found this recipe kind of tasteless, although my friend loved it. It was much more eggy than I expected.
A friend gave me 2 big zucchinis and 2 big yellow summer squashes. I made this recipe with each squash. It is equally good with either kind. Unexpected company came the first day we tried this, and they raved about it.
I did substitute egg beaters for eggs,Nayonaise (soy base) for mayonaise, & 4 oz of (soy base)mozzarella cheese for the romano. I also feel that you can get 12 servings from this recipe. Using the carb count the way I made it is about 13 grams. I also would like to add some Italian seasoning the next time I make this. Overall this was a wonderful way to enjoy my fresh zucchini from the garden. Thanks to Mary for this recipe.
I was very happy with it, but did make a couple of changes....used a cheddar/jack mix of cheese instead of the romano and when it came out of the oven, grated romano over the top.......also, did NOT cook the zucchini first.
Wow, this is great!! Very tasty and a super way to use up the zucchini. Even better warmed up the next day!! One note, I wouldn't use 6 LARGE zucchini, that would be far to much. I think the recipe should read: 6 small zucchini. You could even serve it as a breakfast/brunch dish. Don't skimp on the onions, they are a key ingredient. Will DEFINITELY make this again and again. Thanks for sharing!!
This dish makes for a tasty brunch and is a great way to use up those extra garden zucchinis. I substituted shredded mozzarella cheese for the romano, added extra black pepper & a few dashes of salt, and used corn flakes instead of crackers for the topping. Instead of using pats of butter, I melted about 1/4 cup of butter and drizzled it over the top for more even distribution. We thoroughly enjoyed this dish hot, cold, and reheated the next day!
This ones a keeper! Made it with and without the crushed crackers and still good. Also made with parmesean cheese and still good! Thanks. PS We think its good the next day too!
