"These unusual tidbits are gobbled up as fast as you can serve them! The Parmesan cheese makes a crust for this quiche-like hors d'oeuvre."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

grated Parmesan cheese
2 1/2 cups
dried bread crumbs
ground black pepper
shredded Cheddar cheese
Omitted Oil completely and baked at 400 for 30 minutes. With these changes, my friends and family love this recipe!
I'm not a great cook, but I'm pretty sure I folowed the recipe exactly. The squares were not well received, and were a little greasy.
I did review this recipe already but after reading everyone else's reviews, I'd like to add something. I guess it could be considered bland so add some pepperoni next time. Also, you MUST increase the temp to 450 to brown it. It's just a pile of mush if it isn't browned. Trust me!
I added bacon, since it sounded like mini quiches. I wiped grease off w/a paper towel. It went over good at a family gathering.
This took much longer than I expected. I needed a "finger food" for a reception. I followed the recipe to the letter and it turns out so terribly greasy that I had to throw the whole thing out! I didn't want any "fingers" on this mess!
First, this seems a better side dish than appetizer. It is a bit greasy, and rather bland. The parmasan "crust" was a good idea. The filling just doesn't live up to it though. I wish I'd done what another reviewer suggested and made a batch ahead of time. I would NOT have made this to take to a party. But now I'm stuck!
We served this as a side dish, and we all enjoyed it.
I make this every summer when I have more zucchini from the garden than I know what to do with. After making it a couple of times exactly as stated, I tried turning up the heat like some others suggested. I turn the oven up to 360º, and watch it closely to make sure it doesn't get too brown. I also saute the onions and more garlic first. Since it seems a little too greasy, I will try decreasing the oil next time to 1/4 cup or less. And if you turn up the oven temp. you can forget toasting the sesame seeds beforehand, since they will get brown. I also add more bread crumbs, 1/2 to 3/4 cup.
