Well, without having to wait until tomorrow, I can see that choice #2, Zuquiche, is the winner. Zuquichey was first suggested by Petey, then Zuquiche was suggested by Sue. Thanks to all who suggested recipe titles and/or voted - it was a lot of fun! Some people mentioned wanting to try the recipe, so here it is! Feel free to copy it, or save this blog as a web link to your recipe box. I am going to submit it, but we all know about AR's famous recipe purgatory/limbo. Some escape and some do not! Enjoy - let me know if you like it!


2 cups shredded zucchini

½ teaspoon salt   

1 clove garlic, minced

2 green onions, diced

½ cup diced red pepper

½ cup flour

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

½ teaspoon baking powder

one egg, lightly beaten

½ cup milk (I use 2%)

2 TBSP melted butter

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Spray an 8 X 8 glass baking dish with cooking spray.

Place shredded zucchini in a medium bowl and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt.

Let it sit for about 15 minutes to allow the zucchini to release its juices.

Then strain/squeeze it to get out the liquid. You want it as dry as possible.

(I've gotten up to 3/4 cup liquid out of mine)

I used a mixing bowl to press it into the strainer.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, pepper, and ¼ tsp salt.

In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, and butter.

Stir egg mixture into dry mixture just until blended.

Fold in veggies and cheese and mix gently just until incorporated.

Spread in greased baking dish and bake 30-40 minutes until top is lightly browned and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Moist zucchini may add cooking time.

Allow to cool about 10 minutes before serving.

As always, thanks for dropping by!

It looks great, will have to get a nice zucchini at the farmer's stand on Weds and try it out! I just joined all recipes and have been exploring the site a bit more than the usual raiding when I need a certain kind of recipe! Hope you get it posted and wonder why it takes so long!

I can't believe I didn't see this until now - sounds delicious! I love zucchini, and quiche - great combo. I know what you mean about draining them; I have to do that for my zucchini meatloaf. I strain, drain, squeeze, and press the resulting patty between layers of paper towels to get even more out; I swear, those things are juicier than watermelons! I definitely plan to make this; a friend promised me a whole pile of zukes, yum! Good luck; I hope they publish it!

I'm making this recipe tonight. Will come back and make a review on here, even though I know it will taste great.

RECIPE REVIEW: I really enjoyed this recipe. I made exactly as stated with the exception of using a small loaf pan because I didn't have an 8X8 baking dish. As is, its a great and easy side dish that I'm sure I will make again and again. Thanks Pam for such a lovely recipe. Hopefully AR will speed up the recipe submission process so I can leave this on your recipe.

RECIPE REVIEW II: This was our brunch main dish last weekend. I had to make a few changes because I had no butter. I followed as written but subbed 1/4 cup of 1/2&1/2 and an extra egg and I added 1/8 tsp cayenne. My family loved it. Submit this - it is a winner!

About Me
I have three teenage sons who are picky eaters (especially the middle one). I try to cook things that they might enjoy trying, but they're not always willing to try new things. My husband started out a picky eater when we met back in 1986, but he's gotten much better and is willing to try ALMOST anything I make. In my spare time I teach second grade. I have introduced my students to cooking and/or new foods over the years.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try all sorts of new recipes, so I don't really have a favorite thing to cook. I enjoy using fresh ingredients from the garden and canning those ingredients to use year-round. I also enjoy baking treats for my second grade class. I'll try almost anything if I think my family will eat it. Of course, I've been known to try a recipe because I want to, whether they'll eat it or not.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making the pumpkin pies and other desserts for Thanksgiving. I always like to try one new dessert for each holiday. Baking Christmas cookies is a tradition that goes back as long as I can remember.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some pretty cool cakes for my boys' birthdays. They include a firetruck, baseball, football, and Pokeball. I've also used shaped pans to decorate everything from Barney and Elmo, Power Ranger, Jeff Gordon's #24 racecar, football helmet, a dog and dog house, a monkey, a giant cupcake, and a penguin. Some recent cakes have been a pizza, chef's hat, and Topsy-Turvy (Mad Hatter Cake.) The last one didn't collapse - that was a real triumph! One of my best triumphs has been teaching my boys to cook. They'll never go hungry.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked a turkey I relied on my thermometer to tell when it was done. It wasn't.
