all-purpose baking mix
shredded Cheddar cheese
We loved it! I used the reduce fat Bisquick baking mix. I cut the oil back to 1/3 cup. I also added two large garlic cloves, finely chopped. This is a great recipe to take as pot-luck dish. When I made this a second time I split the batter up and put bacon in half, and lighly sauted mushrooms in the other - but I baked it in the same dish (1/2 and 1/2). This is a no fail recipe. I tried to cut the oil back to 1/4 cup, but it turned out to be too dry - the 1/3 cup is best.
I would also add a 1/2 tsp. of dried basil or oregano, for variation.
This is a winner.
To me a 4.5 star recipe is one that needs almost no tweaking to be divine and that is just not the case here. I made it as suggested and it was just bland. I have no idea how this dish would be cut into "bite sized appetizers" or made to look like the pretty photo included. Perhaps if you took all of the changes that other reviewers suggest it would be memorable but then it would be an entirely different recipe. It is a good base concept and a new way to use zucchini so I liked that. I may try it again with lots of changes. Sorry!
I made this and it was great. The second time I made it; I grated the zucchini and it came out much better - easier to slice.
This recipe is very similar to one that my mother-in-law passed down to us. The only difference is that we use 1/2 cup parmesan instead of the cheddar cheese.
I like to use egg substitute, and I always peel and shred the zucchini. I also cut the oil in half, and my family actually prefers the lighter version.
I added a 1/2 tsp dry mustard, a 1/4 tsp curry powder, about 1/2 cup Italian seasoned tomatoes that were left over from another dinner, then added a handful of fresh herbs from my garden.....some Italian parsely, dill, oregano. I added a bit more garlic. I also used green onion instead of regular onion, then threw in about two TBSP more of the baking mix so it wouldn't be too mushy. The end result was very pleasing, and the dinner party guests all raved about the appetizer. Personally, the jury is still out, but I am going to freeze the leftovers, and serve it at my next party in a few weeks.Can't argue with the masses.
The whole family loved it!! Made it in the morning and by lunch time it was gone. I added about 2 tsp. of chopped jalapenos to it, as we like our food with a bite! Great for an appetizer or anytime snack.
I made these for a party as an hors'deouvres and they were SO bland. All you could taste was egg and zucchini. Maybe for brunch these would be okay, but not as an appetizer at a cocktail party.
Tried it and liked it. Made some adjustments that my family likes. We even serve this as the Main course. I decreased the oil to 1/4 of a cup. And I added 2 heaping tablespoons of Feta cheese! Very yummy!
