MORE ZUCCHINI


Do you think I have enough zucchini? ROTFLOL I had to find a place to put it all....
I love zucchini. I love it fried, escpecially as Deep Fried Zucchini Sticks





These are cut like big oven fries, dipped in egg, then dipped it Italian bread crumbs. They fry up in 2 or 3 minutes in the deep fryer., maybe that's part of why I like it this way so much...it's quick & easy & clean up isn't as bad as when you fry a few skillets full. lol



But here's the pie. I love this pie. :)



ZUCCHINI PIE


4 c. thinly slice zucchini

1 c. chopped onions

1/4 to 1/2 c margarine

1/2 c. chopped fresh parsley of 2 T. dried parsley

1/2 t. salt

1/2 t. pepper

1/4 t. garlic salt

1/4 t. basil

1/4 t. oregano

2 eggs, beaten

2 c. grated cheddar or jack cheese

Dijon mustard

Deep dish pie crust, frozen or homemade


Prepare homemade crust or allow frozen crust to thaw. Preheat oven to 375.

In a large skillet saute the zucchini & onions in the margarine for about 10 minutes or until softened . (I also added half of a green pepper, diced) Add the spices & stir well. Set aside.

In a large bowl combine the eggs & cheese, mix well. (our favorite is cheddar cheese) Add the zucchini mixture & stir till well blended.

Use Dijon mustard to paint inside of crust. ( I used a thicker layer of dijon one time & did not like it. I use about 1 t. of it, but you can use more if you like it.) Fill the pie crust with the zucchini mixture & bake for 18-20 minutes. (I added another 5 minutes to lighlty brown on top) Allow to stand for 10 minutes before cutting & serving.


It is so good. I served it with tossed salad that had fresh broccoli out of the garden in it, & melons. Not a piece of meat to be found & I thought it was good!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! This recipe sounds great! Thanks for the idea! I'm wondering how many times I can feed my family zucchini this summer before they complain! Gina
