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. :)
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
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!
