I’ve shared several egg recipes with you in the past- Basil and Corn Tart, Mini Frittatas, Eggs to Go and a yummy Spinach Omelet Roll (you can find them all in my Eat It– recipe section). Today I have another to add to the list, this time using zucchini (yes we still have zucchini in the garden), This isn’t “officially” a soufflé, but I thought it sounded better than zucchini egg casserole. It’s Labor day weekend here in the US. Happy Labor Day wishes! I will be spending the long weekend making happy memories with my sweet husband.
What You Need
3 Cups zucchini (grated skin on or off it’s your preference)
1/2 Cup olive oil, Plus 3 Tbsp
1 Cup Bisquick baking mix ( or your favorite baking mix)
1 tsp. Dry oregano
1 Tbsp. Fresh basil (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp. Salt
11/2 tsp. Black pepper
1/4 Cup green onions (tops and bottoms) finely chopped
1/2 Cup white onion (chopped)
1 1/2 Cups low fat cheddar cheese (grated)* I use Cabot low fat cheddar, its lactose free too
1/2 Cup Parmesan cheese ( grated)
6 Eggs ( beaten)
Non stick cooking spray
Baking dish ( 9 x 13 x 2)
Frying pan (skillet)
Sieve (or colander lined with cheesecloth)
Before You Start: Wash and grate zucchini, prepare baking dish and preheat oven to 350°
Lets Make It! In a pan (skillet) heat 3 Tbsp olive oil over medium high heat, add onions and zucchini and sauté until tender ( not completely cooked) about 3-5 minutes. Drain off water ( from veggies) through a sieve ( or colander lined with cheesecloth). Let zucchini and onion mixture cool for about 10 minutes. In a large bowl combine zucchini and onion mix, eggs, olive oil, salt, pepper, basil, oregano and cheddar cheese. Stir well to combine. Whisk in Bisquick and combine well. Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 40 minutes ( if it starts to get to brown cover loosely with aluminum foil). Remove from oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese cook for 5 minutes longer or until cheese has browned.( I didn’t add the Parmesan cheese to mine this time)
