What to do with the huge, brick-bat zucchini on your counter

OK – so it's one of 2 things: you actually ARE guilt-ridden and cannot throw away the out-of-control, gargantuan zucchini the neighbors brought over OR you let things get out of your control in the backyard garden.

Whatever the case may be, and admittedly due to the fact that I've been guilty of both of the above scenarios, I developed a very good church-potluck-award-winning recipe to use those mammoth things up.  It's time.  Take courage – we ARE going to get your kitchen counter space freed back up.  This works for zucchini and those straight-necked yellow squash when they are too big to be beautifully and tastefully grilled as baby fruit (see previous zucchini post).

Jeanie's Zucchini Casserole

  • 4 cups chopped zucchini (get rid of the seeds, but keep the peel or not, as you desire)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon of sage or poultry seasoning (or more, to your taste)
  • 1 cup Bisquick Baking Mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil (I like canola)
  • 3 teaspoons chicken bouillion dissolved on 2 tablespoons of hot water
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese, optional (if your family has to have cheese on everything – just sprinkle this over the top)

Toss the first 6 ingredients together and place into an buttered baking dish.  Then beat the eggs, the dissolved bouillion and oil and pour over the zucchini mixture.

Bake uncovered at 350-degrees for 40 minutes.  It will be like a lovely bread stuffing.  Enjoy.

Be blessed!  Jeanie

NOTE TO SELF:  I am found out.  Bake some for Dave.  *sigh…

  1. I can vouch for the goodness of the casserole. Who invented casseroles? And why do we call them casseroles? Did it come from a woman named Cassi and she was known for her roles of fat after making such delectable dishes and passing them out to the rest of the village? Was it something that someone just opened the ice box one time, back when we had ice boxes and pulled out everything on the lower shelf and threw it into a pan but didn't want to mix it on top of the stove like a stew so she slid it instead into the oven? Where did these come from! And why do we waste reams of paper in compiling church cook books that are packed full of this potpourri baked into a flaky pie crust. Why are we so attracted to them? Why must we have them several times a month? When did my mother discover them in the 70's. What kind of conspiracy was this propagated by "the man"? Casseroles…

  2. You take this back – I NEVER make casseroles.  Ick!  Now, I may not even make you one of these.  We don't have casseroles "several times a month"  people.  Dave is dreaming!  Ha!

  3. Okay, I didn't mean that we had casserole at OUR house several times a month! I meant when I was growing up. I actually love casserole and would like to mix up a few more during the month!!!!!! me
