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.


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.


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.
