I toyed around with ingredients while making Zucchini Bread, until I came up with a recipe my entire family could enjoy. I hate Zucchini Bread! But I love this bread, and when I sell it in the farmer's market, people say its the best they've ever tasted! I like to make a fair amount of it, but because of the rounded-off ingredients, this is easy to halve.
My friend Amy recently sent me her recipe for her sweet zucchini bread. This is "...one of our all-time fave recipes for something dessert-like, even if it isn't specific to Thanksgiving." When her daughter brought home a baseball-bat sized zucchini this past summer, this is what they did with it. :) Makes 4 loaves.
From RSVP, Junior League Cookbook from Portland, ME. This was submitted by Joan Fortin. Uses Bisquick. This dish could be baked and then cut into pieces and then frozen. To serve, place frozen portions in a 350 degree F. oven for 15 minutes. Nice side dish for a roast.
This is a side dish that I make often in the summer. My husband is not a huge zucchini fan, but he enjoys this with our grilled meats! Not only does it use up some of the extra zucchini from the garden, it is fast and extremely easy! Sometimes I bake the zucchini, but other times we put them on foil “trays” and add it to the grill, alongside our meat. This is also good with oregano or a combination of your favorite herbs. Also, experiment with other hard cheeses, like Romano.
All in one dish without the need to cook pasta in a separate pan. It has been a hit with my family. I found this recipe from the Family Circle magazine and adjusted to meet our family's tastes. They estimated that each serving costs less than $2 per serving (from 2006 estimates).
A very healthy Lasagna recipe without all the pasta. Great way for this bariatric patient to still get one of my favorite dishes. I also like to add a little low-fat ricotta cheese to the bottom layer from time to time to change it up.
