Great side dish for a busy family! So simple to throw it together. The hint of nutmeg with the mustard was a real twist for us and the kids did not enjoy it as much as the adults. Mine finished in the oven in about 30 minutes as I did not want it to get too browned. Nice side dish that easily can go with almost any main dish a family would serve - love that versatility! Thanks LM for another great recipe!
I had to slap myself to realize this is a low fat, low cal dish! All the taste of high calorie, with none of the fat and calories.....a real winner for me! Warning.....I did have to make myself stick to one serving....it is so good. Made for Zaar Stars. Thanks for sharing!
Really like this one! It%u2019s got good flavor. Liked that it calls for drying the zucchini with out added salt and that it be made hart healthy using Egg Beaters of the egg. We also liked that the zucchini was the star of the recipe not the egg. Will make again. Thanks for the post.
