Mmm... buttery bread cubes & cheesy zucchini. An easy to prepare side dish.
- 4 slices bread, cubed
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 2 cups zucchini, cubed
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- Preheat oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F), and place bread cubes in a medium bowl and pour the melted butter over bread cubes.
- Add the zucchini, onion, garlic salt and egg and mix well, then transfer the mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish and top with the cheese.
- Bake, covered, in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Then uncover the dish and bake for another 30 minutes.
This was delicious! I halved the recipe and used shredded zucchini instead of diced. I baked it a little longer to get the zucchini softer--I like my zucchini very soft. I intended to take it to work for lunch, but it smelled and looked sooo good coming out of the oven that I had to sample some then and there!
This would also be really good with some potato shreds instead of the bread, using the shredded zucchini, to make it like a potato casserole texture.
This is phenomenal! So glad to find it to help use up our bumper crop of zukes. I didn't have four slices of bread, so I ended up using two slices of bread and a cup of croutons (garlic and butter flavor), so used less butter as well. Already have requests to make it again! Thanks!
Yum, yum, yum! I doubled this recipe, because I had loads of zucchini. It's super easy to make and tastes awesome. I sauteed my zucchini and onions in the butter before stirring everything together. Because I did that, I only needed to bake it half the time (uncovered). Since I doubled it, I put half the cheese right in the casserole and the other half on top. Loved it! I'll use this recipe again; thanx!
