This turned out very nice. I liked the mustard flavor. I didn't have quite enough zucchini so added some sauteed mushrooms. I used mozzarella and a cheddar-jack mix. Thanks Lisa!
This was wonderful! I couldn't get the dough here so I used a shortcrust pastry. I added cheddar cheese, a favourite for us. This was so delicious hot and cold. Thanks for posting, Lennie.
This recipe is from the 1980 Pillsbury Bake-Off. I've been making this for years and LOVE IT!. Use a slotted spoon to put the cooked zucchini in the egg/cheese mixture before you put it in the pie crust if the mixture looks too "drippy". Thanks for posting this - the recipe card from my recipe box is very old and used!!!
