Zucchini Spoon Bread

Recipe by Barb G.

This spoon bread is delicious, a good way to use those zucchini out of the garden. For extra flavor or heat add 2 or 3 jalapeno peppers. Recipes comes from Betters Homes and Gardens.com. Spoon bread is a side dish, eaten with a spoon. It is called a bread because of the ingredients. Enjoy

I sauted the vegetables in bit of olive oil instead of boiling them, then added some extra milk. I also used low-fat sharp cheddar cheese. It made a great meal together with some beans in mole sauce. My husband described it as "quiche-y" but it was a good balance of heartiness and fresh vegetables. Thanks for a different way to use zucchini.
