"This is from my neighbour and good friend, Ronnie, who is mother to five great kids. They all love this concoction and so do we. It serves 6-7 unless it is put in front of our former French exchange student, Emma. In that case, it serves one."
Serving Size: 1 (210 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"A great way to use up you overload of zucchini.
Except for leaving the zucchini to drain for a whil after grating, I followed the recipe exactly.
This is really a crustless quiche and so easy to make and so delicious to eat.
Except for DH who hates zucchini to the max, everyone loved it.
Thanks Peg for another wonderful way to use zucchini."
"Excellent and a great way to use the Zucchini from the garden. I made this as directed but slightly cooked the bacon in the microwave for 3 minutes before adding to the mix. I'll be serving this at my niece's wedding shower brunch next weekend. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT #6 - Zee Zesties 2010 :)"
"Well, none left. I mean it, this flew off the table like a potato on an ice cream cone. My youngsters ate this so fast, you might of thought it had 'Snickers" in the middle. The only change I made was browning thinly sliced zucchini in the bacon grease, draining on paper towels and adding them right along from there. I used the microwave to cook the inside, and then browned it under the oven broiler for about 5 minutes on low. Terrififff!! Made for ZWT 6 - Zee Zesties - 2010"
"Easy to put together and delicious! Similar to other breakfast casseroles or crustless quiches, but we like the added veggies, with the zucchini in it. Will definitely make again. Made for ZWT6 2010."
"I'm glad to have stumbled across this recipe. It's easy family fare or a delicious & attractive company dish. Even zucchini haters will like this one. Thank you, Leggy Peggy and Ronnie."
"My friend Zan gave me this recipe and I have made it several times, it is a winner. Thanks for posting the recipe Peggy, it is definitely worth 5 stars."
"Peggypoo.....this took a lot longer to cook...it was in there nearly 1 hour when I left. It was in a 9x13" pan. Not sure if I had 12 oz zucchini or more (3 medium). But it finished cooking, is beautiful & we'll have it for breakfast, lol! BUT!!! IT IS DEEEELICIOUS!! made for ZWT4. xoxo"
"Really enjoyed this. It pulled together super quick and cooked perfectly. I cut the recipe in half, so it fit perfectly in a deep dish pie plate and it only needed 30 minutes in the oven. Fed 4 people with a side dish. I took another reviewers recommendation and through in some shredded carrot which gave it nice flavor. And only had about 1 tbsp of cooked crumbled bacon so I threw that in and it was enough to give the casserole a nice mild smoky flavor. This reminds me of a bisquik casserole. Made for ZWT4. Will be making again!"
"Easy to throw together and I didn't even pull out the food processor. Dd loved it and gave it "20 million stars and I don't even like zucchini!" Dh and I thought it was tasty, but would like it better with more zucchini and less egg. One tip--if you don't have self-rising flour, just use 1 cup all purpose flour, 1/2 T baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt."
"Oh yum! We just finished off the leftovers last night and I wish I could make again tonight! I am always looking for ways to cook zucchini as it is one of the few veggies that my kids like. They LOVED this ! I did reduce the amount of oil to 1/4 cup and used olive oil as opposed to vegetable oil (personal preference). This is a definite week night keeper. Thanks Leggy Peggy! Made for ZWT4 Eastern Europe"
"Made for ZWT4...This was amazing!! I have 3 zucchini haters in my family and they all devoured it. I will make this over and over since I love zucchini. I finally have a way that my family will eat it."
"Yummy-ola!!! Made as written, except I used one dark green zucchini and one yellow summer squash....very pretty! Used bacon that had been fried earlier in the day, so just crumbled it into pieces. I think if you added a whole POUND of bacon this would serve very well for BREAKFAST, too. Will keep this on hand now that we're in the full bloom of summer....as soon as the zucchini come on-line, will give away extras WITH this recipe. Going to send the recipe to my mother, too. KEEPER!!! *Made for ZWT4 Eastern Europe*"
"This recipe is wonderful! Not being a veggie fan I approached it with some trepidation, but was oh so pleasantly surprised. I made the following changes: I grated two carrots into the mix and omitted the oil, and used about 1/2 the flour stated. It is full of flavour, so easy to make and best of all we had leftovers for lunch! This would be perfect for fussy kids too! Great for a main dish with crsuty bread or as a side dish with just about anything. Thanks for sharing Leggy Peggy. I'll be making this again and again."
"YESSS! I found it... this recipe is pretty much the only way I like to eat "courgettes" (as us, weird french people use to call it)that's one off 3 recipes, I still have to find the famous Irish stew and the internationaly successful "home made muesli" from Leggy Peggy. Trust me with this recipe even a narrow-minded teenager would eat zucchini...(and that's quiete an achievment)"
"I completely forgot the oil and yet this was still totally delicious. I must say, I was so tempted to spruce it up with some herbs and spices, etc. But luckily I was feeling lazy. Because just as written (except for the oil LOL) it was perfect! I loved how everything just went in the bowl, no pesky sauteeing or anything and yet it was so delish. Will be making this again!"
"This is a really tasty dish. I really liked how easy it is to prepare. The bacon adds a nice flavor. I love zucchini and am always looking for new recipes. I will make this again."
"After getting off to a rocky start and speaking with Peggie I enjoyed this. If you use the processor only use it for chopping the veggies, not for blending everything, lol. It's a very tasty and easy recipe that comes together quickly. You'll get very generous servings. I made a single serving that gave me dinner last night and this mornings breakfast! Talk about versatile, you have it here (I even think it would be a good sandwich filling). Thank you Peggie."
"Every now and then a great recipe comes along that is a sure crowd pleaser. This is one of those! First bite and you say, "Oh My!" My hard to please family said it should get 10 stars!!! This disappeared in a hurry. Next time I may have to double the recipe. Thanks for a keeper that I know will make many reappearances at our table!"
