    I'm sure you will get a ton of recipes - all of them better than what I could give. I just wanted to tell you that when I had a garden and had zucchini coming out of my ears (I AM envious of those of you with gardens) I used to grate it up and freeze it in quart bags. Then all winter I had zucchini to use, and use it I did. Of course I used it in bread, but I also added it to ground beef any time I was making meatloaf, meatballs, lasagna, most of time I'd throw a few handfuls into cake batter - zucchini went into almost everything during the winter months. And butternut squash - I would cube it and freeze in quart bags to use for soup.
    Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

    Wish our garden was doing as well as yours! With it being so hot and dry this year, only our early spring items did anything much. All the vining plants dried up pretty quickly. Just a few cucumbers, zucchini and squash for us. I am so disappointed! Enjoy your bumper crop!

    Back when I was gardening I found a bread and butter recipe and they also noted you could use zucchini and yellow squash instead of cukes; you really can't taste the difference when you pickle them. I love them. You can also slice and freeze zucchini and you'll have it all yr.

    This is a recipe that my hairdresser gave me. She's tried it and now her MIL and her are fighting over the zucchini.


    Zucchini Parmesan Crisps

    adapted from Ellie Krieger's recipe in The Food You Crave: Luscious Recipes for a Healthy Life

    •1 lb. zucchini or squash (about 2 medium-sized)
    •1/4 cup shredded parmesan (heaping)
    •1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs (heaping)
    •1 tablespoon olive oil
    •1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    •freshly ground pepper, to taste
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with foil and spray lightly with vegetable spray.

    Slice zucchini or squash into 1/4 inch-thick rounds. Toss rounds with oil, coating well.

    In a wide bowl or plate, combine breadcrumbs, parmesan, salt and pepper.

    Place rounds in parmesan-breadcrumb mixture, coating both sides of each round, pressing to adhere. The mixture will not completely cover each round, but provides a light coating on each side.

    Place rounds in a single layer on baking sheets. Sprinkle any remaining breadcrumb mixture over the rounds.

    Bake for about 22 to 27 minutes, until golden brown. (There is no need to flip them during baking -- they crisp up on both sides as is.)



    I also make fried zucchini often. I just slice the zucchini and toss it with a handful of white corn meal and a handful of flour. I usually add some thinly sliced onion as well. Then, just melt butter in a pan and fry like potatoes..... flip when brown on the edges. My DH loves this.... especially with spaghetti.

    Zucchini Quiche
    Posted by jerseyjan at recipegoldmine.com 6/15/01 7:05:34 pm

    4 eggs
    1 cup Bisquick
    3 zucchini
    1 onion
    1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup vegetable oil

    Grate zucchini (with skin) and grate onion. Mix (by hand) with Bisquick, grated cheese and oil. Beat eggs and pour into mixture and mix well. Pour into a square pan. Do not grease pan. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for about 40 minutes until golden brown on top. Let cool before cutting into squares.

    These squares freeze well and are a quick brunch item with a salad and a cool drink.

    I don't have the recipe with me (at work) but google "Chocolate Zucchini Bread". I made some with my first harvest and ended up eating the whole loaf myself..... not all in one sitting but my husband couldn't get his head around the combination. It's really good.

    i've made this recipe many times too. I just googled "zucchini cobbler" and got several recipes. I make the easiest one which uses cake mix for the topping. I like this better than apple cobbler and it uses up 8 cups of zucchini!!
