Zucchini Pie Recipe

 

Out of all the things that I cook, this Zucchini Pie Recipe is the number one recipe that I get asked to share!
My mother in law gave me this recipe over 15 years ago and I have been making it ever since. It has become a favorite side at Thanksgiving and an easy weeknight meal with the addition of a salad and some bread.

I shortened the recipe a bit to fit on our custom recipe towel but have written it in detail below. Enjoy!

Ingredients

4 large zucchinis, shredded

1 onion, finely chopped

1 cup Bisquick

4 eggs, lightly beaten

1 stick melted butter

3/4 – 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp Season Salt

Large handful parsley, finely chopped

salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13 x 19 inch baking dish.
  2. In a food processor, shred zucchini. You can also shred zucchini with a hand shredder. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. In a food processor fitted with a blade, pulse onion and parsley until very finely chopped or even almost pureed. You can also chop both the onion and parsley by hand but I have found the food processor to be faster and I prefer the texture. Transfer into the bowl with zucchini.
  4. Lightly beat eggs in a small bowl.
  5. Add Bisquick, melted butter, parmesan cheese, eggs, season salt, salt and pepper to your bowl with the shredded zucchini, onion and parsley. Mix
  6. Add mixture to your greased baking dish and bake for 40. minutes or until lightly brown on the top.

You can make a day ahead if serving as a Thanksgiving side and reheat at 325

1. Make your very own cute shark out of paper! All you need is glue, scissors, a couple clothespins and some heavy paper for this jawesome shark craft.

2. Dress up your pet! The cat dressed as a shark riding a Roomba is one of the all time great vids, re-enact in in your own home with this shark hat for your shark-cat!

3.Claim your piece of the beach in true shark style! Go for a swim with our Personalized Shark Bait Beach Towel ($40).

4. Enjoy some screen and maybe some screams by watching a shark movie – our vote is obviously Shark Tale for family movie night, and after the kiddos hit the hay you can go with the obvious choice, Jaws, or one of the many newer, even scarier shark flicks: Deep Blue Sea (sharks and Samuel L. Jackson? um, yes please), Open Water (almost too terrifying!), Sharknado (no comment necessary), or 2016’s The Shallows.

5. Feast like a shark on this shark shaped fruit salad! Celebrate the yummy fruits of summer by making this scarily delicious Sharkmelon!
