Zucchini Bake

I used a Tipsy Wine Soaked Cheese, it added incredible flavor to the bake. But I also have used other cheese’s and they all taste great. So don’t feel you can’t make if you don’t have that type of cheese. You can use cheddar, Monterey, or any other type.

Do You Serve Zucchini Bake Warm Or Cold

You can serve it hot or cold. I had a few pieces for leftovers that I ate the next day. I think I prefer it hot though. This recipe is a great way to use up the zucchini in your garden this summer.

Best Way to Shred Zucchini 

You can use a classic grater or food processor to shred your zucchini. I leave the skin on the zucchini I find the skins bake nicely and you don’t need to do the extra steps of peeling them. It also adds some color to the zucchini casserole.

Could I Use Sliced Zucchini Instead of Shredded Zucchini

Since you have a flour-based filling, I am not sure it would blend and mix the way it needs to. If it was just a cheesy-egg based mix it would work, but the flour I think would make it bake unevenly. You could try it but I can’t promise success.

How To Make This Cheesy Zucchini Casserole Recipe 

The first step is to shred your zucchini. What I do is set the shredded zucchini on a paper towel to help soak up some of the moisture from it. Then put it in a bowl, add in your eggs, dill, and cheeses. Then add in your flour and mix well. Next toss in the salt and cayenne pepper. Grease your baking dish with butter all over the bottom and sides. Pour in your batter, and dot with butter. Bake until well browned and no longer jiggly.

Can I Double This Zucchini Bake 

Yes. Feel free to double or even triple this recipe if you would like. Simply make as much or little as you would like. Just measure properly and use a larger dish and all will be fine. If you double the recipe you can either make two 8×8 pans or opt for a 9×13 size pan. Just adjust the cooking time to ensure it is fully cooked.

Can You Freeze This Zucchini Recipe 

I am not sure. I would think with all the ingredients you could easily freeze this zucchini bake. Just wrap tightly in aluminum foil or place in an airtight container. Then store for up to three months in the freezer. Thaw the night before in the fridge. To reheat you would cover and toss in the oven and bake until it is heated through.
