Baked Zucchini for breakfast? Yes, please! It’s more like an egg-based casserole filled with roasted zucchini and lots of cheese. You’ll love each savoury bite!
I wasn’t a big fan of zucchini for a long time. My grandma used to make zucchini bread which I always turned my nose up at. I have her handwritten recipe still so I’ll make it for the blog soon. When I turned 20, my hate for veggies faded and zucchini quickly became one of my favourites.
Zucchini is full of vitamins and minerals and should be included in a healthy diet. I’m always excited for zucchini season when I see the ginormous garden zucchini in the grocery store. I can buy it throughout the year though, but it might be a little smaller when it’s not in season.
This Baked Zucchini is super simple to make. It’s great to serve for breakfast or as a veggie side dish. I especially love the buttery flavour the Ritz crackers add to the dish.
My friend, Becky, wasn’t a fan of the texture which is on the soft side. Remember, it’s egg-based. She did, however, say that the flavour was delicious.

I think if my grandma were still alive that she would approve of this recipe. She used to say that she would try anything at least once. I told her she would be a good candidate on Fear Factor and she laughed. Growing up during the depression made her appreciate food on her plate, no matter what it was.
