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.

    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.

    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.

    1. We loved the recipe. I had friends over for dinner and they thoroughly enjoyed it as well. I used rice flour my zucchinis were quite large, so I only used two. Next time I think I will make it up ahead of time and freeze it and bake it when I have company. I used fresh dill.

    2. Hello. Trying cheesy zucchini bake but how many cups of grated zucchini? I have small & really large zucchini. Is recipe based on store bought size? Thanks
