Zucchini Breakfast Bake

My neighbor has dropped by a couple times with zucchini from her garden. I have been trying to make some different dishes with it and I made this casserole a few days ago. The recipe is similar to a crustless quiche but the pancake mix that is stirred in reduces how eggy the casserole tastes. It is great for a brunch but also excellent for dinner. This recipe is adapted from Artsy Foodie.

  1. What an outstanding meal. I love that you made zucchini a star for breakfast. 🙂

  2. I absolutely adore this dish, but I am constantly getting confused with the name, in the UK the zucchini is known as the courgette and the name is completely different.

  3. I’ve made this four times now and the latest time I made it in a glass pan. I would not recommend doing that. The outside cooked too quickly and the inside was barely done. The product had a crusty outside. Otherwise it’s a great recipe for any meal!

  4. I made this today with a pie crust and it was a big hit. Thank you for the recipe 😉
