Zucchini Quiche

zucchini

This is a recipe my great aunt used to make and I continue to make for my family. It is fast and easy to make and tastes great! It’s not exactly a “quiche”, it is much fluffier and has no crust. I usually serve it with a side salad. The amount this recipe makes is usually devoured by my family of four in one sitting.

Ingredients:

3-4 cups zucchini
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs
1 cup Bisquick
Dash of pepper
Chopped parsley fresh or dried

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix together zucchini, cheese, onions and oil
Beat eggs one at a time and then add the four beaten eggs to the mixture
Mix in other ingredients
Put in a greased 13x9x2 pan for 45 mins. When done, should look fluffy and be golden brown on top as pictured.

Notes:

I have used a mixture of both green zucchini and yellow squash and it comes out just as good.
Any oil will work with this recipe, I’ve used olive, vegetable and canola in the past.
There is no salt added in this recipe. I like salt and feel it is a little blah without, so I will add some in the mixture and then on the quiche before I eat it.

Because “Bisquick” is used in this recipe, I did a quick search to make sure I wasn’t plagiarizing a recipe even though this one came out of the family recipe box. I found an extremely similar recipe on the Betty Crocker website. My great aunt probably got it off a Bisquick box long ago, some people on the website commented they have been making it since the 1970’s. Their recipe differs slightly adding more spices, you can find it by clicking this picture: a49e582b-e80a-445e-9179-f131e0f2cc07
