Cheesy Zucchini Pie Recipe

For a light lunch or brunch that costs just 76 cents per serving, fix this quiche-like dish made with crescent roll dough. "This zucchini pie is delicious, easy and inexpensive," writes Melissa Collins from South Daytona, Florida.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 3 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

Directions

  • 1. Separate crescent dough into eight triangles; place in a greased 9-in. pie plate with points toward the center. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of plate to form a crust; seal perforations.
  • 2. In a large skillet, saute zucchini and garlic in butter until crisp-tender. Add the parsley, dill, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup cheese. Spoon into the crust. Pour eggs over top; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • 3. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.
