Corn bread mix gives this fluffy quiche a slightly sweet flavor you're sure to enjoy. "This is one of my favorite recipes. I serve it with fresh veggies, fruit or slices of zucchini cooked in the microwave until tender," says Melissa Loupe of Thibodaux, Louisiana.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 2, 2013

this is similar to a recipe that my mom gave me many years ago. In that, it called for bisquick in the same amount as the corn muffin mix. I have always enjoyed it and always get good reviews. In the recipes I use, I have shredded, grated, or finely chopped the zucchini, which cooked faster and may allow you to eliminate the cooking of the zucchini. My recipe also called for a small amount of minced or finely chopped onion. I often make this in the summer, topping it with thinly sliced fresh garden tomatoes, spinkled with oregano and topped with shredded cheese. Pop it back in the oven about 5 mins. or until the cheese melts. Can be a side dish or a light main dish. Yummy.

This is so good and easy to make! I served as a side with a BBQ dinner. I took two slices for lunch the next day.

This recipe has become one of my standards! I do find that it bakes better if I've steamed the zucchini first. And it's a great way to use leftover cooked zucchini. I use whatever amount of zucchini I have, which is usually way more than the recipe calls for, and I also add more parm. I bake it in a regular size pie dish and it always comes out perfect. I've used low-fat half and half and evaporated milk, whatever I have, and it's always good!

I made this in individual casserole dishes, which worked perfectly and took about 5 minutes off the baking time. I added fresh thyme which seemed to work well with the zucchini. I made one batch thinking that I would be the only one eating it, but my kids asked for some and loved it! I also used yellow zucchini which looked pretty in this dish
