I look forward to midsummer, when the zucchini is ready and I can prepare this yummy quiche. The crust is made with convenient refrigerated crescent rolls. My family has been enjoying this quiche for years. - Sheri Krueger Black Creek, Wisconsin

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min.
MAKES: 6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 6 bacon strips, diced
  • 3 cups thinly sliced zucchini (about 1-1/4 pounds)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil

Directions

  1. Separate crescent dough into eight triangles; place in a greased 10-in. pie plate with points toward the center. Press dough onto the bottom and up the sides of plate to form a crust; seal perforations. Spread with mustard.
  2. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute zucchini and onion in drippings until tender. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, cheese, seasonings, bacon and zucchini mixture. Pour into crust.
  3. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cover edges loosely with a foil if pastry browns too quickly. Yield: 6-8 servings.

MY REVIEW

"I found this recipe through TOH several years ago and it has been a hit with with everyone. We have made it many times! Truly Delicious and a great way to use up zucchini! Sometimes we have a little trouble getting the middle done, just wrap with crust with foil if it is starting to get too brown and put it in longer."
