Zucchini Brunch Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
After visiting our parents in the country one time, we came home laden with boxes of fresh vegetables. I shared them with a neighbor, who in turn shared this recipe with me. It has become one of our favorites—both to look at and to taste.

Directions

  1. In a skillet, saute zucchini and onion in butter until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Stir in eggs, cheese, parsley, salt, pepper, garlic powder and basil. Separate the crescent rolls and press into a greased 10-in. pie plate to form a crust. Brush crust with mustard. Spoon zucchini mixture into crust. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes.

"Always looking for ways to use zucchini. I used dried parsley flakes and an Italian blend of cheeses that I had on hand. Everyone really liked it. I will be making this again but it took almost double the time to cook. Thanks for sharing this recipe."

"Zucchini is in season and this pie is delicious!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 24, 2014

"This is very tasty. They now sell crescent rolls in a "sheet" form now. Much easier to use for this type of dish, rather than working with individual pieces of dough. I made 2 of these for work and they were gone in minutes."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2013

"Very tasty but I have to point out that the time is WAY off. A total of 20 minutes? Mine wasn't near done. It took 45 minutes. Was this a typo? I'm surprised no one else mentioned it."
