Reviews for Zucchini Onion Pie
"I love this "pie"! I have made it per the original recipe with oil and 1 cup baking mix and per the reviews with milk instead of oil and a little more baking mix. Both ways end up tasting great. The only changes I make are to use shredded zucchini instead of sliced and a generous 1 tsp of Italian seasoning instead of parsley. I use any shredded cheese I have on hand, usually an Italian blend. I also add a little bit of cayenne pepper (less than 1/4 tsp) or hot sauce (a few shakes) for just a hint of spice. I have found that it takes about 40-45 minutes to cook and brown up nicely. If using shredded zucchini, make sure to squeeze most of the moisture out with paper towel before adding it to the bowl."
"Very good recipe and great to use up all of that zucchini! I added a bit more garlic and used half Parmesan, half sharp cheddar cheese."
"I've made this recipe several times. It's a winner and that's why I keep coming back to it. Great for gatherings where you need a dish to pass. I've also done it with broccoli and cheddar cheese. Love recipes like this that are so versatile."
"I made this last week and it was terrific. I did make some changes after reading the reviews - I added an extra 1/2 cup biscuit mix - some Italian seasonings, used 1/2 milk for the oil and grated my zuc. I've already passed the recipe on to 6 of my friends along with a fresh picked zuc and fresh garlic.... Very YUMMY........ A KEEPER......"
"i loved it but my Quaker meeting said they preferred quiche-i used Parmesan and cheddar cheese-i liked the firmer texture (as opposed to the softer texture of quiche) cant please everyone-but i'll definitely make it again for myself"
"What a delicious way to use zucchini! I used vegetable oil instead of canola oil, 1 teaspoon of dried parsley flakes instead of fresh parsley, no garlic, 2 teaspoons of dried minced onion instead of fresh and I added the kernels from an ear of corn I had leftover. WOW!!! I'll be making this again for sure!!!"
"Delicious and easy! I used cheddar instead of parmesan, but I think any kind of cheese would be good. I added cooked bacon pieces, which my husband requested and liked."
"I added Italian sausage and changed the cheese to cheddar. Family preferences. My son loved it so much I had to give the recipe to his wife. 1 daughter liked and 1 didn't. I liked it, but not as much as my son. I will probably make it again one day, just not real soon since my 1 daughter doesn't like it (VERY picky) and it's too much for 2 people."
"We loved this. Used yellow squash instead of zucchini since the zucchini at the farmer's market were about baseball bat size. It was delicious. I might saute the onions next time--and there will be a next time soon."
