Use some of your garden bounty to whip up this zesty quiche-like casserole that teams zucchini with cheese, onion, egg and jalapeno pepper. Dolores Kitzinger of Appleton, Wisconsin sent in the recipe. "You could serve it as a meatless main dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner," she notes.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, beat the egg, oil, salt and pepper. Add the zucchini, jalapeno and onion; stir to coat. Stir in biscuit mix and cheese.
  2. Pour into a 15-oz. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
