Summer Vegetable Cobbler Recipe

Here’s a comforting vegetarian main dish that uses a lot of garden produce. Try different squashes like pattypan and crookneck or zucchini. — Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 small zucchini, sliced

"New family favorite! After eating fried and saut?ed squash all summer, it was time for a change. I made this recipe to use up some veggies from the garden. My husband and I loved it! I did use whole buttermilk instead of regular milk in the recipe. But I do that in almost every recipe that calls for plain milk. Delicious!"

"My husband and I both thought this was delicious. It is a keeper and I will definitely be making it again. Note, I only had half a red pepper so used half an orange pepper (so that I had a whole pepper). Other than that small change followed as written."

"This recipe has a lot of flavor! The topping really brings it all together! I love being able to use up all my zucchini out of the garden! Thank you for finding another unique way to utilize squash! The only changes I made were I used canola oil and skim milk to make it more heart healthy, plus a little tarragon for additional flavor."

"This is the best summer squash bake I've had - by far. I used zuchhini, patty pan, crookneck and straightneck yellow squash - I doubled the squash and the sauce and am glad I did. The filling to biscuit ratio was just right for me and doubling the sauce and even adding a little more water, made the casserole moist, but not watery. I had fresh basil and shredded (not grated) parmesan and the biscuits complimented the filling nicely. Great Recipe. Thanks!"

"This was loved it and said I could make this anytime! I followed the recipe exactly as written. My only suggestion is to chop the veggies and set aside in a bowl. Then prepare the biscuit topping and sauce BEFORE cooking the veggies. In other word have everything ready before doin the veggies. Thanks for the great recipe!"
