"I cut this recipe in half. Adding the zucchini makes the biscuits so moist. I kept the leftovers in the refrigerator and served them warm the next day with melted cheese in the middle. Thank you Jean for sharing this recipe."

"I made these tonight with dinner, very simple and easy. Meant to add minced garlic, but still very very good. My picky husband even liked them. Amazing that they are made with zucchini. You wouldn't know it if I didn't tell him. Have a garden and always looking for recipes for zucchini. Will make again!!!!"

"I also add one clove of garlic and saute with the onion & butter. They remind me of the Cheddar Biscuits from Red Lobster!! We grow, shred, and freeze our own Zucchini then we can eat these biscuits all winter long!"
