This is a dense bread that is terrific the next day toasted (in a toaster oven). We liked it plain. It also makes a nice side with turkey if you don't want to do the mashed potato or stuffing thing. Note: when you first stir everything together, the "batter" is going to be crumbly. This is because your zucchini adds the extra moisture needed to achieve a dough-like stage, sort of the same consistency you'd expect when making a meatloaf.

This has got to be the worst thing I have ever mad. The pot belly pig next door did eat it. Try the apple zuchinni it is great.

Great recipe, I added granulated garlic, dried parsley and found that it works best when using two bread pans.

It smelled bad and tasted worse. Try pina coloda zucchini bread instead
