Whether I'm preparing a sit-down dinner at home or attending a potluck buffet, family and friends have come to expect my signature vegetable dish.


  • 5 medium zucchini (about 2 pounds), diced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles
  • 4 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. In a large saucepan, cook zucchini in boiling water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes; drain. Cool for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; whisk in milk until smooth. Beat in eggs and chiles. Stir in cheese and zucchini.
  2. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Toss bread crumbs and butter; sprinkle over zucchini mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 40-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean and edges are lightly browned. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
