Even people who don’t like zucchini can’t seem to get enough of this full-flavored side dish. I always bring it to our family gatherings and potlucks because it goes well with any entree. —Cathy Johnston, Ranchester, Wyoming

Ingredients

  • 6 medium zucchini, diced (about 6 cups)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Velveeta
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley or 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute zucchini in 2 tablespoons butter until crisp-tender; drain well. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Stir in the zucchini and remaining butter. Transfer to an ungreased 2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
Soft Bread Crumbs
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
