My garden is doing splendidly. I’ve been harvesting way more than I can use myself. I know better but I planted two zucchini. I think it’s the perpetual problem of every gardener. We love zucchini and are afraid that one won’t come up so we plant two.
I do it every year and every year I vow not to do it anymore. Well, this year it’s worse than ever. I had a volunteer squash come up. It must have reseeded itself from last year. I was hoping it was a winter squash. No luck…It was a zucchini. So…now I have THREE zucchini plants. That’s two too many zucchini plants…and it’s many too many zucchini.
So what is a girl to do…find some recipes…and pedal them off to any takers.
I am a sucker for buying magazine with garden recipes. I bought one years and years ago and it had a section for squash in the magazine. They listed a recipe for Zucchini Pizza. It sounded promising so I gave it a try…but in the end, I modified it. It goes something like this:
Take 3 cups of shredded zucchini with liquid pressed out of it.
Add 3 beaten eggs, 1/2 cup of flour, 1/2 t. basil, 1/2 t. oregano and 1/4 t salt. Mix and put in greased pan.
Bake at 450 for 10 minutes.
Then add pizza sauce and topping along with cheese. Bake at 350 until you like the color of the cheese.
Ours looked like this…
The childcare kiddos ate the part without olives. I’m the olive and onion girl. We had ham and pepperoni on it too.
I was surprised. I thought the childcare kiddos wouldn’t like it…but three of the four that were here ate it. That’s pretty good.
I did like it and plan to make it again.
I’ll be looking for a few other recipes to get me through the season…this was a great start!!
