Zucchini For Lent

I broke out an old family recipe for my Lenten Friday dinner tonight:


For some reason, I only make zucchini pie {which is much like a casserole} during Lent. I don’t know why this is, considering it’s delish, easy to make and not-so-bad for you. I give it an even health{ier} twist by cutting down the oil to 1/4 cup and using Greek yogurt for the other 1/4 cup. I also go easy on the cheese. Other than that, I follow the recipe as is:

3 cups diced zucchini

4 eggs

1 cup Bisquick or pancake mix

1/2 cup grated cheese

1/2 cup oil

Pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley to taste

Combine ingredients in medium size mixing bowl. Put into greased baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 mins or until golden brown.

Enjoy a slice or two of zucchini pie with a glass of red wine and a salad… yum! This never sticks around long enough in my house to enjoy leftovers. You can find variations of this recipe for zucchini pie on allrecipes.com. I know pizza is a go-to for most people on Fridays during Lent, but I sometimes need to shake it up a bit. Next week on the Friday menu: Fettucini Alfredo.
