This is the time of year when you realize you may have planted one too many zucchini plants and now your garden is overrun with them.
I didn’t have a garden this year, but luckily I have some great neighbors who have been pleading with me to take some off their hands. Reluctantly I help them out. But what to DO with all of them? We had a great discussion on our facebook page, and I was blown away and inspired by all the different things you can make with zucchini!!
Allow me to share one of my families favorite zucchini dishes. It’s called Zucchini and Cheese (’nuff said). It’s probably the EASIEST recipe known to man. Best part? My hubby likes to play chef and makes it all the time! No complaints there..
Step 1: Put about a teaspoon of butter into your frying pan (use more or less depending on the amount of zucchini you cook). Next, grate your zucchini into the pan and cook at a medium temperature.
Stir occasionally. Not sure if this step is necessary, but it always seems like the right thing to do… ha.
Your zucchini will get all soft and mushy. That’s good! Time for the next step.
Step 2: Add the cheese. In our family’s case, that means a lot of cheese, but add however much you prefer. My daughter just see’s the cheese and forgets about the “green stuff”. I know, tricky tricky.
For extra flavor, we also like to add, diced jalepenos, sausages, and onion flakes. Mmm. Feel free to experiment with different toppings.
Step 3: Serve and enjoy. It’s great by itself, or as a side dish.
That’s it! I know you may be laughing because of how simple this recipe is, (yes, I am calling it a recipe). I love it because I can feel like super mom for a brief moment because dinner can be done in 12.6 minutes.
