#Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and Zucchini Pie...

Monday, July 29, 2013

If you planted zucchini in your garden this year, then you're always looking for MORE zucchini recipes.  And even if you don't have a garden, chances are you know someone who has an abundance of zucchini from THEIR garden and you're looking for a new recipe.

Zucchini Pie...





The other day I went out into our garden and found these...


Thankfully a friend of mine posted a delicious new recipe she found at her local farmer's market
for Zucchini Pie.   I made it for dinner that evening.   It was amazing.  

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups thinly sliced zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped onion  (I omitted)
  • 1/2 cup butter (I only used 3 TBS.)
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley or 2 T flakes
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. pepper
  • 1/4 t. garlic powder
  • 1/4 t. basil
  • 1/4 t. oregano (I omitted)
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 8 oz. crescent roll package
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella or muenster (I used mozzarella AND Parmesan)
  • 2 t. Brown Mustard
In a frying pan, melt the butter and add the zucchini
and onion; if using.  Cook for about ten minutes.  
The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup of butter.  You do NOT need that much butter.
I only used 3 TBS and it was fine.  Use your judgement.


Add the spices, salt and pepper.

Remove from heat. 

Open up the crescent rolls and spread them into the bottom of a
9X12 baking dish, pressing the seams together.   Spread the mustard on top of the crescent rolls.

Combine the eggs and cheese together and add to the zucchini mixture.
Do not add the egg and cheese mixture while the zucchini is cooking. 
You will have scrambled eggs.  
Let the mixture cool down just a few minutes before adding the eggs and cheese.    
Once everything is combined, spread the entire mixture evenly 
on top of the crescent rolls.  

I also sprinkled Parmesan Cheese on top before baking.


Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until the mixture is set.
You may need to cover the pie with aluminum foil during the
last ten minutes of cooking.  


Slice and enjoy...


Enjoy your day!
