Sour Cream Zucchini Casserole Recipe:

I’ve got no shortage of ways to use up zucchini.  My go-to is often Cheesy Zucchini Casserole, but it’s nice to change it up a bit.  That’s why when I found a recipe called Zucchini with Sour Cream in my Savory Sampling Cook Book, I marked it for later.

All of the base ingredients were already in my fridge and cabinet – sour cream, butter, Ritz crackers, shredded cheddar cheese. I tend to gravitate to these types of recipes because I hate having to buy special ingredients that never get used up. What a waste of money!

I love how creamy this zucchini casserole is.  The sour cream and cheddar cheese base coats the cooked zucchini, and then a combination of crushed Ritz crackers, more shredded cheese and butter gives a nice crunchy topping.

This zucchini casserole with Ritz crackers got the seal approval from my hubs and kids. That’s always a relief. Maybe it’s the crunchy, buttery Ritz crackers.  In my opinion, this is the secret to making a kid-friendly casserole.

Try serving this along side a nice piece of grilled meat such as pork steak or T-bone that has been marinated to perfection.
