Ingredients
  • 6 cups zucchini washed and thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 deep dish pie crust frozen
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add zucchini, sauté until tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat, and drain if a lot of oil remains. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, oregano, Worchestershire sauce, and black pepper.
  4. Add shredded mozzarella and zucchini and stir until incorporated.
  5. Pour into frozen pie crust.
  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until crust is golden brown, and a toothpick comes out clean. It may be necessary to cover loosely with foil the last 10 minutes of cooking to prevent over-browning.

  7. Let rest 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving.
Recipe Notes
  • This tasty zucchini quiche is perfect for breakfast, brunch or lunch as a side dish.
  • One important note...you'll notice our crust always gets a bit browner than planned so if you want a perfect crust, you may want to cover loosely with foil for the last 10 minutes of backing or use one of those cool pie crust protectors.
  • Not a big fan of onions, leave them out and add onion powder instead. If you wanted to use onions, throw them in when you cook the zucchini.
  • We also used a deep dish pie crust, and added more zucchini than in the original recipe.
  • Another change is swapping mustard which her family isn't fond of for Worcestershire Sauce. Last of all, we replaced butter for olive oil.
