Zucchini Quiche Recipe

I love this easy zucchini quiche recipe.  The dried herbs give it such a wonderful flavor, and it’s a great way to use up one of those summer zucchini lingering in your refrigerator.

This cheesy zucchini quiche recipe is similar to one I found in the cookbook, Taste of Home, Most Requested Recipes. However, I made some changes to make it more friendly for my family.

My husband isn’t a big fan of onions, so i left those out and added onion powder instead. If you wanted to use onions, throw them in when you cook the zucchini.

I also used a deep dish pie crust, and added more zucchini than in the original recipe. Another change is swapping mustard which my family isn’t fond of for Worcestershire Sauce. Last of all, I replaced butter with olive oil.

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 baking or use one of those cool pie crust protectors.

Notes About Old Fashioned Zucchini Quiche

  • Slice zucchini thin. A food processor works well.  If you get them a bit thicker, be sure to cook them a bit longer in the skillet to evaporate some of the water in the zucchini.
  • If I do not have onion powder, I often double the amount of garlic powder, or omit it completely.
  • Fresh minced onion or dried minced onion can be used instead of onion powder.
  • If desired, make homemade pie crust. Marie Callender’s frozen pie crust takes as close to homemade as you can get without the work.
  • Or, consider omitting the crust completely for a Zucchini Quiche without pie crust recipe.

We are on the endless quest of finding zucchini recipes during the summer months when the zucchini never seems to stop growing. In the frequently made recipe column is Mom’s Zucchini Bread, Chocolate Zucchini Bread with Mocha Glaze, Cheesy Summer Squash and Zucchini Casserole, and Zucchini Pie, but we are always looking for something new.

  1. 6 cups of zucchini deems disproportional for only 2 eggs. Also, you mention leaving out the onion, but sliced inion is not listed as one of the ingredients, only onion powder.

    1. When you cook down the zucchini, the proportions work much better…it is a zucchini heavy mixture. Sorry about the onion note…our original recipe had onions in it and I missed taking out that note. You can definitely substitute some onion of the onion powder…just cook them down with the zucchini!
