I did review this recipe already but after reading everyone else's reviews I'd like to add something. I guess it could be considered bland so add some pepperoni next time. Also you MUST increase the temp to 450 to brown it. It's just a pile of mush if it isn't browned. Trust me! Read More

I added bacon since it sounded like mini quiches. I wiped grease off w/a paper towel. It went over good at a family gathering. Read More

First this seems a better side dish than appetizer. It is a bit greasy and rather bland. The parmasan "crust" was a good idea. The filling just doesn't live up to it though. I wish I'd done what another reviewer suggested and made a batch ahead of time. I would NOT have made this to take to a party. But now I'm stuck! Read More

This took much longer than I expected. I needed a "finger food" for a reception. I followed the recipe to the letter and it turns out so terribly greasy that I had to throw the whole thing out! I didn't want any "fingers" on this mess! Read More

I make this every summer when I have more zucchini from the garden than I know what to do with. After making it a couple of times exactly as stated I tried turning up the heat like some others suggested. I turn the oven up to 360º and watch it closely to make sure it doesn't get too brown. I also saute the onions and more garlic first. Since it seems a little too greasy I will try decreasing the oil next time to 1/4 cup or less. And if you turn up the oven temp. you can forget toasting the sesame seeds beforehand since they will get brown. I also add more bread crumbs 1/2 to 3/4 cup. Read More

This was an awful greasy tasteless mess!!! It took almost an hour to prep with all the grating and it had no taste. I made this for a party and ended up bringing doughnuts because I was too embarrased to bring this concoction. Read More
