I have made this recipe two times. The first - per the instructions. It was way to wet, but good flavor. The second time I grated the zucchini and lightly salted it and put it in a collander for about an hour. I squeezed the zucchini at the end of that time before adding it to the recipe. (I had over a cup of liquid!) I also added all the cheese to the mix instead of using half for the top. Now it was great!! Read More

The first time I made this it tasted like a zucchini pound cake! I never knew packaged cornbread mix had sugar in it. Why would anybody do that? The next time I made it using a mix that didn't have sugar in it (Shawnee Mills) and it was great! Added a teaspoon of dried basil and a teaspoon of minced garlic. I also covered the dish with aluminum foil, baked for 45 minutes, then removed the foil and baked for 15 minutes more. A 5 star recipe that is highly recommended once you get rid of the sugar!

Great recipe and good use of zucchini! Light, fluffy, excellent cornbread! Company loved it!!! Update: You must drain the zucchini... lightly salt the zucchini and let sit for 15 min minimally to weep the zucchini. Press out any remaining water before adding it to your mix. Additions you can add to enhance the flavor: grilled corn off the cob, diced sweet red pepper, green ortega chili's, onion, or any type of spicy cheese. Read More

This was a really tasty and useful recipe for the zucchini windfall of the summer garden. Has anyone tried to freeze it? It's a great side, but I liked it as a breakfast item. I followed the recipe except for two things. I added 1 clove of garlic - chopped fine, and I didn't ust a bag of muffin mix. I used 1/2c cornmeal + 1/2c of AP flour + 1tsp baking powder. It was really good & no preservatives. Next time, I'm going to add 1/2c corn kernels. Read More

This recipe was very good, similar to a quiche in flavor and texture. Next time I will try addding bacon and spinach to the mix. It would also be good with Monterey Jack cheese. My suggestions would be: use 1/2-3/4 cup diced onion; be sure to squeeze the water from the grated zucchini before adding (perhaps this is why people are getting gooey results?); add all the cheese except 3/4 cup for topping; and finally wait until the last 15 minutes to add the cheese. I also covered this with tin foil until the end so it would not scorch the top. Will make again, it was very easy. Read More

5/31 made it again. This time subbed SHARP cheddar, 3 green onions and yellow squash 3 cups only, no zuke nor salt nor pepper. Added 1/3 cup heavy cream. Family raved about the changes. Otherwise first time: Good zucchini spoonbread. omitted the basil and it tasted great. Maybe could shorten the baking time because the cheese was so done it created a crust. UPDATE: make a day ahead with changes, heat oven to 350 to warm, cut into squares, arrange in bigger pan uncovered, heat for 30 minutes. Tastes like they have been FRIED!!! omg! Wedding reception guests fought over them. Read More

Strictly for my own notes. Did not have the package of dry mix so made my own, 1 1/2 c cornmeal, 1/2 c flour, 1 t salt, 1 T baking powder, 2 eggs beaten in measuring cup and then added in enough heavy cream to make 1 cup. Added in the cheese to the corn meal and flour mix and the zucchini shreds. Mixed it all together with about 1/4 cup oil and then put in 425* oven in a hot, oiled cast iron skillet and let bake for 30-40 minutes. Served with grilled pork chops, mac and cheese, salad, spinach. Awesome! (We don't care for sweet corn bread) Read More

Awesome with a few modifications. Sliced the squash, and salted it, then laid it out on paper towels to dry out. I used half an onion (and will probably use less next time as I'm not a big onion person), doubled the cheese and mixed in with the rest of the ingredients, added 8oz of sour cream. Baked covered at 350 for an hour, and then broiled for about 10 minutes to make it a little more crisp. Next time I will try a ritz cracker topping. Read More

This recipe came out great! Easy and tasty. Using a combination of yellow squash and zucchini made it prettier, and next time I will add in some red bell pepper as well. I agree that it didn't take 60 minutes, and I would recommend waiting to add the cheese on top until it is almost done baking. Read More
