Zucchini Cheesy Bread

This Italian inspired ‘tear and share’ bread is not to be missed. These tasty morsels can be enjoyed on a picnic, as an appetizer during a dinner party or simply as a lunch time snack.

Makes: 4 servings

Takes: 50 minutes

  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3 c. shredded mozzarella, divided
  • 1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 c. cornstarch
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp. Freshly Chopped Parsley
  • Marinara, for dipping

Preheat oven to 425º and line a baking sheet with parchment. On a box grater or in a food processor, grate zucchini. Using cheesecloth or a dish towel, wring excess moisture out of zucchini.

Transfer zucchini to a large bowl with eggs, garlic, oregano, 1 cup mozzarella, Parmesan, and cornstarch and season with salt and pepper. Stir until completely combined.

Transfer “dough” to prepared baking sheet and pat into a crust. Bake until golden and dried out, 25 minutes.

Sprinkle with remaining 2 cups mozzarella, crushed red pepper flakes, and parsley and bake until cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes more.

Slice and serve with marinara.
