Yum! I mixed it up the night before, let it sit out for 15 minutes in the morning, added the bread cubes, and let it sit while the oven heated. I will add a little more seasoning next time.
Made this for my Sunday School class and it was a hit! I prepared it the night before with 12 eggs instead of 8 and cooked Italian sausage. Probably sprinkled a bit more cheese too!! Morning of, I pulled it out of fridge for 20 min to get the chill off and baked at 375 for around 40 min. Delicious! Keeper! Thanks!
Love it! I didn’t have the right tomatoes (or enough) so I halved a pint of cherry tomatoes and put them in rows seed-side up on the top. Then dotted more ricotta in between the tomatoes. Looked gorgeous AND tasted great.
I don’t think I have ever had a recipe from Simply Recipes that I would not make again but this is the one. Did not puff up, did not brown, bread was little tough chunks. Kept looking to see if I missed something…I don’t think so. Flavor was good but not the texture. As I keep looking I see the bread cubes needed to be wetted…so there will be a next time
Hi Melinda, so you didn’t moisten the bread cubes? That would explain the bread chunks being tough.
Delicious. Made it for a teacher appreciation breakfast. Was a hit! Many requests for the recipe.
I’m so glad you liked it Julie!
I’ve made this recipe in the past and absolutely loved it!
I’m wondering if it would be possible to make this in a crockpot? Would you add or change anything so you could throw this in a crockpot and have it ready in the morning (about 8 hours later)?
Hi, Sarah! Hmm… this is an interesting question! I haven’t done many casseroles baked in the slow cooker, so I’m not sure I can advise. If you’ve made other crockpot casseroles, you can probably use those same instructions for cooking this recipe. I feel more confident recommending that you make the casserole ahead of time as instructed and then reheat it in the morning — this casserole reheats very well! Enjoy!
My mom grows massive zucchini and I’ve gotta figure out how to use them with out getting bored. Been sitting on one left not knowing what to do with it. Then an opportunity for Brunch arose and wallah! here I am. Um SUPER YUM! My girl friends both loved it, got seconds, and took left overs home to their hubbies. I added some chopped green onions to it, and sadly had to go with the Basil I dried from the garden this summer, as its winter in Michigan, fresh basil is a over priced if you can even find it.
I used cherry tomatoes instead and didn’t drain them. The bread I had was a sourdough bowl which turned out great. Next time I’m adding sausage or bacon, but it was still tasty without meat!
This was deliciously flavorful! Didnt have day old bread so used croutons which worked great!
I like the combinations, but I don’t do bread. Think it would work without it? More like a frittata?
Hi Deniseregina, yes, that would make it more frittata-like. You might also look at this zucchini tomato quiche recipe, and try making it without the crust: https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/zucchini_tomato_quiche/
I have made mock pineapple from those big zucchini. Shred it for crushed pineapple, cube the zuke for pineapple chunks or cut in half lengthwise, hollow our ( if the seeds are big I roast like pumpkin seeds) cut in half moons for a form of pineapple rings Look the recipe up on line
Wow, wondrous plant that can produce 2 zhucchinis a day! Here in my part of the world zucchinis are quite costly.
but the vegetables gave out some extra water after cooking
took a while to brown
next time i think i’ll salt them a little bit
Could you give instructions on reheating or baking ahead of time? Thanks!
Could you make this the night before and bake in the morning?
A quickie side dish. Slice zucchini in coins into a microwavable baking dish. sprinkle on a dash of garlic powder and celery salt. Cover Zap about 3-4 minutes, depending on amount in dish. Remove from oven, scatter with fresh grated cheddar or Parmesan. Recover and let sit a couple minutes before serving.
Thanks for sharing your recipe Lou!
My brother planted this year and is overwhelmed with Zucchini, guest who gets the over flow. So this recipe is greatly appreciated. The Yummly recipe for Easy bake Zucchini bread was a hit, all raves about how delicious.. So thank you again!
I plan on making this as it sounds great. I will make a breakfast by adding sausage.
When we had a summer home, we were overrun with zucchini. We made zucchini pickles (from a cucumber recipe) and zucchini relish from the older, large one. I can pass these along if you want.
