Here is a delicious zucchini pie recipe. This recipe is quite similar to a quiche but it is crustless. You still get the satisfaction that you would from a crust because there is Bisquick in the zucchini casserole itself. It is great comfort food and you can serve it as a breakfast dish or a dinner side dish. This Bisquick zucchini pie is easy to make with very little prep work and a short cook time. It is one of my favorite zucchini recipes.
This time of year, you are likely to be having an abundance of zucchini coming from your garden. Here is one fun way to enjoy your bumper crop of zucchini which is a healthy vegetable choice. Fresh zucchini are full of phytonutrients, minerals and vitamin C. I hope you enjoy this zucchini casserole or as we call it in my family, crustless zucchini pie.
Bisquick Zucchini Pie Recipe (AKA Zucchini Casserole and Zucchine Quiche)
This zucchini recipe came from my great grandmother, so from my family to yours, enjoy!
- My grandmother always used all zucchini in her bisquick zucchini quiche and that is my favorite. I have tried it before though with half fresh zucchini and half yellow squash and that is a great recipe too. This yellow squash zucchini mixture does work just fine and still tastes great!
- If you are out of parsley, feel free to substitute fresh basil or dried basil in this savory pie.
- As far as the onion goes, yellow, white, or red onion will all work just fine. Also a small onion will work just fine as will a large onion. Don’t sweat that too much! You could even substitute one cup of green onions in a pinch!
- While you could use a food processor to slice the zucchini if you have that attachment, chopping them by hand works just as well.
- You can bake in a glass 9 by 9 pie plate, metal pie pan, baking pan or a casserole dish. They will all work just fine. I used a 9 by 12 Corningware casserole dish.
- Don’t forget to grease your pan. You can use a vegetable cooking spray or olive oil or butter, as you prefer.
- You can set a little of the called for cheese aside and after your batter has gone into the pan, sprinkle your reserved parmesan on top. I did not this in the photos but it does brown up nicely if you like it that way.
- Speaking of cheese, if you are a huge cheese lover, feel free to add in 1/3 cup of cheddar cheese along with the parmesan for even more cheesy flavor in this bisquick zucchini bake!
Zucchini Pie Bisquick Ingredient Checklist:
- 3 cups of sliced zucchini
- 1 medium onion
- 1 cup Bisquick (or biscuit mix)
- 4 large eggs
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil (or olive oil)
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon parsley flakes or finely chopped fresh parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
How To Make Zucchini Pie With Bisquick:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Slice thin and dice the zucchini and the onion.
- In a large bowl, combine zucchini with the onion, biscuit mix, eggs, oil, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper and mix together until zucchini is evenly coated. My grandmother’s recipe calls for grated parmesan cheese but I prefer to use Locatelli grated pecorino Romano cheese. They both taste delicious so use what you have on hand.
- Pour mixture into a prepared baking dish such as buttered pie plate or casserole dish. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.
- Serve zucchini pie Bisquick warm and enjoy!
