I have frozen these in years with bumper zucchini crops and intend to freeze a couple this week. I freeze them before baking and then just pop them in the oven while they are still frozen and bake for 34-40 minutes.

Yum! Enjoy. This recipe is shared at Life As Mom, Real Food Forager, Simple Lives Thursday and  Food Renegade. For more yummy ideas, check out their blogs!

    Katie, I LOVE LOVE LOVE zucchini! I like it shredded and sauteed with onions and garlic and little cheese, sliced and sauteed with onions and tomatoes, cooked with ground beef and a little lemon, in this zucchini pie, in cake, and this morning I made Life as Mom’s zucchini waffles. Have you checked out her Ultimate Recipe Swap featuring tons of zucchini recipes? Yum, yum, yum. I hope I get a lot more zucchini before the bugs kill all my plants! :-)

      I did check out the recipe swap and added a few of mine too! I never knew I liked zucchini until I started growing it and I am quickly realizing I love it too! I am sitting down to make this one right now, except I don’t have any pie crust on hand so I may make one from scratch. Hopefully I’ll have a yummy picture to post tonight!

    mmmm- this sounds better than the Chicken, zucchini and tomato basil bake I made tonight. I might have to try this one soon.

    I have the exact same recipe except it calls for crescent rolls for the crust. I am going to give it a try with a pie crust. Love your blog, BTW!
