The most fun for me today was making brunch for Bill and Alan to enjoy while they watched football and stayed away from the cookie party.
I made chocolate chip muffins.
Oops. Forgot to take a photo of the cheese grits. Trust me--they were good. But here's the smoked corn salad.
And the zucchini pie.
Here's the recipe for the zucchini pie. It's great.
1 ½ lbs. zucchini, grated and drained
1 medium onion, chopped fine
½ lb. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
¼ lb. swiss cheese, grated
4 eggs, beaten
½ c. half and half
1 T. flour
¼ tsp. salt
black pepper to taste
Saute onion in butter until golden. Mix cheese with zucchini and onion. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into a
9 inch greased pie plate. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until center is set.
Note: Maybe the cooking time will work for you, but my oven is terrible. I bake it for about an hour and then broil it.
The draining of the zucchini is a very important step. Zucchini has a lot of water in it. Here's what was in the bowl after I drained mine. Doesn't this look refreshing?
Anyway, that's what they were having.
