Squares were a hit!!!!

(don't they look yummy!)

This post is a continuation of Zucchinis out the Wazoo.  Last night I had the opportunity to try the Zucchini squares recipe and Mmmmmm Mmmm Mmmmm they were yummy.  A nice blend of zucchini and Parmesan cheese mixed with onion garlic and bit of parsley.  Definitely an easy recipe worth recommending.  Only thing I wasn't crazy about is that the recipe calls for Bisquick mix.........but the girl who posted the recipe said her grandmother always used to make these and because it was her grandmothers recipe she didn't want to mess with it and she was posting it as is........Fair enough......I feel family recipes need to be respected, even if they're not my family recipes :-)

Here's what you need:

5 eggs, lightly beaten
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup grated Romano cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon seasoned salt
½ teaspoon dried oregano
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup finely chopped yellow onion
2 cups Bisquick
3 cups thinly sliced zucchini......I thinly sliced about 1 cup of zucchini and Grated the other 2 cups
Here's how you do it:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
2. Grease a 9×13 pan and set aside.
3. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, oil, Romano cheese, parsley, salts, oregano and garlic powder. Whisk in the onion, and then the Bisquick. With a rubber spatula, gently stir in the sliced zucchini, being careful not to break up the slices. Turn the mixture into the pan and smooth the top.
4. Bake until puffed and golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool to warm room temperature before serving.
5. *optional* I sprinkled freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top of the zucchini squares and then let them cool

For any of you wondering I got this recipe off of Food Buzz.  There are a ton of other food blogs there.  I came accross one blog called the browneyedbaker and she had posted this recipe which she had found going through her grandmothers old recipes

I hope you enjoyed the post......stay tuned for the third zucchini recipe coming up in the next couple of days!
