Zucchini Pie

I love this recipe. It is easy and so, so flavorful. It is good for a brunch or if you cut it into small enough pieces, it would work as an appetizer. It is great for vegetarians and just if you are looking for something lighter to eat. This recipe comes from Amy over at Dinners for a year and beyond, her food is incredible looking and tastes just as good. If you use store bought pie crust, which I did, this can be ready in about 45 minutes. It comes together very quickly.

Zucchini Pie

1 pie crust, unbaked
Dijon mustard
1/4 cup butter
4 cups slice zucchini
1 cup diced onion
1/2 cup fresh parsley, choppes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp oregano, dried
1/4 tsp garlic salt
2 cups shredded mozzarella, or a combo of sharp cheddar and mozzarella works great
2 extra large eggs, beaten


Preheat oven to 375.

Line a pie plate with the pie crust.
I lined nothing, this is a thawed out frozen pie crust. Brush the crust with Dijon mustard.

Melt butter in large saute pan and add Zucchini and onion.

Saute for about 8 minutes. Add parsley,salt,pepper,oregano, and garlic salt. Toss to coat.

Cool slightly and then add cheese and eggs and mix. Pour into pie crust.

Bale 25-30 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.

This is super yummy and the mustard gives it such a nice tang. It will make everyone wonder what is in there.

So, please give this a try and you won't be disappointed. It is so delicious and so perfect for many occasions.

Come on, it is waiting for you !!!!


  1. Shit woman that looks sooooo good, I am drooling!

  2. This would be great for a nice brunch or a ladies' luncheon. Thanks for this post. I'm keeping this in the back of my mind!

  3. This looks like it would be great year round. By the way, I plan on making your roast recipe later this week.

  4. What a delicious way to eat zucchini! Love it with all that mozzarella!

  5. I have the orange cookie dough in my fridge as it was very moist and I need to firm it up before I bake them. I am meeting up with more bloggers tomorrow for lunch and want to bring little cookie bags for each of the ladies. I will post the results on my blog next week. Now I like the idea of the mustard in this recipe for added flavor. I am always looking for new quiche type recipes to bake ahead for company brunch. Thanks for shaing.

  6. Yum - it looks really delicious. Perfect for a brunch.

  7. Oh yum! I can see why you love this one. Looks wonderful!

  8. YUM! I bet this is good!! It looks wonderful!

  9. Great recipe Denise, I know I am going to give this a try. I have 2 frozen pie crusts in the freezer that I need to use soon and this would be perfect....

  10. Sometimes, all you really want is a good, cheesy quiche. Now that is what you've got me craving. Delicious!

  11. Love this recipe, it is one of my favorites, crowd pleaser, and can be atkins/south beach friendly when omitting the crust. It tastes delicious!

  12. Hey Denise! I sent you a couple of emails, just making sure that you recieved them. :)

  13. You just reminded me that I have zucchini in my veggie drawer that needs to be eaten!

    This does look delicious. I like the way you spread the Dijon on the crust first.

  14. I like any kind of pie and pie for dinner is even better. I love the top, it looks perfect!

  15. I love stuff like this, but I am surrounded by peasants who are suspect of anything new... It looks just wonderful, dear!
