4 c Zucchini, diced into 1-inch pieces

1 c Mayonnaise

1 c Shredded Cheddar Cheese

2 Eggs, slightly beaten

1 teaspoon Pepper

3/41 teaspoon Garlic Powder

1/4 c Panko Breadcrumbs

1 tablespoon Butter, melted


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Make sure to grease a baking dish that can hold 1 1/2 quarts of food.

Fill a pot with water. Bring it to a boil. Add the zucchini. Let it cook for approximately 3 minutes. Once done drain the zucchini. Allow it to cool down.

In a bowl combine the parboiled zucchini with mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, beaten eggs, pepper and garlic powder. Mix everything together until blended.

Transfer the mixture into the greased baking dish making sure to spread it out evenly.

In another bowl mix together Panko breadcrumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle this breadcrumb mixture over the top of the casserole evenly.

Place the baking dish in the oven without covering it and bake for, around 35 minutes. Until you see that the zucchini is tender and the top has turned a golden brown color.

Allow some time for it to cool down before serving. Enjoy your Cheesy Zucchini Casserole!
