Cheezy Crunchy Zucchini Bake Recipe


There are times when making a quick meal is more important than preparing a nutritious homemade dish, and that’s the best time to use convenience products like canned soups, processed cheese, packaged croutons, etc. That’s exactly why they’re called “convenience” products, since they are very convenient for a cook in a hurry. Cheezy Crunchy Zucchini Bake can be put together in a matter of minutes – zucchini takes only a minute or two to slice, and a bit of onion takes only a minute or two to chop (many busy cooks chop several onions at once and keep them in the freezer for times like this). While chopping the two vegetables, the cheese and butter can be melting in the microwave. While the casserole is baking, the accompanying meat, chicken, or fish can be broiled, grilled, or baked and the starch (rice, noodles, potatoes) can be made. So this dish can be part of a 30-45 minute easy meal, which is quick enough for a weeknight.

Incidentally, if the garden is also overrun with yellow summer squash, it can be substituted for the zucchini in this dish; or use half yellow squash and half zucchini for a colorful and delicious change. Don’t be fooled by the ease of preparing Cheezy Crunchy Zucchini Bake, or the fact that it contains convenience products. It is one that has become a favorite with all of the official Hancock tasters, as well as others who have happened to eat dinner at the Hancock table.

8 Servings

2 pounds zucchini, sliced (for variety, use 1/2 yellow summer squash)
1/2 cup onions, finely chopped

1/2 pound pasteurized prepared cheese product, such as Velveeta
1/2 cup butter, divided
1 10 3/4 ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup

1 6 oz. package seasoned croutons, (about 3 cups)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Spread the zucchini slices over the bottom of a 9 x 13" shallow casserole dish; sprinkle with the onions.

  3. Place the cheese and 1/4 cup butter in a microwaveable container; microwave 2-3 minutes, stirring after every minute, until the cheese is melted.

  4. Stir in the soup and pour over the zucchini and onions.

  5. Scatter the croutons over the sauce mixture; pour the remaining 1/4 cup butter over the croutons.

  6. Bake 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.
