zucchini tuesday

"What do you mean your putting potatoes into a bread and butter putting?" Mr R asked me the other night. Have you ever had one of those days when you look in the fridge and cupboards and all there are a few bits and pieces of vege, bread, a scrap of cheese? Why not make a savoury bread and butter pudding? I would love to say that I got to use zucchini I grew but I had pulled a few babies the night before to pop on top of my pizza. Thankfully there were a few zuch's in the fridge to create my masterpiece.

So for this dish you can really use anything you like to it just like a quiche. Here is what I used:

Slice up a half baguette into slices.
Dice a couple of potatoes, season and fry. Do the same with a couple of zucchini.
Slice up a scrap of haloumi cheese into slices.
Drain red pepper strips.
Assemble the slices and squeeze the other ingredient in between.

Then if you are really lucky you will have a helper such as I did. V mixed up 5-6 eggs with grated parmesan with a bit of paprika and seasoning. Pour over the bready mix

I topped it off with spring onion and popped it into the oven until golden brown.

It looked a great deal better when cooked but the photo was rubbish.

I feel a bit bad that I didn't get around to posting about the lovely zucchini in that last couple of weeks.  I just didn't quite get around to posting for one reason or another.  But I did capture a couple of photos of zucchini used in other dishes during the last couple of weeks. Here is a zucchini that was tiny before my relatives went away for Christmas. On return she found this baby and stuffed it with spinach and feta, then roasted it. Yum

Under the cheese and tomato is my yellow zucchini and it's flower
Tonight I made a black bean and roasted zucchini enchiladas which you can find the recipe by clicking on the link.

Finally to show you how much love I have for the humble zucchini here is a photo of the 'Gold dust' growing in my patch

  1. I'm so impressed with all your zucchini recipes. i made fritters this week which quite frankly pales in comparison with your savoury bread and butter pudding.

    1. Love a good fritter. Got a good one using potato, mint and zucchini yum will have to pull it out. The pudding was really good, I have a feeling the idea came from one which used chorizo and mushroom??

  2. This is truly inspirational. You get the zucchini medal this week for such a wonderful effort at glut reduction, congratulations! And such innovation. I am really liking the Bread and Butter Pudding and that lovely picture of the yellow zucchini (especially its enormous flower)!

  3. Great love medals. I have actually just been out to the patch and the zucchini are starting to go mental so looks like I am about to have a huge glut
