ISO tips/ideas for zucchini

I have some zucchinni left over from a vegetable meatloaf I make probably once every few weeks...it's the only thing I really use zucchinni for because i've never really cooked anything else with it....I was thinking I would just saute in a pan in butter or EVOO and sprinkle with s&p.....is there any other vegetable dish I can use this zucchini in??? thanks!

Shred it and make zucchini cakes like potato pancakes
slice it lengthwise and bread or batter for ffried zuke
grate it and use it in stuffed bell pepps mixed with bulgar wheat (and ground meat if you're not Vegetarian- implied by veggie meatloaf!)
Corn and zucchini fritters
veggie lasagne-sub-sliced-zucchini for noodles

If you have enough larger pieces left to cut into dill pickle spear shapes they are good grilled. Just drizzle olive oil on them, sprinkle with kosher salt, and grill.

There is also a mock crab cake too that people say is wonderful! I'm sure google will pull up more recipes for that than you need.

Add a bit of white wine to your pan when sauteeing.

I like to slice them in thick planks and then marinate in EVOO, oyster sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and sometimes some other things that I have lying around. Then grill them on a hot grill. My wife has been known to eat just that for dinner sometimes.

I have too many zucchini in the summer (imagine that.)
I grow too many on purpose because I LOVE grilled zukes!
Zuchinni cakes are good too.
I eat them grilled for lunch almost every day in summer. Olive oil, salt n pepper.
Wow I need to get those planted.......

Mmm, yes, I forgot about Zucchini Bread. A real Hunky favorite. My gramma always made us nice zucchini bread. It's hard to mess up because the zucchini makes it sooo moist. YUM! I'll take a nice warm slice with some coffee, please.

I just had fried zucchini the other day with paprika and marjoram in the batter. Put LOTS of spice in it or it will be too bland.
