Hey Randy...

Welcome to DC! I know what ya mean. One hill of zucchini can go wild sometimes. How about slice and fry. Think fried green tomaotes. Or slice long way, scoop out the center, fill with something and bake. Think stuffed crab.
Or brush with Evoo and grill. Lastly there are the neighbors. Make everybody happy in Montgomery and...

Enjoy!

Make a mixture out of crumbled, cooked Italian sausage, fontina cheese, or Monterey Jack, some Parmesan, some bread crumbs, chopped cooked mushrooms, garlic, and onions, even some cream cheese - stuff and bake.

Slice and sauté in white wine, s & p.

Slice long ways, marinate in some rosemary infused olive oil, s & p, and grill.

Slice in wedges (like a pickle) and marinate in olive oil, lime juice, garlic, ground cumin for the day and grill.

Make a zucchini soup or use it in a minestrone.

Slice in rounds, bread, and fry.

Make some zucchini pickles.

Randyhirst - welcome, but do make use of the search button on this site for "zucchini" &/or "squash" & you will come up with more topics & recipes than you have zucchini - lol!!!

Really. In fact, there was just a very recent thread here on the topic of what to do with summer squashes.

zuchini bread...like a spice cake with the veggie thru it..nice. Drop one off at every house on the block. Zuchini pickles.

seriously, the bread is nice...so is fried either in strips or rounds. You can bread them or not...simple egg dip is nice. Make zuchini strips and do pancakes like latkes. or mix with strips of potato ... again very good.

Stuff with anything...bigger ones par boil before stuffing and baking.

stuffing ideas: cornbread and sausage / bacon onion and bread crumb / chili and rice / meatball and pasta .

anyway it is a versatile veg. and a natch for ratatouille with onion tomato and eggplant.

Robo - you reminded me of the mock crabcakes made from shredded zucchini - I'm sure that recipe could be googled randyhirst.

Randy,
take 6-7 smal to med zukes, cut in sam size chunks and parboil, then drainwell,and chop up but not to fine heat a good sized skillet, dice up a good size onion, 3-4 cloves of garlic minced.4-5 tab. fresh chopped parsley, 2-3 Tab. fresh chopped marjoram,Put evoo to cover the bottom of you skillet, add your chopped veggies some salt and pepper and saute til you smell the onion, garlic and marjoram..Remove from heat,let cool slightly, then add 6-8 beaten eggs,1C. grated parmesan mix well and pour into a pam sprayed baking dish, the size depends on how thick you like your torta to be..We prefer it about 1/2 in, thick..Bake at 400 til set and top is golden..
Cut into small squares and serve hot, room temp or cold..To me I like it cool, it seems to have more flavor..You can also add any cooked leftover veggies to this, like fine chopped spinach, or asparagus, potato..artichoke heart.

Zuchinni pancakes are a favorite of mine as well. Shred the zukes, add minced garlic, finely chopped onions, beaten egg, herbs/spices, crumbs.

Zuchinni and tomato pie, zuchinni pizza or tart.

Zuchinni pasta

Zukes & walnuts - toast walnuts in skillet, let cool. Slice zukes in discs, season w nutmeg, s&P & saute in evoo and butter. Serve zukes w toasted walnuts.

Zuchinni fritatta.

Zuke fries - slice zukes lengthwise (like thin pickles), dip in beaten egg and parmesan/herb crumbs then bake or fry. Serve as a snack w Ranch dipping sauce or a side.

Zuchinni carpaccio - From memory - zukes are shredded, tossed w italian dressing, served on crusty bread w diced tomatoes, shredded mozzarella and almonds. (If you are interested, I will look for the exact recipes.)

Zuchinni dogs served on a hot dog bun - If you're interested, let me know.

Somewhere I saw a recipe for a zuke appy - zukes stuffed w creamed cheese and salami.

Chocolate zucchini bread.

Zuke lasagana with bechamel sauce. I would kick this one up w shredded carrots, and mushrooms.

Williams-Sonoma

Zuke stuffed shells w onions, salami & fontina:
