We are having a birthday celebration dinner for dad and I am going to help. We have a lot of zucchini in our garden, so I am going to make a zucchini casserole as the side dish. My niece, Haley is here to help.
2 pounds of zucchini
2 eggs, beaten
15 Ritz crackers
1 cup grated, sharp cheddar cheese
1 medium onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
large stock pot
rolling pin, knife, potato masher, spoon
Fill a large stock pot halfway with water.
Add 2 teaspoons of water, turn on to medium-high and bring water to a boil.
Wash the zucchini
Slice the zucchini
Place the zucchini in boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.
Crack 2 eggs in a small bowl and beat with a fork.
Chop the onion.
Place the crackers on the cutting board, cover with wax paper and crush with a rolling pin.
Drain the zucchini
Return the zucchini to the pot; add crackers, onion, egg and 1/2 cup of the cheese, mix
Place the zucchini mixture in a casserole dish and add the other 1/2 cup cheese on top.
Place in the oven and bake 20 minutes.
