If you live near a farmer’s market, you’ll probably agree how great it is to be able to buy fresh produce, much of it organic, to use in summer recipes. Zucchini is a veggie I use a lot, and here’s a really good Savory Zucchini Pie that I found in a cookbook called Farm Fresh Southern Cooking: Straight from the Garden to Your Dinner Table. Author Tammy Algood, food personality and columnist, put together a great collection of recipes you can make with ingredients fresh from the farmers’ market, local produce stands, or your own garden.
I was really happy with how this Savory Zucchini Pie turned out! It’s an easy recipe that’s perfect for breakfast or brunch, and I always seem to have lots of zucchini around during farmers’ market season. This pie also has onions, cheddar cheese, and herbs to give it a great flavor. It’s made with baking mix, too, and I used a whole grain mix by Hodgson Mill® called Insta-Bake Whole Wheat Variety Baking Mix with Buttermilk. I really like the mix and the fact that it’s made with whole wheat.
Keep this recipe in mind when you have some zucchini on hand!
Savory Zucchini Pie
SAVORY ZUCCHINI PIE from Farm Fresh Southern Cooking
Makes 8 servings
- 2 cups shredded zucchini (you don’t need to peel the zucchini before shredding)
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 white onion, peeled and chopped
- 3/4 cup all-purpose baking mix (I used Hodgson Mill® Insta-Bake)
- 3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil (I used non-GMO canola oil)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon dried sage
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the zucchini, eggs, onions, baking mix, cheese, oil, salt, pepper, sage, and paprika. Blend well. Transfer to the prepared pie plate.
Bake 45 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack before slicing and serving.

I love to buy fresh produce from the farmers’ market…especially tomatoes! What kinds of local produce do you like to buy?
