After a gourmet dinner of Giant Frozen Pizza on our first night in the new pad, I thought my lucky husband deserved something requiring a little more thought after a long day of more endless unpacking.
Wanting to use one of my pretty new casserole dishes, and considering that all we really have in the kitchen are ingredients to make a casserole (eggs…cheese…assorted vegetables…) I found this recipe for a Bisquick Zucchini Bake. Since I had to improvise with a few things, I renamed it to Newlywed Hungry Jack Zucchini Surprise. I think that sounds better anyway.
NEWLYWED HUNGRY JACK ZUCCHINI SURPRISE
2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup oil
1 cup Bisquick
1 onion (chopped)
8 oz cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano
Let the fun begin! The zucchini was supposed to be grated, but since we don’t have a grater, I just chopped it up really small.
Pop it in the oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes and enjoy the aroma wafting amidst the boxes, plastic, and bubble wrap. Excitedly pull it out as you jump for joy that you didn’t burn the place down and it looks pretty damn good.
