Zucchini Pepperjack Casserole

Since my zucchini is producing so well and fast, I'm on the lookout for new ways to fix it! This is a recipe my Mom had which I adjusted to make it low-carb. I haven't run it through any software for carb counts so if any kind soul wishes to do so and post it I'd be forever grateful!

Zucchini Pepperjack Casserole

1 pound zucchini, cubed in 1/4" pieces
2 strips cooked bacon, cut into small pieces
8 oz. grated pepperjack
2 green onions, sliced, white & green
1 small can (3 or 4 oz.) diced mild chiles (Ortega)
1 tsp. crushed dried oregano
2 tablespoons Carbquik
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. ground ancho or other mild chile pepper

Toss all these ingredients together in an 8" round casserole.

Mix together:

1/4 cup half & half
2 eggs
1/8 tsp. Tabasco

Pour over ingredients in casserole, stir well, then sprinkle top evenly with the following, mixed together:

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup crushed pork rinds (or almond meal)
2 tablespoons melted butter

Bake at 350* about 45 minutes or til just browning and bubbling around the edges. Let cool slightly before serving.

Makes 6 hearty servings or up to 10 side servings

Additional notes - I made this today with my own tweaks which are included in the above recipe already. Next time I might bake it in a 7 x 11 casserole and let cool a bit longer then cut into squares. Probably need to double the topping in that case!

That sounds delish Char. Our zucchinis have slowed down temporarily but when I have some more this is going on the list! Thanks for sharing.

Sounds yummy. Unfortunately our garden isn't producing much now--over 100 degrees in the shade and no rain in over a month has about burned everything up even with me watering manually. This summer has been brutal. I'm copying the recipe to my collection for future reference though. Thanks.

Hi Charski,
I wanted to let you know I made your Zucchini casserole but I used the yellow squash instead, since that's what I had.
It was delish! My DH loved it too! Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe.

Glad you liked it, Diana! I wish my crooknecks were as prolific as my zucchini - I really prefer them - but this dish is pretty versatile. I'll have to try it with the yellows if I ever get enough at once!

I made this today and it was absolutely delicious! I made mine spicier with more chili powder, used italian seasonings, and extra tobasco. I used all almond meal no Carbquick or pork rinds. I think it needs some fresh ground black pepper also. The kids really liked this.

Char thanks a lot

I have grown the yellow squash that looks like zukes but are yellow.

This is what I make my cheddar squash soup recipe with.

I am going to use it with your recipe. It should be very pretty and
delish.

Wow, I finally made this zucchini pepperjack casserole. It is a keeper. Hubby loved it too, said just the right amount of spices. Really good heated up the next day too. I was too lazy to cube the zuc so I did half moons thinly sliced. I might try cubing it next time just to see the difference.

Thanks Charski for the great recipe!

My, that DOES sound good. I don't think I've ever used green chiles with zucchini and I bet they would be very tasty together! Wonder if ˝ can drained, stewed tomatoes would be any good in this, or if it would just serve to make it get "soupy"?

Char I had some leftover chicken breast and diced it up and added it. I didn't have any pepperjack or chiles so I used mozzarella along with a fresh jalapeno and a can of rotel.

It looks so good! We're having it for supper.

I was searching zucchini recipes on here and turned up this one - which *I* posted originally - and had completely forgotten about it!

Gonna make this soon. DH has made me promise to make zucchini bread too. Shouldn't be a problem, we're getting some decent production at the moment!

Bumping up for anybody who hasn't tried it because it's really good and a great way to do something different with all those zucchini once the neighbors start avoiding you because you keep trying to gift them with your abundance!

Funny regarding the neighborly avoidance

Widget's Zuke bread is like spice cake and your dish really sounds good.
We are getting nice zuke's and just enough to play with.

Barbo! How are you, girlfriend?

I just put The Chicken Lady's carrot cake into the oven, but used finely diced zucchini instead. Man the kitchen smells SO GOOD right now. Next up is this casserole!

Thanks for asking Char

I need a serious spinal surgery but my overall health is preventing me
from having it. Too many risks. At 82 what can I expect eh?

I'm getting around with a walker and Dh takes me here and there,
although I don't stay out long as it tires me too much and painful too.

Trying to keep as good an attitude as I can. Still come here daily and search
around to see if you all are keeping on your toes as the best online low
carb cooks in the universe you are!

My yellow squash were duds but the zukes are ok, and I have a 10 foot
tomato tree and about 9 feet around. All from one 4" "Champion" tomato
start. I cannot hardly believe my eyes. It's way above our fence line.
Boysenberries crop very small this year. Saved them all for freezer to make
boysenberry cobbler for my daughter Chris' 66th birthday celebration.
Yes once a year we do a from scratch all naughty cobbler.
We got 2 peaches this year. What a crying shame. There was no cold
winter this year and that's what this Alberta peach tree needs.

Just put up some tomato pints and made a huge batch of green chili
verde from our tomatillos. Shared with neighbors. Jay has been catching
a lot of fish this season and sharing it. I put up tuna and yellowtail in
pints. I only do 4 at a time under pressure. Otherwise it's way to much
work for this old lady!

Want to share with gadget girls that I bought a new pressure cooker.
It's the One Pot and I dearly love it.

Have a wonderful summer all you Low Carb Friends.

Barbo - nice to hear from you but sorry about your health problems. I would agree with foregoing surgery when the risks outweigh the benefits. These are supposed to be the golden years but it seems in the golden years everything goes to he-l!; Sounds like you're keeping busy and everything sounds so good.

Barbo - I'm feeling for ya, Honey, and sending out good vibes that you'll be feeling better - such a tribute that you continue to do what you love in the kitchen and garden! What kind of pressure cooker did you get? I love mine - and my pressure canner too!
