This Cheezy Zucchini is easy to make and crazy tasty! If you don’t like zucchini, you just might change your mind now! Cheese makes everything better, right? I’m a believer.

For this concoction, slice the zucchini up into small discs and put them in a colander in the sink. Salt them, trying to spread the salt all over each piece (this does NOT have to be pe perfect! Just move them around in your fingers a bunch). Let them sit for about 15 mins so they can sweat out some water. Be sure to shake the colander a few times, and stir them up with your fingers as they sit to get as much water out as you can.

Sliced zucchini

Once you get some of the water out, just line them up in a roasting pan with each one leaning on the next, you should see about half or 1/4 of each, leaning on the next. Sprinkle some onion powder on them & some fresh cracked pepper. Next, cover it with shredded cheddar cheese and parmesan flakes.

Cheezy Zucchini before it is baked

Put that in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. They will get all melty but not brown. Finally, turn the broiler on for about 5 minutes until they are bubbly with a touch of brown!

I think you will love it! Maybe even your kids will too???
