This Zucchini, Green Onion Cheesy Quick Bread couldn’t be any easier! I skipped a step by using Bisquick, (or your favorite baking mix) instead of mixing all the dry ingredients together.
If you are a follower of this little blog of mine, you know that I am crazy about quick breads. You can incorporate just about any fresh or frozen ingredient that you are trying to get rid of. If you have a bundle of parsley or thyme or rosemary in your refrigerator that you have to use up quickly, tthrow it in a savory quick bread and serve it a side with just about any meal.
When using frozen ingredients, make sure you thaw them completely and drain the excess very well or your bread will fall. In the case of the zucchini, I grate them when fresh in the summer and place in food storage bags. If you use this method, you really should wring the excess water out by squeezing in you hands because they store large amounts of water that will ruin your bread.
You know how you come up with a craving that you just can’t shake? I had been craving a grilled ham and cheese lately, but wanted it on a different bread to add some interest. A different texture, mostly.
I used this same recipe in my Cheesy Herbed Muffins, many moons ago. It literally comes together in minutes! It is super moist, yet still fluffy and airy. You can actually see all of the air holes in the photograph.
Zucchini, Green Onion Cheesy Quick Bread Ham and Cheese Grilled Cheese
You must let the bread cool completely before making the grilled cheese. I made the grilled cheese for lunch the next day. Store the bread in a paper bag overnight so that it doesn’t get soggy.
The grilled cheese is equally easy. Just butter one side of the bread and add waterever meat and cheese you would like. I also added roasted peppers to these ones which added a great flavor. Also, then you can tell yourself you are eating something healthy (It makes up for the cheese and the ham. Not sure how that math works, but it works for me!) 🙂
Enjoy! And have fun cooking!! 🙂
