This is a recipe I adapted from my Aunt... These yummy squares,can be eaten hot or at room temperature and they will be sure to have your home smelling divine as they bake...so yummy...I added mushrooms to mine and garlic...changed up the cheeses...she always used Swiss, which is wonderful as well...these are great to take to a Church potluck...everyone devours them in no time...could also make a sauce to serve...My aunt would always make a garlic sauce for hers...I like them as is, with a little sour cream.

Mushrooms are optional...my little addition.

Enjoy!

3/4 lb

1/2 tsp

1/8 - 1/4 tsp

1 c
milk
1 c

2
eggs, lightly beaten
2 c

couple Tbsp
grated parmesan cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degree F.

Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
2
In a large skillet, add olive oil. Over medium heat, once oil is hot, add your onion, garlic and zucchini. Cook this mixture just until the onion becomes translucent, garlic and zucchini become tender...about 5 minutes. Place this mixture into a large bowl.
3
In the same skillet, brown the sausage along with the mushrooms, salt and pepper. Cook until sausage is no longer pink. Drain and pour this mixture into the same bowl as the onion mixture.
4
Add all remaining ingredients, except for the Parmesan cheese. Mix all until well combined and pour into prepared baking dish.
5
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until pick comes out clean in the center of the bars.
6
Leave cool a few minutes, then cut into squares. As I said, these can be eaten warm or room temperature. With or without a sauce. I usually serve with sour cream.

Enjoy!
