- 3 c
- grated zucchini, peeled and seeded if needed ( i leave some peeling on for color)
- 2 tsp
- kosher salt
- 1 1/2 c
- all purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp
- baking powder
- 3 large
- 1/2 c
- vegetable oil
- 1 tsp
- high quality lemon pepper
- 2 tsp
- chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dry
- 1 c
- finely chopped onion
- 2 c
- grated sharp cheddar cheese
1Preheat oven 350 degrees. Mist the inside of a 7x11 glass baking dish with cooking spray.
2Stir together the zucchini and salt in a colander and let drain 15 minutes. Press out the liquid; let drain another 15 minutes. Pick up small handfuls of zucchini and squeeze out as much liquid as possible; transfer to a small bowl.
3Whisk together flour and baking powder in a large bowl.
4In a small bowl, whisk the eggs until blended, then whisk in the oil, lemon pepper and thyme. Pour egg mixture into flour mixture and mix well.
5Use a rubber spatula to fold in the zucchini, onion and cheese. The batter will be very stiff. Scrape it into the prepared baking dish and press evenly into the corners.
6Bake until the top is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
Let cool at least 5 minutes before serving.
7I have reheated the leftovers the next day and it was just as good maybe even better!
