This was my mom's recipe. She is now passed but has given me the knowledge of cooking, baking, and preparing meals for large amounts of family. I was the only girl growing up with 5 brothers. My mother and I were always in the kitchen cooking for my dad and five brothers. I guess I was her sous chef. This recipe was always a hit at functions. I hope you enjoy!

When zucchini is plentiful, we're always looking for different ways to cook with it. These zucchini fingers are a great way to use them. This savory dish makes a moist bread with an almost egg quality. Garlic and onion add a lot of flavor. When cut into slices, they're easy to pick up and snack on during the day. If browned sausage or ground beef was added to these, they could be eaten as a meal. These are tasty!
