Savory Zucchini Garlic Onion Dill Bread

Family Favorites


A deliciously moist, buttery garlic bread with shredded cheddar, garlic, dill and onion. Although you can make this in a standard loaf pan, I think that it's much nicer baked in mini loaf pans. Sliced and placed in a pretty bread basket served with your main course, served with your favorite cream cheese spread as an appetizer, or served warm with a nice marinara sauce, your family will love it.

I purchased a package of 5 aluminum mini loaf pans for around $1.29 and they baked up perfectly.

A wonderful gift that your friends and neighbors will love.

How to Make Savory Zucchini Garlic Onion Dill Bread


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or butter 3 mini loaf pans (3 1/2 x 6) or 1 standard loaf pan.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl and whisk. (Can sift if you would prefer.) Using a large spoon to this bowl, add zucchini, cheese, onion and dill, coating completely.
  3. Add wet ingredients (eggs, milk w/vinegar, and melted butter).
  4. Stir until just blended. Place equally in to prepared pans.
  5. Bake 3 mini loaves for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with 1/2 of butter garlic powder mixture. Return to oven approximately 5 more minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost clean and they are golden brown. When done, brush with remaining butter mixture.
  6. (For a standard size loaf, bake approximately 45 minutes, brush with butter and return for an additional 5 minutes.) I have never used a large pan myself, so watch closely.
