Zuchini Sausuage Casserole

Here is a great way to use up your garden zucchini that has been multiplying.  It’s great for a side dish and doesn’t take too many ingredients. You can even eat it as a main dish.  It is delicious and whips up very quickly.

I’ve tried shredding the Zucchini for the Zucchini Sausage Bake but it is NOT as good….chunks are much better.

Zucchini Sausage Bake


  • 4 medium zucchinis, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup buttermilk baking mix (like Bisquick)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 -3/4 cup grated cheese (jack,  mozzarella or cheddar-save for top)
  • 3/4 cup browned sausage diced up (I like the Jimmy Dean chub)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
      • 4 eggs, beaten

  • 1/4 cup of milk  
  • Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes depending on your oven

Jimmy Dean Sausage Chub looks like this.
I think I used a sweet Vidalia onion for Zuchini Sausage Casserole, and it turned out great! I have also added red peppers before and they are great too. 

Spray a 9 x 9 pan with Cooking Spray. Layer the zucchini sliced and quartered in the pan. (remove seeds if you are using a giant zucchini). Then mix the other ingredients and pour over the top. Save cheese and top last of all. Bake at 350 for about 30 to 40 minutes until it looks golden on top and the inside middle is fully cooked. 


Here’s the Zucchini Sausage Bake…it’s delicious with or without the sausage…

It’s a great thing to do with all those gazillions of zuchinis that are growing out your ears from the garden. 

My Black Berries from my garden along with some cherries are a great summer side dish. I love those summer fruits, don’t you? Yum. 
BBQ Chicken hot off the grill! Thanks uncle Rob! Isn‘t he the best BBQ King ever?
Sometimes I have added some red pepper or mushrooms if I have some leftover and it just adds to the flavor. Try to cook it in one of those stone brownie pans that come in the 9 x 9 size. Occasionally the middle takes longer to bake and you don’t want it to be mushy in the middle.
Chocolate cake (check it out) for dessert!  I know, I went overboard. No wonder I’m a chub. But oh Heavenly Yum!  This dinner was so delish for a foodie. Are you a foodie too? 

Zuchini Casserole

Do you sometimes wonder what in the heck to do with all of those zuchinis and tomatoes erupting in your garden? I have a fabulous and easy casserole recipe that my family loves to chow down.

My zuchini plants are doing well….Zuchini Casserole is a great recipe to use!

Yellow squash is almost ready to pick…Yummy in my zuchini casserole.

The ingredients are really simple;
2 tomatoes
2 small zuchini (or yellow squash or a mix)
1/2 a large red onion sliced in medium thin rings
4-6 strips of bacon
1/2 Cup (or more)grated cheddar cheese

Spray a glass casserole dish with Pam. I use the smaller 9 x 9 or a round glass. But you could double the recipe and use a 9 x 13.
Layer sliced onion cut into rings, then the slices of zuchini and/or squash, then bacon, tomatoes. Then season the top with salt, pepper and a little lemon pepper. Then add grated cheese over the top.

I used zuchini and yellow squash in this Zuchini Casserole…The bacon and cheese make this meal!  

Bake covered with foil for about 45 minutes at 350 or until the squash is tender and the bacon is done. You can pre-microwave the bacon for 1/2  minute if you like it crispier but I don’t. It is cheesy and bacony and an  oniony hot mess. I love it. It’s a great summer side dish to use up your garden loot. Everybody seems to love it.  😀

It’s a really yummy summer Zuchini Side Dish using zuchini and yellow squash!
