Cheesy Zucchini Casserole

Cheesy Zucchini Casserole - a simple and delicious side dish made with zucchini pieces, cheese, butter and crushed Chex! It's so good!

Happy Wednesday, folks! Kellyn here, with another tried and true recipe. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, can you believe it?? Did you know that over 700 million pounds of turkey is consumed on Thanksgiving day? That’s a lot of turkey!! Our meal assignments are usually made based on who is good at what. We have our usual favorites but occasionally someone will be brave enough to bring a new recipe. Today’s tried and true should be YOUR new recipe for Thanksgiving Day.

Zucchini is a standard in our household. Yes, its usually smothered in bread crumbs, deep fried, and then dipped in ranch, but I totally consider it a vegetable. 🙂 Todays zucchini casserole recipe is less greasy, but still great. I love the combination of the colby-jack cheese, eggs, and the rice chex. It’s a great side to make for a holiday or dinner gathering. Try it out and let us know what the family thinks!
