  • 4 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp dried basil (optional, you can use oregano also)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp butter


  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F and line a flat sheet tray with greased parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Add the zucchini to a medium sized microwave safe bowl and then microwave for 6 minutes. Allow to cool completely and then place the cooked zucchini on a towel or piece of cheesecloth and squeeze out all the moisture- you should see almost a cup of water come out. Get the zucchini as dry as possible as this will help with the bread.
  3. In a new bowl, mix the dried zucchini, egg, mozzarella, parmesan, basil, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
  4. Scoop the batter onto the prepared sheet tray into 4 and shape the zucchini into squares the size of a piece of bread.
  5. Bake the zucchini bread slices in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. The tops should be golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes. Once cool, carefully remove from the sheet tray and move to a plate.
  6. Sprinkle two of the zucchini bread slices with the cheddar cheese and then top with the other slices of bread, making two sandwiches.
  7. Place the butter in a medium sauté pan and melt over medium heat. Place both sandwiches in the pan and sear on one side for 4 minutes, flip and cook for another 4 minutes.
  8. Serve while hot and melty!
