(Always read the recipe twice, assemble, and prepare your ingredients before you begin to cook)

4 eggs
1 cup Bisquick baking mix
½ cup vegetable or canola oil
1 small onion, diced
1/3 to 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 small pkg. mozzarella (diced)
3 small zucchini (peel and cut into small slices)

  • Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl
  • Place mixture in a very well-greased baking pan or dish
  • Bake at 375 degrees until brown on top and when inserting a fork into the middle, it comes out clean


  • Bisquick is a pre-mixed baking mix sold by General Mills under its Betty Crocker brand, consisting of flour, shortening, salt, and baking powder (a leavening agent).
  • Is zucchini and squash the same thing? They are the same thing.  Zucchini is the Italian word for the fruit which the French call a courgette.  In the US and Canada, most cucurbita pepo is referred to as “squash.” So all Zucchini are squash,  but not all squash are zucchinis (i.e., acorn, butternut, buttercup, spaghetti squash, etc.). Though squash originated in the Americas, the Zucchini was developed in Italy and was introduced back to the US by Italian immigrants so we use the term zucchini, though some will just refer to them as green summer squash to differentiate them from yellow summer squash which are about the same size and are often used interchangeably.
  • tsp. means a teaspoon and tbsp. means tablespoon – always use a measuring spoon not a piece of silverware
