Mama’s Zucchini Quiche


Every holiday has that nostalgic dish your mom pulls out that becomes synonymous with that chag. It becomes a part of the woven thread of childhood memories, so reminiscent of your youth that one bite takes you back. My mother makes this every year, and it wouldn’t be Shavuos without it!


Prepare Mama’s Zucchini Quiche

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Bake pie crusts according to package directions. Let cool.
3. Melt butter in a skillet over low heat. Add shallot and sauté until transparent. Add zucchini, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Cook for another 10 minutes.
4. Beat eggs lightly in a medium bowl. Add milk and mix, for a total of one and a half cups combined.
5. Add zucchini and grated cheese to egg mixture and mix to combine. Divide between pre-baked pie shells. Scatter diced butter on top and sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes.
