Cheesy Zucchini Bake


  • 4 small zucchini (or 2 large), shredded
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 large red onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 8-10 green onions, sliced
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees, and grease a 9-by-9-inch square baking pan with oil or butter.
  2. Place shredded zucchini in a cheese cloth, sprinkling with salt as you go; set aside for about 30 minutes.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
  4. Add in the diced onion and sauté until tender.
  5. Add in the garlic, stir and cook until fragrant; remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Over a bowl or sink, squeeze the shredded zucchini to release all of the liquid.
  7. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten.
  8. Add in the zucchini, cooked onions and garlic, baking soda, Monterey Jack cheese and 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  9. Pour the zucchini mixture into the prepared baking pan and evenly sprinkle with remaining parmesan cheese.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven until the middle is set and the top is golden brown, about 45-55 minutes.

The inspiration for this recipe came from Baked by Melissa on TikTok. Her video can be found here.
