Zucchini Crust Grilled Cheese
Write a review
  1. Makes 2 grilled cheese sandwiches
  2. Zucchini crust “bread” slices
  3. 4 cups shredded zucchini
  4. 1 egg
  5. ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  6. 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  7. 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  8. ½ teaspoon salt
  9. Pinch of ground black pepper
  10. Grilled cheese
  11. 1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
  12. ⅓ cup / 3 oz / 85 gr sharp cheddar cheese, grated/shredded, at room temperature
  1. Zucchini crust “bread” slices
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F (220°C) and place a rack in the middle.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and liberally grease it (alternatively use a silicone baking mat). Set aside.
  4. Place shredded zucchini in a microwave-safe dish and microwave on high for 6 minutes. Transfer to a dishcloth (or tea towel) and twist it to squeeze as much moisture as you can. This is very important. The zucchini need to be dry, otherwise you’ll end up with mushy dough, impossible to use as slices of bread.
  5. In a bowl mix zucchini, egg, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, oregano, salt, and pepper.
  6. Spread zucchini mixture onto the lined baking sheet and shape into 4 squares.
  7. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes until lightly golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool 10 minutes before peeling them off the parchment paper (be careful not to break them!)
  9. Assemble grilled cheese
  10. Heat a pan over medium heat.
  11. Butter one side of each slice of zucchini crust bread (preferably the top part).
  12. Place one slice of bread in the pan, buttered side down, sprinkle with the cheese and top with the remaining slice of zucchini crust bread, buttered side up.
  13. Turn the heat down a notch and cook until golden brown, about 2 to 4 minutes.
  14. Gently flip and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 2 to 4 minutes.
