Pinterest Fail?

So, I tried to make this. If you don’t want to click on that, I’ll explain. It’s a recipe for cheesy zucchini breadsticks. Looks amazing and easy. Here’s the original recipe.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups shredded zucchini (about 3 medium)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella (or any) cheese
  • Italian seasoning

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Sprinkle the shredded zucchini with salt to release some of its moisture. Let sit 10-15 minutes, then squeeze zucchini in a clean cheese towel to release most or all of the liquid.
  3. Mix zucchini, eggs and flour in a medium bowl. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the zucchini mixture into a large thin rectangle.
  4. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the edges are nicely brown. Make sure it’s nice and golden on the sides and top so the crust isn’t mushy.
  5. Reduce the oven to 350 degrees F, sprinkle the crust with cheese and Italian seasoning, and continue baking until the cheese is just melted.
  6. Let cool a few minutes, then cut into sticks. Serve with marinara or ranch or garlic butter or any sauce.

So, I shredded a bunch of zucchini. I also had some yellow squash, thanks to a friend of mine. So, I put shredded that and put that in there, too. I did put some grated garlic in the mix, too. Other than that, I followed the recipe. It looked just like the picture! I pulled it out of the oven but it was stuck the foil. Now, I always use foil because easy clean up, right? Also, I oiled the shit out of that foil. But still it stuck to the foil. So, now what? Throw it out? Hell no. That’s not my way. So, instead, I made a zucchini / squash bake. It was not bad. It definitely tasted like garlic bread with cheese. I still have some of the shredded zucchini and squash left, I may try to make some little pancake patties with it. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
