Meat Zucchini Casserole

Meat Zucchini Casserole

Another recipe with zucchinis, accessible to anyone, delicious, fast and healthy. It's a filling dish but, at the same time, not too heavy thanks to the zucchini (which is not fried in advance). You can make this recipe using minced chicken, turkey, pork, beef or your favorite mix.

The method is very easy and fast. You don't have to prepare the zucchinis in advance. They will release a little juice but that's not bad, it will only make the casserole more tender. Another big plus is the fact that it doesn't contain flour of any kind, only eggs, sour cream and a little cheese on top for the crust (which you can skip without worries), so it's dieteic. I cook it with great confidence for the low-carb diet. It's also good for those who have problems with fried food.

It can be garnished with large slices of tomatoes on top. I had an impressive cherry tomato harvest in the garden which I now use for all kinds of dishes, frozen (frozen tomatoes by the method here) or fresh.

Mine was big, oval and made from glass. It also looks nice when you serve it straight from the glass dish.
