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.

Step by step


First, wash and prepare the zucchinis.

I had a few older ones which I peeled and seeded (it's simple with a spoon). What's important is that at the end you have an approximate amount of 1kg.


Then cut into medium-sized cubes, about 1x1cm, and place in a large bowl.


Toss the diced peppers and finely chopped parsley over the zucchinis.


Dice the onion and fry in a little oil.


When browned, add the minced meat to the pan and mix well.


Continue to stir frequently until there is no more juice and the meat begins to brown.


Place it over the zucchinis, peppers and parsley in the large bowl.


Mix everything well, season with salt and pepper.


Now move the mixture to a deep oven pan.

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


Place slices of tomatoes or cherry tomatoes on top.


In a small bowl, mix eggs with sour cream, a pinch of salt and pepper.


Pour this mixture evenly over the vegetables and the meat in the pan. Shake the dish gently to spread it everywhere.


Now top with the grated cheese.


Cover the casserole dish with a lid or foil and place in the preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 1 hour.


After baking, leave to cool and the flavours to blend for about 30 minutes before serving.


And a section, very fresh, tender and delicious, you can serve it with salad or any garnish you like.
