Zucchini Pie {Freezer friendly}

My two-year-old ate a slice of this pie all by herself. This mom was super excited she had made two and put one in the freezer:) It’s a great way to eat vegetables for breakfast. Feel free to shred fresh zucchini  and freeze for a future pie if you’ve got way too much and not enough pie ingredients or thaw your freshly frozen zucchini and use (click here for the tutorial).  Either way is winner in my recipe book because my toddlers and I love this pie for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

  1. I’ll make this next! Yesterday I made a summer squash frittata. It’s similar, but I don’t think it would freeze well with all those eggs. Do you freeze egg dishes?

    • Eggs dishes do freeze well if they are made with whole milk, half and half or heavy cream. Lower fat milk with more water content causes more condensation when thawing. You can pour it off though. I often freeze quiche, freezer brunch casserole and breakfast wraps made with scrambled eggs. Try it some time, it’s a time saver and a great way to use up lots of eggs.

      • Thanks! I don’t usually have whole milk on hand since my daughter turned 2. I’ll try to freeze some fritatta next time and see what happens.

        • Nailya, whole milk freezes better w/less water content as it thaws, but low-fat milk works too, you can pour off the extra condensation prior to reheat. It definitely works if you’re eating it straight up, fresh w/o freezing! Enjoy
