Tried 'N' True: It’s time to puff up your zucchini

It seems like everyone has more zucchini than they can use.

This year I told my husband, Gene, that I had put up enough zucchini from last year’s crop. But he planted a few anyway.

My good friend, Reta Bumpus, put this quick and easy recipe in our church cookbook. Horseradish just adds a little kick to it. If you don’t like horseradish, add a little less or just leave it out. Either way, it’s still good. Thanks Reta.

Puffed up Zucchini

4 cups zucchini, chopped

1 cup onion, chopped

1⁄4 cup water

2 tablespoons butter

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1⁄8 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon horseradish, grated

1 slightly beaten egg

1 cup cracker crumbs

3 tablespoons margarine

Combine zucchini, onion and water.

Cover and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.

Add 2 tablespoons margarine, salt, pepper, horseradish and egg to zucchini mixture.

Pour into a greased one-quart casserole dish.

Melt 3 tablespoons margarine and add cracker crumbs; sprinkle on top of casserole.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until bubbly.
