Usually, I prepare zucchini in the summer when I harvest them fresh from my garden. But this zucchini recipe is great any time of year.
Zucchini, Onion, and Mushroom Casserole
Every year we grow zucchini, but this year was a bumper crop. The photo below shows just a few of them; all told, we harvested over 30 zucchini. We couldn't eat them all, so I shared some of them with family members and neighbors.
I have several zucchini recipes I love, but this one is special because I made it up myself. I had a lot of ingredients I wanted to use up, so I just started putting things together and came up with a dish that my family (even my husband) enjoyed. In fact, we almost finished the whole pan in just one sitting!
It's an easy recipe to follow, and you can make adjustments or substitutions to suit your family's preferences (see below for ideas).

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray your 9 x 11" pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- With a wire whisk, combine the breadcrumbs and melted butter until creamy.
- In the pan, layer half of the zucchini, then half of the onions and mushrooms. Sprinkle a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then layer the other half of the zucchini, followed by the other half of the onions and mushrooms. Sprinkle some salt, pepper, and garlic powder on top.
- Spread the chicken soup mixture on top of the vegetables. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture on top of the soup mixture to cover the whole pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until the bread crumbs are golden brown and the zucchini is cooked (poke with a fork to check). Enjoy!
You can always make changes; not every family likes the same foods. Adjustments can be made as follows:
- Onions: I used red onions, but you can use whatever onions you have. The sweet onions would be great too.
- Mushrooms: If you don't like mushrooms, you can add whatever other vegetable you like.
- Soup: I had cream of chicken soup so that's what I used, but you could substitute cream of mushroom, another cream soup, or a cheese soup.
