Vegie Torte

Zucchini season is upon us, so I'll start posting some of my zucchini recipes. This one is a great dinner or brunch dish.

Vegie Torte

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pan-spray the bottom and sides of a 10 inch springform pan. Wrap the outside of the pan with aluminum foil to avoid leaking.

Sauté together
1/4 C olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 zucchini, sliced and halved
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 C steamed broccoli, cut small

Whip together in a really large bowl
6 large eggs
1/4 C half and half
3 T chopped fresh basil
Salt and pepper

3 C day old bread, in 1/2 inch cubes
1 8 oz package cream cheese, cubed
1 C shredded Swiss cheese
1 C shredded cheddar
(optional: 3 slices of bacon, crumbled)

Add the vegies. Pop everything into your pan and pack it in firmly. Bake for 1 hour (+/-). When it is puffed and firm to the touch, it is done.
