I wish I could come up with a better name for this casserole as it deserves only the very best. And this is coming from a girl who is not really a fan of zucchini. How about "The End of Summer Casserole"?
Sometimes, I can be persuaded to eat the summer squash and not think about my tortuous childhood. I spent HOURS sitting at the table, after everyone else was finished, dishes were done and "Happy Days" was on the television before my dad would take pity on me and snatch the wretched veggie away from me.
Of course, my mom didn't know.
So why would I make anything that has zucchini in it? Or for that matter, grow it?
Because this is good.
Good enough to make me forget how much I dislike zucchini. (Besides, the zucchini plant is indestructible and makes me look like I know what I'm doing in the garden!)
1 lb. zucchini, unpeeled and chopped
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups sweet corn
