Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella

Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella
 Well, well, well.
The zucchini growing in my garden have 
finally made an appearance at the dinner table.
Welcome, welcome!
We love zucchini around here and I find myself putting it in all kinds of things throughout the summer and into the fall.
I wanted to make this fabulous Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella 
very first because…
it is our 
very favorite.
I goes wonderfully with….
Beach Street Chicken
or as an appetizer, or snack, 
or just about anytime your little heart desires. 
We LOVE it.
Really love it.
 Hope you all do as well! 
Here’s to zucchini a plenty throughout the summer!

Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella
Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!
2 medium sized (or about 5 small) zucchini
Johnny’s Garlic Spread Seasoning
2 C shredded mozzarella cheese
1. Slice your zucchini up into 1/2 inch rings.
2. Lay them out flat on a large cookie sheet. Sprinkle with Johnny’s Garlic Seasoning and a bit of salt.
3. Bake in the oven at 350 for about 10-15 minutes or until crisp tender.
4. Take the hot pan out of the oven and sprinkle the zucchini with cheese. Turn the oven to broil, throw that cookie sheet back into the oven and let the cheese get all bubbly and a bit browned. This should only take about 3-5 minutes. Be careful here. Broiling things in the oven can get out of control in a fast hurry. Keep a close eye on these beauties or they will be charred black. And, this might surprise you, but most folks don’t enjoy food that has been charred black. If your family does…by all means, charr the heck out of them.
“hoop, there it is…..”
“What you talkin’ bout, Mama?” said NateTheGreat.
“You puttin’ a lot a CHEESE on that green stuff?”
“Eat your cheese, Nate or I wiww kiww you dead 
with my lightsabow!” bellowed AaronFearlessDefenderOfMother….

Oh, summertime. We are loving it!

    We love Johnny's Garlic Seasoning!
    I use it a lot…in fact I order a 6 count pack through Amazon! LOL
    It makes outstanding garlic butter which I keep in the fridge and add to so many things…soups, gravy's, potatoes, eggs, etc.

    So, Walmart doesn't carry Johnny's Garlic (only the season salt) and I am too lazy to go anywhere else this week. Please tell me, dear Jamie, what all is in Johnny's so I can make these before I am able to locate the real stuff? These look amazing!!

    Jamie N,
    I buy my Johnny's Garlic Seasoning at Costco. But if I didn't have any on hand I would use Italian Seasoning, or garlic salt. Good luck! Hope they turn out well!
