Zucchini Quiche Cornbread

in All Posts

My fun friend weekend continues.  I don’t want Lauren to ever go back to Singapore!  She can move into my guest room…


Actually, I think she has plans to sneak Henry in her carry-on suitcase and take him home with her.  Hah.  He’ll fit, right?

We went out to dinner last night and came home to watch a movie… but we all started to fall asleep within thirty minutes.  Hugo was so painfully slow.  I’d say that we’re going to finish it today, but I think going for a long walk and sitting by the pool sounds much, much more appealing.


Henry and I were the first ones up, so we got started on breakfast.  We made quiche cornbread – there’s a layer of cornbread on the bottom and veggies and eggs on top.



Zucchini Quiche Cornbread


Ingredients (for 4 servings):

  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 yellow squash
  • 1 and 1/4 cup dry cornbread mix, which should then be prepared according to package directions (i.e. with all the egg, water, milk, oil, etc.)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Thinly slice zucchini and squash.  Place in hot wok with a little oil and brown.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the cornbread mix according to package directions. 
  • Pour cornbread into a greased cast iron dish and bake for 10 minutes at 425.
  • Remove cornbread from oven and place browned zucchini and squash on top.
  • Combine eggs, milk, and salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Beat thoroughly.
  • Pour egg mix on top of zucchini and squash and cornbread.
  • Put back in the oven and bake for 20 minutes at 425. 
  • Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing into quarters.
  • Enjoy!


The original quiche cornbread has broccoli and cheese – it’s tasty, too!  But I really liked the zucch and squash combo in this version. 


Happy Sunday!

    That looks like such a yummy and simple breakfast! Will have to bookmark this recipe! Enjoy your friend time. My best friend lived in Southeast Asia for a while so I understand how valuable it is!

    Ha! I couldn’t get through that movie either. That recipe looks delicious!

    So glad you’re enjoying your time with Lauren 🙂 Btw, I felt the same way about the movie…fell asleep too 😛

    I remember watching Hugo on an airplane and I couldn’t follow it AT ALL. It just wasn’t holding my attention and I gave up on it pretty quickly.

    Henry is the cutest! Looks like he’s turning out to be a redhead!

  • Jen August 19, 2012, 2:45 pm

    Henry is so cute and expressive! Haha I love his face in the picture on the right. Enjoy your time with your friend!

  • Alex @ Brain, Body, Because August 19, 2012, 3:34 pm

    Really? I thought Hugo was adorable!

  • Kelly August 19, 2012, 3:42 pm

    Awesome!! Lauren looks so familiar to me. I can’t figure out why (though I’m sure I’ve seen her on here before). Did she go to Pitt too? (I’m a 2003 Pitt grad).

    • Caitlin August 19, 2012, 4:23 pm

      Yes graduated in 2006!

  • Cara @ I Don't Believe in Diets August 19, 2012, 4:10 pm

    the meal sounds like one of the best inventions ever.

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats August 19, 2012, 4:26 pm

    That looks soooo good! I love cornbread, I’m going to have to try it!

  • Amy Q August 19, 2012, 7:29 pm

    Henry’s faces are hilarious– like he’s actually concerned about being thrown into a suitcase in the first one…..and the zucchini/cornbread sounds genius.

  • Amy Q August 19, 2012, 7:30 pm

    PS Hugo is a wonderful book- brilliant! But his latest- “Wonderstuck”– is brilliant x1000! Do not miss! (an easy read for a sleepy new mom as well.) But BEAUTIFUL.

    YAY for veggies in the a.m.!!

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More August 20, 2012, 12:26 am

    Henry is SUCH a cute and I love his bright blue eyes! So precious! 🙂

  • Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy August 20, 2012, 6:30 am

    Yum – that looks delicious!

  • Corrie Anne August 20, 2012, 9:39 am

    Pinned that recipe right away!! Looks awesome!!!

  • Ashley O. @ The Vegetable Life August 20, 2012, 10:24 am

    Wow this looks ridiculously delicious! I have never thought on making a quiche/frittatta on top of cornbread, that is a genius idea!!!!!

  • Clare August 20, 2012, 12:35 pm

    Oh my word, that is one CUTE baby. I think you’re going to have a little redhead 🙂

  • Brigid August 20, 2012, 1:29 pm

    Aww, Henry’s smile!

    I brought something similar for lunch today. It’s called Tuscan Zucchini Pie (from the World Vegetarian cookbook), except I used pattypan instead. It’s crustless, but otherwise it’s really similar. I’m counting the minutes until the lunch hour so I can try it.

  • Ellen @ Wannabe Health Nut August 20, 2012, 2:00 pm

    Yum! Looks easy to make, too. Always a bonus. 🙂
