Save Recipe

This recipe combines two of my very favorite things: zucchini and quick bread! Every summer I faithfully plant my zucchini plants and not-so-patiently wait for the harvest. When the zucchini starts rolling in this cheesy zucchini bread is the first recipe I make!

Why I love this recipe

While many zucchini breads are sweet, this is a savory bread packed with flavor. It is perfect on its own for breakfast or a snack, or served as a side with stovetop chili or ground beef vegetable soup.

This is a no-fail, easy bread and its ready to eat in just over an hour.
