  • 1 1/4 cups shredded zucchini or a heaping cup full
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 TBS baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper or more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • A few dashes of red pepper optional
  • 1/4 cup butter cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese can use a cheddar blend, Parmesan, Mozzarella or a combination of cheeses
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions
  • Optional: Garlic Butter topping garlic paste or powder mixed with 3 TBS melted butter


  • Shred your zucchini using a cheese grater or box grater. Leave the skin on. (wash zucchini first).
  • Place shredded zucchini in a colander set over a few paper towels, season it with salt and allow it to sit and drain a bit (15 minutes). Press down on the zucchini with clean paper towels, helping to both squeeze-out liquid and blot liquid. You want to get as much liquid out as you can.
  • The more liquid you get out, the lighter your biscuits will be.
  • While zucchini sits, in a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder,
  • Cut in your butter cubes with a pastry cutter or your fingers, you just want butter worked in a bit to the dry ingredients and crumbly.
  • Whisk your egg into your milk and add in along with cheese, scallions and zucchini.
  • Mix just until incorporated.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to scoop and form the dough. Spacing it 2 inches apart. If you don't have an ice cream scoop, measure out 1/4 cup portions of the dough.
  • Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 20 minutes or until cooked through and the tops just begin to turn golden (if you want them browner just leave them in a little longer).
  • If you want to bush the tops with a little garlic butter, combine 3 TBS melted butter with either 1 TBS garlic paste or 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder. With 3-5 minutes to go on baking, quickly pull biscuits out and liberally brush the tops. Place back in the oven to finish baking.
  • Serve warm & enjoy!
