I tasted a small bite last night when I took it out of the oven. I like it with the multi-grain mix even better but I think I'd still want to do about half Bisquick and half of the mix. And the spice mix made it tastier than I remembered with just the oregano. Definitely something I would duplicate and it heats up nicely in the microwave.

Original Recipe from my mother-in-law:
4 c grated zucchini
1 1/2 c. grated sharp cheese
3 eggs beaten
1 t oregano
2 1/4 c. Bisquick
1/3 c. oil
1 onion diced

Mix all ingredients, put in 2 1/2 qt casserole. Bake 350 deg. F for 1 hour.

I had intended to make this recipe pretty close to the original but I had to improvise when I discovered I didn't have enough Bisquick for the recipe. I had about 1 c. of Heart Smart Bisquick so I decided to substitute some multi-grain pancake and waffle mix for the remaining 1 1/4 c. I noted that the biggest difference is that the pancake mix did not have oil included in it's ingredients. I did not think that would be too much of a problem because the zucchini brings moisture to the party (as Alton Brown would say) and I was using some oil in the recipe. If anything, cutting the oil makes it a bit healthier. Also, I decided to use Italian seasoning instead of oregano and while I did dice the one very small onion I had from my CSA, I added about 3/4 tsp of the Fox Point seasoning which also has salt and pepper (so I didn't add any separately).

Other notes: I used New York Sharp Cheddar cheese. I used a food processor to grate both the cheese and the zucchini. I grated the cheese first and then grated the zucchini. The end result is easier clean up for the food processor grating attachment and container.

This Pittsburgh Live has a recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Bread which a friend of mine has added to his regular repertoire of zucchini bread baking.

And the Post-Gazette had a recipe here for Pineapple Zucchini Bread that he's made as well.

I figure others would benefit as well.
