Baked Courgette Recipe

Every year I like finding new and yummy ways to use up the abundance of courgettes there always is.  I have made most cakes and soups you could think of, but for some reason I have never baked them (apart from a stuff marrow kind of thing).  But, this recipe is super easy and delicious so I am sharing it here.


  • 4 medium courgettes
  • 150-200g grated cheese (or your choice)
  • 1 handful basil, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. dried dill
  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. ground garlic
  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 180 °C or gas mark 4.

Heat 1/4 of the oil in a pan and slice courgette into disks or lengths and add to the pan when hot.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper and a little garlic and cook on both sides until soft.  Repeat for all the courgettes, adding more oil as needed and set aside.

Whisk the eggs and add the cheese (save a little bit for the top of your bake), dill and basil to the eggs and mix.

Spread a small amount of oil in an oven proof dish and start to layer courgettes with egg/cheese mixture.

Add the last of the cheese to the top of the bake and then put it in the oven for 40/45mins.


Here are links to all my favourite courgette recipes.  Plus another way to ‘use up’ an abundance of them is to cut them into disks and feed them to the chickens and quails…. they love them!
