    3. Combine the zucchini, breadcrumbs, cheese, oil, onion, egg yolks, garlic, seasoning, marjoram, parsley, salt and pepper. Add the cooked mushrooms. Stir well to combine. If the mixture is too wet, add a little more breadcrumbs.

    5. Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf tin. Smooth out the surface with the back of a spoon.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool in the tin. Run a knife along the edges and turn out to cool completely while still warm. Enjoy once completely cool.

    This was delicious. Smelt amazing too when cooking. I used 200g of mature cheddar and I think it would have been fine with a little less. I also used only about half the breadcrumbs in the recipe. Was still great.  -  27 Jun 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Amazing. Didn't have enough breadcrumbs so used less and some oatmeal. Worked fine. Have made it several times and been asked for recipe by everyone that's tried it !  -  21 Oct 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
