Tomato pie may be a summer staple in your house, but be prepared to make room for another savory pie this season. This spiralizer zucchini and corn pie combines some of summer’s tastiest bounty to make one show-stopping dish.
The zucchini roses steal the show. With the help of the The Hamilton Beach® 4-in-1 Electric Spiralizer you can transform fresh zucchini into decorative ribbons. After spiralizing four zucchini using the ribbon cone, we divided the ribbons into 12-inch. pieces, then carefully wound them into delicate zucchini roses. After your roses are made, put them aside – they’ll decorate the top of the pie before it’s baked.
Next, prepare your pie filling. Combine milk, baking mix, eggs, basil (fresh or dried) salt, and black pepper. There’s no need to make pie crust or use store-bought – the baking mix in the filling helps create a crust-like texture around the pie. Stir in 1 cup of corn (use leftover grilled corn or slow cooker corn on the cob if you have it), cheddar cheese, bell pepper, and onion.
Pour the mixture into a pie pan then arrange the beautiful zucchini roses on top before baking. Sprinkle with extra corn and cheese then bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
This pie is as appealing to the eye as it is to the taste buds. It’s a colorful summer garden in a pie dish and you’ll find yourself swapping sweet for savory more often than not after trying it. Serve this slice of summer with a seasonal fruit salad (packed with plump berries and watermelon) for brunch or alongside grilled fish for a light supper.
The Hamilton Beach® 4-In-1 Electric Spiralizer makes creating spiralized veggies and fruits fun and simple enough for everyday use.
