Surprisingly easy way to enjoy your summer bounty of zucchini. Sauteed zucchini with jack cheese is such a satisfying and flavorful side dish.
  • 2 zucchini, peeled, sliced thin & quartered
  • Bacon grease or olive oil
  • ½ Tbsp butter
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • 1 -2 oz. monterey jack cheese
  1. Warm bacon grease or olive oil in skillet on medium heat.
  2. Place sliced and quartered zucchini in skillet, and saute for about 20 minutes. At times I used a lid to speed the softening process.
  3. While cooking add salt, pepper and butter.
  4. When zucchini is done, finely shred jack cheese over the top and let melt.
*omitting bacon grease would make this dish vegetarian
