If any of you have a zucchini bread recipe I would be glad to have it as I have a runaway zucchini on hand.
Here is a meatloaf recipe I have that uses 2 cups of grated zucchini - it was good and you wouldn't notice the zucchini.

(I felt much more seasoning was required from that in the original recipe. I added about 4 cloves of minced garlic, several herbs from my garden - basil, rosemary, sage, marjoram & oregano. A little of this and that, whatever smelled good. For a little added zip I added Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning. The glaze was a tasty addition.)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups shredded zucchini (I used the fine side of the box grater)
1/3 cup ProgressoŽ plain bread crumbs
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 lb. (I used 2 lbs., 1 ground round and 1 hamburger) lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1. tablespoon packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix all meat loaf ingredients until well blended. Press mixture into ungreased 9 1/2-inch deep-dish glass pie plate. Bake 35 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix all topping ingredients.
3. Remove meat loaf from oven; pour off drippings. Spread topping over loaf. Return to oven; bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until thoroughly cooked in center and meat thermometer reads 160°F. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
