  • 2 zucchini and/or yellow summer squash, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices (about 2 cups)

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 4 cup crusty sourdough bread cubes (1/2-inch cubes) (about 8 ounces)

  • 1 4.5 ounce package Brie cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 4 eggs, beaten, or 1 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed

  • cup evaporated fat-free milk

  • cup sliced green onions

  • 2 tablespoon snipped fresh dill

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • Fresh dill sprigs (optional)


  1. In a medium saucepan cook zucchini, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes or just until tender. Drain zucchini. Set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, coat six 8- to 10-ounce individual casseroles or ramekins with cooking spray. In a large bowl toss together bread cubes, cheese cubes, and zucchini. Divide equally among prepared casseroles.

  3. In a medium bowl combine eggs, milk, green onions, the 2 tablespoons dill, the salt, and pepper. Pour evenly over mixture in casseroles. Using the back of a large spoon, press bread and cheese pieces down to moisten. Cover with plastic wrap; chill for 4 hours.

  4. Preheat oven to 325°F. Remove plastic wrap; cover casseroles with foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake about 20 minutes more or until a knife inserted near the centers comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. If desired, garnish with fresh dill sprigs.
