Cheddar and Chive Savory Zucchini Bread Recipe

I’m back with another way to use those garden zucchinis. You didn’t think I was going to give you only one option right? Well, this time it’s I’m taking the savory route. This cheddar and chive savory zucchini bread will have you swooning at first bite!

I’m almost always a savory over sweet kind of girl. Give me a bag of potato chips over a box of candy any time. That thinking is what got my wheels spinning on transforming zucchini bread into something with that salty factor. After fussing around with a recipe, I struck gold {cheddar cheese gold that is 😉 }.

Now zucchini bread is something that can be devoured (this is the appropriate word when I’m eating it) for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

I’ve come up with a meal inspiration for each time of day in case you were coming up empty on how to enjoy this savory zucchini bread:

  • Breakfast: Eat your bread slice on the side of scrambled eggs and chicken sausage links
  • Lunch: Zucchini Bread BLT! Lightly toast and butter 2 zucchini bread slices. Put your bacon, lettuce, and tomato slices sandwiched in between them and dig in.
  • Dinner: Make a southern style BBQ meal with baked BBQ chicken, corn, and mashed potatoes (or cauliflower). Put a nice wedge of zucchini bread on the side.

Oh, and a few tools tips for you for this recipe:
