I’m not really comfortable taking credit for inventing this recipe, which I’m calling an act of nature. When tasked by my editor to invent a savory cobbler recipe using zucchini, I had no idea that it would be one of the best things I’d ever eaten. I’m not even exactly sure how it turned out so well. I thought that perhaps I could attribute its success to the pre-packaged cornbread mix I used, so I made a separate batch of muffins, which were good, but not spectacular. My guess is that this combination of creamy zucchini, onions, corn, cheese, and corn biscuit topping are far greater than the sum of its parts
