This zucchini cobbler with corn, yellow beans, and tomatoes is topped with cornbread batter, and then all baked together for a dish the whole family will love.
There's a bit of prep to make this dish, but purchased pre-cut veggies and a cornbread mix makes this dish a snap.
If you grow some of your own veggies, this is one of the last months for zucchini and corn, and maybe you have a ton of these on hand right now. Especially zucchini. And there's a LOT you can do with zucchini.
One of my favorite dishes to make this time of year is this zucchini cobbler with onions, corn, tomatoes, jalapeño, and yellow beans. Best of all, it's topped with cornbread. So, so good.

Zucchini Cobbler Filling
- Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Butter an 8" X 8" baking dish.

- Whisk together the egg, milk, and melted butter in a small bowl. (Make sure the butter has cooled off a bit to prevent scrambling the eggs!)
- Combine the flours, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until completely mixed in.
