Zucchini Stacks Appetizer

Sharing is caring!

We are so excited that football season is here! We are big football fans and I love attending football games and tailgate parties. This weekend we attended a Rams Football game and it was great fun to be at the stadium.

While we did not tailgate this weekend, we love tailgating too. Our best tailgate recipes include our football rice treats and this hot pizza dip.

Healthy tailgate recipe


Hi friends! It’s tailgating season and today I’ve got a relatively healthy tailgate recipe for you. Even if you aren’t much into football, this fun and simple zucchini appetizer recipe is a great one to have on hand for entertaining.
















Since football season is beginning, I wanted to share my simple Parmesan Zucchini Stacks appetizer tailgating recipe with you today. This appetizer is so easy to make and it is made of vegetables so if you are looking for a healthier tailgating recipe, this is it. I originally posted it a couple of years ago and thought it deserved to be brought back.

Red potatoes and zucchini are dipped in a lovely olive oil dressing with herbs and seasonings. Then the vegetables are stacked and baked to perfection.

Parmesan Zucchini Stacks

These are so simple to make. Just slice your red potatoes and zucchini.


After slicing vegetables, you will brush with the olive oil dressing.

Then simply bake and stack and top with parmesan.

Delightfully tasting and you can feel good that they are made with vegetables.

Parmesan Zucchini Stacks Recipe

6 red potatoes

1 zucchini squash

1/4 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon minced onion

1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon parmesan cheese.


Preheat oven to 400°.

Wash red potatoes and zucchini and slice into rounds. Keep potatoes and squash separate for now.

Combine the oil, onion, salts and pepper in a bowl or container.

Coat the potatoes with the oil mixture and layer in a single layer on cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip potatoes and add zucchini rounds next to potatoes (do not stack at this time).

Bake an additional 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stack zucchini rounds onto potatoes. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve.

Dont’ forget to pin this for later.

My kids love those potatoes when I bake them that way, and I know I'm going to LOVE the zucchini on top! What a great idea!
