Zucchini and Eggs

Rated as 4.56 out of 5 Stars

"My Dad (who's Italian) used to rustle this anytime dish up for himself. When I was in my 20s in 1996, I flipped when I saw it being served in a trendy Greek restaurant as an appetizer. It's a perfect, tasty meal."

  1. Stir the eggs and Parmesan cheese together in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook the zucchini in the hot oil until softened and lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Season the zucchini with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to medium; pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Cook, stirring gently, for about 3 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and cover. Keep covered off the heat until the eggs set, about 2 minutes more.

I grew up to love zucchini because of this "frittata" as we called it. It was everyday food for us, but only during summer when Grandma, and then Mom, grew zucchini in their garden. I feel for...

It was alright. I didn't particularly care for the zucchini. I added onion and that made the eggs really good with the garlic. Now I have a new way to cook eggs at least.

My husband and I thought this was very good. I needed a quick lunch that used up some garden produce. The egg flavor complimented the zucchini nicely. This was quick, easy and tasty. I added oni...
