I love eggs and have made many omelets filled with veggies like onions, peppers, tomatoes, asparagus, and spinach. This is my first time combining eggs and zucchini. I enjoyed this egg dish much more than an omelet because, unlike an omelet, baking the eggs preserves the creaminess of their yolks. Initially, four pounds of zucchini seemed like a lot but it cooked down to a much smaller amount. Grating the zucchini with my food processor grater blade made prep so quick and easy. I added six scallions for extra onion flavor. This recipe is very versatile. Instead of six servings for breakfast, I made two servings for lunch with three eggs per person. I prefer it without a sauce, but if I were entertaining company, I love the hollandaise option for a refined flair. Likewise, a selection of toppings like cheddar or parmesan cheese, sour cream, salsa or marinara would offer low effort options. Thank you, BarbryT, for a delicious recipe with a sophisticated presentation!
Not sure why this didn't turn out as well for me as for the other reviewers. Rather than squeezing out the zucchini, I drained it for the resting period in a colander in some cheese cloth. Then I just wrung out the cloth and drained the zuccini on a towel. (Hate to use paper towels!). It was definitely OK, but not sure I would do it again. Just not great.
These were mighty tasty, I tried with ranch dressing and then with grated parmesan cheese. This lost one point due to my aversion to having to wring out water from the grated zucchini (I am very sensitive to "hassle factor".) I think the salt should be included with the ingredients. But this recipe tasted Mah-vel-ous! Thanks for posting this recipe, BarbryT! Made for Top Favorites of 2008 Tag, based on Sharon123's recommendation.
Yum! I too scaled the recipe down to 1 egg and wished I had made more! I will make this again, with one of the recommended sauces. Thanks for posting this. Made for PRMR.
I am impressed! This was so delicious! I scaled the recipe back to 1 egg, and wished I had made more! I used a little more scallion too. Thanks so much for posting this one. I will definately make again! :) Made for PRMR game.
YUM! This was really easy & delicious. I made it for dinner tonight & mom wants it to appear on a brunch buffet. ;) That was my plan all along, lol! I left out the butter & used an entire bunch of scallions (can't ever get enough of those!). An dexcellent use of the really big zucchinis they nearly give away at the farmer's markets.
