Recipe by Susan in Hillsboro

Fresh Garden Zucchini, Onions, & Green tomatoes sauteed/steamed, then cheddar and add eggs to top and steam a few more minuted till white is done....Mmmmmm! If you like zucchini, and keep chickens, this is a very versatile recipe. I came up witht his when cooking all that squash. I like the green tomato taste and wanted it for breakfast, so I threw some cheese on and added eggs ! Sounds a bit weird, but try it and you'll be hooked !

A great, simple recipe! Also good with a diced red potato added to the skillet, as I did for supper last night. However, next time I'm looking forward to using only zucchini when I make a breakfast version. Shouldn't be a problem as the zucchini plant is now working in overdrive! I'm adding this one to the zucchini files, thanks Susan!
