Zucchini Breakfast Skillet

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by pamela t.

A great way to eat your veggies, and kids will love this, too. If you want, you can make this ahead and let sit in a baking dish overnight. The next morning simply pour into a cast iron skillet.Be sure and use real bacon bits NOT imitation. The flavor is different.

What a GREAT way to use zucchini. This breakfast dish was wonderful. Even those who don't like zucchini will love this. We loved the combination of the zucchini, cheeses and bacon bits with the eggs. Thanks so much for sharing this keeper, Westtextazzy.
