Really good altho a little watery the first try. Added milk and a seasoning blend the second time around. Finished on the grill and let it set w/no heat for an extra 5 minutes. It was excellent. Great way to use up those extra garden ingredients!

Lovely way to use my first zucchinis this summer. I used spinach as my other veg. I sauted the onion, garlic, spinach , zucchini and onions in a cast iron skillet then added my egg mixture and placed directly in the oven. It took a very short time to cook since the skillet was already hot . Served room temperature with sliced avocados . Fresh tomato slices would be excellent with this but mine aren't quite ready yet. I will definately make again especially when the tomatoes are ready. Thanks Pixie for a yummy recipe that I think is very versatile depending on what ingredients are on hand.
