    Have made this a lot. I add fresh spinach and also use whole eggs. This is a keeper!

    This is very good. I cut down on the oil a little bit, and used a reduced fat mozzarella. Very tasty.

    I like it a lot. I made it with cooked bulgar on the bottom mostly, like a crust. A bit healthier, and I used real eggs too (I justified the real eggs because of the bulgar, haha). I think this would be lovely with baby spinich, or any other omelet-friendly veggies... keep up the good work!

    This was excellent! Although, I made 2 changes. I'm not a fan of egg substitute, since it has zero nutrition, so used regular eggs. No mozzarella in the house, used a combo of colby and jack. Thank you for a great recipe.

    I'd forgotten how delicious zucchini and eggs are together. This recipe works well with a mix of egg substitute and whole eggs. I'm on a low cholesterol regime but my husband is not (a real "meat and potatoes" guy!). I will serve this with a small side portion of ham or sausage for him and a second veggie for myself. Thanks for sharing this.
