Scrambled Eggs And Multitasking While Making Dinner

Sliced Egg BakeI love breakfast for breakfast, but it’s even better to have breakfast for dinner. I don’t think there are very many breakfast foods I don’t like. Bacon, eggs, pancakes, waffles, cereal, oatmeal, muffins. OK, there isn’t a breakfast food that I don’t like. There’s something in my mind that makes it decadent to have breakfast at dinner time.

Tonight I made blueberry waffles for The Kid along with a baked egg recipe that I love. It’s almost like an omelet or scrambled eggs but you don’t have to sit and babysit it. You can put it in the oven and multitask on other things like homework or picking up the house. Plus it’s completely customizable for what you and your family like and what veggies you have on hand.

I had zucchini leftover from our produce share so I used that tonight. I’ve also made it with zucchini and carrots, or zucchini and yellow squash, carrots and peppers. Any veggie or veggie combination works well. You want the slices to be thin so they cook with the eggs. I used my new julienne slicer for this. You can also use a grater or knife to cut thin, matchstick slices.

I used salt and pepper tonight but you can also use different spices to change up the flavor. Try taco seasoning for a Mexican egg bake, or lemon pepper for a Greek version. You can also top it with cheese if you like cheesy eggs.

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 large zucchini, shredded
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9 inch square baking dish with non-stick spray. Shred zucchini using a grater, food processor or julienne slicer. Crack eggs into a bowl and beat slightly until fluffy. Fold in zucchini until mixed. Pour mixture into baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Serves 4, approximately 125 calories per serving.

If you have a larger family, you can double the recipe and bake in an 11 x 13 inch baking dish for 45 minutes. The slices refrigerate and reheat really well. I’m having another slice tomorrow for breakfast with a slice of cinnamon raisin toast. Makes me excited about the morning. Friday AND veggie egg bake with toast!

Have you tried baking your scrambled eggs before? What veggies do you use?
