Need a quick, healthy breakfast for a busy morning? I whipped up these Scrambled Eggs with Grated Zucchini yesterday morning, and they were fantastic.
I had leftover zucchini in the fridge from dinner the night before. It was already shredded. BONUS!! I also had some crumbled, cooked bacon in the fridge from a previous night’s dinner. Having lots of leftovers sitting around is key for sticking to a real food/primal/paleo diet.
So I drizzled some olive oil in a hot pan, sautéed the shredded zucchini for a few minutes until it was just beginning to brown, then I added a clove of minced garlic and the bacon. I stirred that around for about 30 seconds before adding 4 whisked eggs to the pan. My husband whisked the eggs while I sautéed the veggies, and we had the whole dish thrown together in less than 5 minutes. I just stirred the mixture around in the pan until it was cooked through, and I also added some shredded raw cheddar and garnished with chopped scallions. But the cheddar is totally optional, of course. I also salted and peppered it when I put the eggs in the pan.
This is definitely going to be a regular in our breakfast rotation…
