Zucchini and Eggs

Zucchini and Eggs are a great way to help you use all those zucchini that are growing in your garden.  I remember my father making this for us on Saturday mornings and we though it was such a fantastic treat.  He would venture into the garden and come back with zucchini and we would watch him make breakfast.  Dad gave us the responsibility of making the toast.  The memories this dish brings back are wonderful.

This is a very simple recipe and you can alter it to your liking.  You can add a few basil leaves, maybe a tomato, or even use mozzarella cheese instead or parmesan.  Regardless of how you make it, you are going to love it.  Share it with you family and make some memories of your own.
