Another Zucchini Recipe

Eating a Squash a Day

It has been a bountiful squash year. Not only has the garden produced a bounty of pumpkins, but also patty pan, yellow summer, and zucchini.

I have been giving away squash and eating a squash a day to use up the unending summer supply.

I started the summer shredding a zucchini and scrambling it with eggs and milk. Lately I've been poaching eggs on top of the shredded squash for a delicious easy meal.

Poached Eggs and Summer Squash

you will need:

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 onion, chopped

equal amount of sweet peppers, chopped

1 medium zucchini or yellow squash, shredded

1/2 cup cheddar cheese

4 to 6 eggs

salt and pepper to taste

Place oil in a saute pan and heat. Stir in onion to coat and cook until clear. Add peppers and cook until onion pieces begin to brown. Add zucchini and cook for several minutes, stirring occasionally.

Top with cheese. Take a spoon and press to create a depression, one for every egg you are going to use. Carefully break each egg into a depression. Cover and cook for 5 minutes for a runny yolk or 6 minutes for a jammy yolk.

Serve hot.

Add a side of potatoes to make this breakfast more satisfying.

Breakfast Potatoes

You will need:

4 small potatoes, peeled and chopped

olive oil

a scoop of the cooked onion pepper mixture

pinch of rosemary

a generous sprinkle of paprika

salt and peper to taste

I saved 1/4 cup of the cooked onion and pepper mixture from the egg dish to use in these potatoes. If you are making them alone, simply place a spoon of olive oil in a saute pan and heat. Stir in chopped onion pieces to coat. Cook until clear. Add peppers and a pinch of rosemary and cook until onion pieces begin to brown.

Soak potato pieces in water for 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Place in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Add paprika and season with salt and pepper.

Set air fryer to 390 and heat for 3 minutes. Place potato pieces in air fryer cup and cook for 14 minutes.

Stir cooked potatoes into pepper bits and serve with a side of sour cream or guacamole or both.
