I love serving foods that both complement and contrast with each. This flavorful egg dish can be made in minutes and easily doubled. Sometimes I use leftover taco meat or chopped ham instead of bacon.—Michelle Krzmarzick, Redondo Beach, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 31, 2012

Be prepared for your taste buds to dance!! Don't let the zucchini scare you from this recipe..You cant even taste it!! This is so wonderful if you are trying to disguise veggies in meals for your little ones. The only change I made was I use cheddar cheese instead of swiss and turkey bacon instead of reg. bacon.
