Jennifer asked the other day how I was going to use my squash and zucchini. My hubby Michael found a great recipe to use both, plus your onions and basil from the garden and your eggs from your chickens. Almost all the ingredients were produced on my tiny little backyard farm.
The recipe was found on myrecipes.com
3 tablespoons butter
2 small zucchini, chopped into 1/2-inch cubes (about 2 cups)
2 small summer squash, chopped into 1/2-inch cubes (about 2 cups)
1 small onion, coarsely chopped (1/2 cup)
12 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
Preparation1. Melt 3 Tbsp. butter in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat; add chopped zucchini, squash, and onion, and sauté 12 to 14 minutes or until onion is tender. Remove skillet from heat.
2. Whisk together eggs and next 3 ingredients until well blended. Pour over vegetable mixture in skillet.
3. Bake at 350° for 33 to 35 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and center is set. Sprinkle evenly with chopped fresh basil.
