Tips and Tricks to Get the Best out of Zucchini Egg Skillet

  • For even more flavor, add a tablespoon of butter with the olive oil. The creaminess of the butter will enhance the natural sweetness of the onion and zucchini and make the scrambled eggs even softer. Just the smell of the sauteed veggies in butter and olive oil is enough to melt your heart and tickle your palate.
  • For a more pronounced flavor, add about 2 cloves (or as many as you want lol) of minced garlic. You can go wild and even add some thinly cubed green pepper if you like.
  • Whatever you do, DO NOT overcook the eggs. It will ruin the texture and sometimes cause an odd smell that no one likes. Two minutes on high heat after cracking the eggs is enough. Take it off the heat, and let it continue to cook on its own.
  • If you choose to have this meal as a breakfast or lunch, it would make a great sandwich with French toast or wrapped in pita bread.
  • When it comes to garnishing this lovely dish, you can drizzle extra olive oil, add some freshly chopped parsley, or even add your favorite cheese. The options are so many! Don’t settle for basic, when you can have fantastic!
  • Serve it with your favorite vegetable. It mixes very well with raddishes and red peppers. Some thinly sliced avocado would make a great addition if you fancy it. It also pairs well with different kinds of salads.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I substitute olive oil with?

Coconut oil or avocado oil would taste great with this recipe.

Can I prep this meal in advance?

Absolutely YES! You can either slice your veggies the night before or sautee them the day before and keep them in your fridge ready for when you crave zucchini egg skillet! Just don’t wait more than a couple of days to make sure you’ve got the best flavor!

Can I add garlic?

Definitely, you can add garlic before zucchini and after the onions. Just be careful not to burn it.

How long can this be stored in the fridge?

I wouldn’t recommend storing food with cooked eggs. It’s best to consume this as soon as it’s done!

How to avoid smelly eggs?

Don’t overcook them! Seriously, don’t. The texture will be off and the smell will change. I recommend leaving it on high heat for a couple of minutes after cracking the eggs, then removing it off heat. Don’t worry! The egg will continue to cook because of the trapped heat in the skillet. This way would give you the best and fluffiest texture!
