Another Use For Shredded Zucchini


 As I've been using things up in the freezer to prepare for this year's harvest, I noticed I still had quite a few bags of shredded zucchini left!

Normally I would make zucchini bread and fritters, but since we're not eating baked goods or much grain, I needed to come up with another use.

I've added some of it to soup and spaghetti sauce with good results but wanted some other ideas too. So I started adding about 1 cup shredded zucchini ( with moisture squeezed out) to our scrambled eggs in the morning. I was surprised at how tasty it is.

Add some diced ham and you have green eggs and ham!

Adding veggies to eggs is a great way to sneak in some extra nutrients and uses up my stash too!

Ahh... I've done that before. It is really good.

Yeah. Squeeze it as dry as you can. Sometimes I even just melt a little butter in the frying pan. Toss in the shredded zucchini and get it nice and hot (cooked through) and then melt American Cheese over it and serve it as a quick side. It tastes like corn. :)
