Whoops... I haven't posted a recipe in agesss. Weddings + Illness + Job shenanigans = less blogging  :(

This is my go-to breakfast. Go-to meaning that I eat some version of this about 4 times a week. Yes, I'm very creative with breakfast. HA I've made this (and variations of this) for several people and always receive rave reviews. Super simple and easy, and you can use whatever you have in your fridge!

Serves 2-3 people Prep time: 6 minutes Bake time: 4-5 minutes

  • 3 bacon strips
  • 1 tbsp bacon fat (from bacon strips)
  • 1/2 C diced yellow onion
  • 1 C sliced and quartered zucchini (I used yellow, but green is equally yum)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tbsp water (or coconut milk)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • cracked black pepper
  • optional; 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper + chili powder

1. Turn your burner on medium heat under your stainless steel or cast iron skillet. (Must be stainless steel or cast iron because this pan will also be going into the broiler!)
2. Once your pan is nice and hot, begin cooking your bacon strips. Flip after two or three minutes.
3. Once your bacon reaches your ideal crunchiness, place them on a paper towel lined plate and blot the extra grease off the bacon. Once it cools, chop the bacon into small pieces.
4. You'll want to remove extra bacon grease from you pan depending on how fatty your bacon cuts were. You want about 1 tablespoon of grease left in your pan, enough to lightly cover the pans surface.
5. Turn the burner down to medium/low and turn your broiler on.
6. Add your onion and zucchini into the pan followed by your spices. Occasionally stir. You want your onions to turn translucent, about 4-5 minutes.
7. While your veggies are cooking, crack your eggs into a bowl and add 1 1/2 tbsp of water or coconut milk and whisk thoroughly.
8. Once your veggies are cooked, pour the eggs over the top and sprinkle the bacon pieces on top, as well as additional salt and pepper .
9. Put the pan in the broiler! Keep any eye on it- it can burn very quickly if you're not careful... believe me, I know!! ;) In my broiler 4:30 minutes is perfect. 10. Mangiare!

This recipe is even more bangin' when you dice up a spicy sausage and two green scallions. Yuuuuummmmm.
