INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tbsp Light Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 2 clove Garlic
  • 1/2 cup, chopped Onions
  • 1 large Zucchini
  • 1 tsp, leaves Basil (Dried)
  • 8 oz, raw (yield after cooking) Italian Sausage
  • 8 large Egg (Whole)
  • 2 tbsp Tap Water
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese (Grated)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Heat the oil and butter in a large, ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Mince the garlic and dice the white onion, add to the pan and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes or until softened.  Slice the zucchini and add it to the pan along with the basil and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft but not limp. Add the sausage and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, water, salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into the hot pan over the meat and vegetable mixture. Let cook for a few seconds, undisturbed, then use a spatula to move the eggs toward the center while tilting the pan to let the uncooked eggs run to the sides. Continue cooking and moving the egg mixture for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the eggs are almost set (they will still be moist on the top).
  4. Sprinkle with cheese and place under the broiler until the eggs are cooked on top and the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Cut in quarters and serve immediately.
