Look What's Cooking!

At our house, most of the time, 6:00 PM means I'm in the kitchen cooking supper. For some unknown reason, some of my kids think it should be called dinner, which I can't figure out since it has been dinner and supper around here ever since they stopped saying 'first eat' and 'second eat'.  Breakfast was breakfast.  About the time they wanted to eat lunch and dinner, I wished we still had first and second eat. 

Most of the time, I also have it decided in the morning what I'm fixing for supper.  Tonight it was leftover Sour Cream Enchilada Casserole.  But, after Lynette and I found out that Jim was going to be late coming home she asked for 'that zucchni stuff that is all mixed up with egg and things'.  I absolutely adore that stuff and Jim likes it too, so I like to make it.  I could eat it every week, but I didn't think any of the kids liked it.  Since Lynette asked for it, I made it. 

Anything to encourage zucchini eating around here is a good thing.

I don't have a recipe for this stuff, I don't even have a name for it.  Lynette suggested Zucchini Mush, but that isn't a very good name.  Perhaps Zucchini Mix would be better.

So...This is how you make it.

Slice zucchini thinly, like 1/8", and fry in a cast iron skillet with a little olive oil.  I usually put a very little water in and cover it to soften it more quickly.  It should brown a little. When it starts to come apart when stirred, it is finished.

Then I add cut up cooked bacon or ham, egg and cheese.

Add a little salt and stir in.

Add the cheese and stir up until eggs are cooked and cheese is melted.

All ready to serve.

And ready to eat.

Looks very... uh... mushy!
But tasty :)

Jim likes to take zucchini, dip it in egg and flour and then fry it in the skillet with sausage. Similar idea I suppose!

You could call it Zucchini Scramble, because that's how it looks to me! I think it would be tasty too, maybe I'll try something like it sometime.

Zucchini Scramble is great!! Your Mom, Lynisha, taught me this, I wonder what she'll have to say. I like to dip zucchini slices in flour, egg, cracker crumbs and bake it. YUM!

For some reason I can't comment on your blog post! I'm reading your recipe, thinking wow--that's just like I cook it! :) Actually I prefer to mix summer squash with it. I planted both--just don't have any yet, and sure looking forward to it! It does "look" a little ah......"scrambled", but it is very good! I still laugh at the time we were talking about zucchini with my dad & he said there wasn't any way the stuff could be cooked that he would like it. Then I served it to him at my house once, & he's eating away and says, wow, this is really good, what is it?!!

written by Maxine as a comment on facebook and since I liked it I copied and pasted it for her.

LOL! Yes, one of my summer favorites. No squash here yet tho, everything is SO late. Since I'm neglecting my garden because of the heat, by the time I find my way there the weeds will have devoured everything! And...I do like the name Zucchini scramble ;)
