ZUCCHINI EGG BAKE by, Gina Gilbert-Green
Ingredients: 1/2 lb ground meat (I use either bison or grass fed ground beef, or turkey)
4 Tablespoons butter (I use coconut oil or ghee)
1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion (I use 1 whole yellow onion)
2 lbs zucchini, grated (I chop zucchini into bite size pieces and saute’ w/ coconut oil and onion)
3 eggs beaten ( I add more protein by using 1 full cup eggwhites and 1 egg)
1/3 cup grated Parmigiano/Romano cheese ( I use Romano)
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350F. In saute’ pan, melt butter (coconut oil) and add onion and zucchini. Saute’ until tender, 5-7 minutes. Put zucchini in a colander to drain off excess liquid. Add ground meat to saute’ pan and saute’ until just cooked. Combine meat and zucchini and season to taste (I use celtic Sea Salt, Pepper and BRAGG organic sprinkle/24 hebs and spices seasoning) Add eggs/egg whites, mix well and por into 8×8 square pan.
*IF you use the full cup of egg whites you may want to use a bigger baking dish (I use a 3 QT Ovenware baking dish) or a larger casserole dish. Sprinkle Romano cheese evenly over top. Bake uncovered 35-40 minutes. Great served with Trader Joe’s Chipotle Salsa on top!!! ENJOY;)
