Garden Egg Bake
Updated: Jan 23
Do you have a large family and need an easy, nutritious dish that will give you at least two meals? Do you need a large meal for a potluck? Or how about those tons of zucchini and chard you're growing in your garden and want a meal idea for that abundance? Then this meal is for you! I love this in the summertime because with a family of five, I can get two meals from it. But what's best about it is that it uses those zucchinis and chard that I have growing and need to utilize, preferably in different ways. This dish can be made for breakfast, dinner or for a potluck. In less than an hour, you will have a very large meal! Serve with homemade biscuits, or a side of pancakes or toast. These leftovers are great for us homeschool mamas who need a quick breakfast meal for that scheduled, busy day. It's even perfect for when you've been crazy busy all day, and your husband will be home before you know it. If you have these ingredients on hand, it's quick, easy, and filling. You will need zucchini, chard, a dozen eggs, garlic, onion, basil leaves, cheese and bacon. Lots of garden goodies! You'll also need a large pan (I use a 10x15 inch dish) or a roaster pan. The house will smell delicious with this pretty crowd pleaser! Enjoy!
