Source: From The Cooking Club of America newsletter
Serves: 4

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 small zucchini, halved, sliced
1 small crookneck squash, halved, sliced (see note)
2 teaspoons minced garlic
8 eggs
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 oz. (1/2 cup) crumbled feta cheese
1 medium tomato, sliced

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion; cook 4 to 5 minutes or until softened. Add zucchini, squash and garlic; cook 5 minutes or until zucchini and squash have softened.

In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, oregano, dill, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low; add egg mixture to squash mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.

I made this recipe for breakfast this morning. I had a houseful of company. It was a big treat. I recommend it. It is delicious. This recipe comes from The Cooking Club of America newsletter. I subscribe to the magazine, and receive their monthly newsletter. I love their recipes.

A small green salad, your favorite muffin, and spicy tomato juice round out this menu.
