You will need:

  • 10 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/2 package of turkey bacon (or regular)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter
  • 1/4-1/3 cup cold water

This is a very flexible recipe, so feel free to add or subtract whatever vegetables you like.  You can also sub in sour cream or ricotta cheese for the yogurt.  If using ricotta, you may want to use a cup instead and use less cheddar.  You can also use whatever type of hard cheese you have on hand.

Start by grating or chopping your zucchini.  Dice your tomatoes, onion, & turkey bacon.  Put all in a frying pan and saute for 5-10 minutes, or until vegetables are cooked through.

Cook at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve and enjoy!  I love the leftovers cold for breakfast.
