    Was the hit of our church potluck. I don't know if it was needed but I gradually added the hot squash/onion mixture to the eggs to temper the eggs prior to mixing all together. It was savory and custardy and just wonderful.  -  26 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    If you are overrun with zucchini as I am, have I found a recipe for you. This is one of the best zucchini recipes I have found in a long time. It's delicious. I didn't saute the zucchini very long because I don't like mushy zucchini. It came out perfect. Thanks for sharing!  -  05 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
