Baked Zucchini Egg Tortilla

A uniquely cheesy squashy dish to serve at your next brunch.

I am in love with this little creation. Its super cute in presentation to serve to your guests or just for you. And if you don’t finish the whole thing just store the leftovers in your fridge and have it the next day, warmed up.

I definitely recommend making this with a shallot. You can also use an onion as a substitute though. You can beat your eggs or just plop them in the pan. They will take a few minutes longer to set when you’re baking though. For cheeses, I am apt towards feta cheese, but you can use anything you have on hand or prefer. Make sure you top yours with chili pepper flakes for that little kick!

This recipe was inspired from my Baked Egg Tortilla, so if you like this one, definitely check out that one!
