1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups thinly sliced zucchini
6 Large Chino Valley fresh eggs
1/2 cup grated Fontina cheese
2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley

  2. Mix eggs, cheese and parsley. Add to skillet and cook until bottom is set.
  3. Cover to cook top or place under a broiler.

  • To Blend Eggs Easily: Poke the yolks with a knife or fork first to break the protective membrane, then mix.
  • To Peel a Garlic Clove Easily: Cut off the ends and then bang the clove against a cutting board with the flat of a knife. The garlic will jump out of its skin.
