Super simple and absolutely delicious!
2 cups grated zucchini
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup grated onion
6 strips bacon, cooked crisp, diced
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 Tbs rendered bacon fat
Sauté vegetables in fat until tender.
Remove from heat to allow to cool, stir in bacon.
In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, cream, salt and pepper. Whisk well, stir in cheese.
Add cooled vegetables and bacon. Mix well.
Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with pan spray. Evenly distribute egg mixture among all 12 muffin cups. Bake in a preheated 400° oven for approximately 20 minutes until lightly browned and centers are set.
Remove from oven and allow to cool 10 minutes. Run a knife along the edge of each muffin cup and remove. Serves 4 to 6.
To make these as an appetizer you could put this mixture into mini muffin tins and bake for less time. These save and reheat quite well too. I also will make this up as a quiche. Fantastic!
