Zucchini Cheddar Frittata

This is a great breakfast,that is definitely enhanced by using very good cheddar cheese.I like to use Kerrygold Irish cheddar.It makes all the difference in the world.You may also add chopped onion or green onion if you like.If using a regular onion,saute it with the zucchini.If using a green onion,just chop and add it to the egg mixture.
5 eggs,lightly beaten
1 c. good quality cheddar cheese
2 small-medium zucchini
2 tbsp. flat leaf parsley
1 tbsp.olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
salt &pepper
    In an oven proof  skillet(preferably a 9 inch pan),heat the olive oil & butter.Saute the zucchini until
tender,about 5 minutes,and arrange them in the pan so they lie flat.Season with salt & pepper.In a bowl,combine the eggs,cheddar,and parsley.
   Pour the egg mixture over the zucchini and cook over medium heat until the eggs start to set around the sides of the pan.Place the pan in the oven and bake about 5 more minutes until the top is golden and set.Slice into wedges and serve.
