I like to think that during the summer season, I am more creative with my cooking. All the ripe produce is beautiful and there's so much to choose at the markets. Truth is, I'm actually a tad bit lazier. I find myself making meals with all the odds and ends. Those meals are also usually simple at best. It's easy to make a delicious meal, hardly any effort required.

This egg skillet has been a favorite of mine through the years. Zucchini and sweet corn is a true summer staple and I've found it's hard to go wrong with this simple combination. This skillet is straight forward but it's really made with a heavy hand of homemade salsa (seriously, this stuff is the best.) Make this egg skillet for breakfast or lunch- you won't be disappointed.

Egg Skillet


Egg skillets can really be anything you want it to be or made for any type of diet. My favorite thing during the summer is to toss whatever I have on hand which usually includes zucchini. Summer squash would also work well!

Cheese: Top with a sprinkle of feta or queso fresco if desired.

Vegan: Drop the eggs and add a simple tofu scramble.

Avocado: If you have it, top this skillet with fresh avocado or guacamole.

Grains/Legumes: Add a cup of cooked grains or legumes. Lentils, black beans, quinoa, or millet- all solid additions!

  1. Thank you, this tastes amazing! It doesn't even take that much time to make, will definitely make this everyday until it starts to taste bad... Thank you anyways!

  2. Made this last night for dinner (minus cilantro & lime juice, but added lots of garlic and black pepper) with a bit of brown rice mixed in. It was absolutely delicious! A perfect light summer dinner! Thank you!

  3. I would like to know if this is a single serving or two servings. It sounds like a single serving, especially based on the nutrition info. It says "X servings" at the top of the recipe…

  4. This meal was ridiculously good! For me, it was 1 generous serving (ie, I was stuffed), but eating only half wouldn't have quite filled me up for dinner. Loved it and would make again.
