Farmer's Market Egg Bake

One of my favorite things about summer is our local Farmer's Market.  We like to go once a week and stock up on just-picked bounty of the season.  It seems like the last week in June all the good stuff really starts to crop up (heh heh heh) and we came home with tons of veggies.  Perfect for my world famous (ok, in-my-head famous) veggie loaded egg bake.

Farmer's Market Egg Bake

1/2 medium zucchini, peeled & diced
1/2 medium summer squash, peeled & diced
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
4-5 mushrooms (any kind'll do), diced
1 cup shredded cheese (I like Monterrey jack the best)
8 eggs
1/3 cup milk
7-8 dashes Tabasco (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon pepper (less if your not so fond of pepper)
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

1 - Spray 9x9 casserole dish with olive oil spray (or any cooking spray) and preheat oven to 425 degrees F
2 - Layer veggies onto the bottom of the prepared dish

3 - Top veggies with shredded cheese
4 - Whisk eggs & milk together until well combined
5 - Add garlic powder, salt, pepper & Tabasco to egg mixture and mix well
6 - Pour egg mixture over veggies and cheese
7 - Using a fork, stir gently to ensure egg mixture covers the veggies and soaks down to the bottom of the dish
8 - Using the back of the fork, press down the veggies and cheese to submerge as much as possible

9 - Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until the eggs puff up and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean

I like to eat my egg bake as-is with a side of fruit

Hubbers prefers to make a sandwich out of it...on toast...with extra cheese...and bacon

Munchkin prefers to eat a banana muffin instead

I love that eggs are such an inexpensive and great protein (if organic) and do alot of this kind of egg bake - great meal when you are fresh out of ideas for dinner too-
