One of the easiest and least expensive meals I can make this time of the year is Zucchini Breakfast Bake.
First start with 4 cups of cubed zucchini. Fill a large pot 2/3 full of water, and once it reaches boiling add the zucchini, and set a timer for 5 minutes, and preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
While that is boiling, grab your other ingredients:
3/4 cup of milk
2 cups of shredded cheddar
and whatever meat you may want to add is optional, we usually use breakfast sausage (it’s inexpensive and easy to work with).
You will need a 9″ x 11″ glass casserole container, and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
When the timer goes off for the zucchini, I drain it and place it in the casserole dish.
Then I will take the browned meat, and place it evenly over the zucchini.
In a medium to large bowl I mix together the milk, eggs, Parmesan, garlic pepper, and half of the shredded cheddar cheese.
Pour the mixture over the top of the zucchini and , and then sprinkle the top with the remaining cheddar cheese.
Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown. Then, take a knife and poke it in the middle of the casserole. If it comes out clean without any liquid, you are good to go!
Cut into squares and serve up.
I hope your family enjoys the zucchini breakfast bake as much as mine does! Please share pictures of your results in the comments section! And anything you did differently to help inspire other readers!

I’m April, a wife and mother of two. Since the end of 2010 I have been battling autoimmune diseases: and facing those have left me with limited physical abilities, limited energy, and limited funds; so I created this blog to document my journey : to simplifying my life, hopefully finding tips and tricks and resources to help save me time, money, and energy. I am hoping not only to share my journey, but to inspire others with similar challenges. Personally I think everyone would welcome ways to save time, money, and energy, but to some it is imperative. The content you can expect to see includes life hacks, organizational and time management resources, tips and tricks to saving money, ideas and resources for making money doing simple tasks or passively, and simple inexpensive gift giving ideas. To those of you who may be concerned that this may just be one big pity party, I want to be clear. I have conditions that have altered my abilities, but this is about taking as much control over my life as I possibly can, and to make it a positive experience. I will not however, turn anyone away if they ask about my illnesses specifically. Perhaps they are newly diagnosed, and need some advice that I haven’t shared. I encourage those individuals to contact me any time. I want people to be able to positively bounce ideas off of one another to make it a blog that everyone can benefit from.
