Zucchini Frittata

This easy vegetable frittata can be made with all zucchini or part zucchini and part yellow squash. I use young zucchini and yellow squash that are about 1 inch in diameter. These smaller squash contain less moisture than larger zucchini, hold their shape better, and make a pretty frittata.

      In a large frying pan, over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the garlic and sauté until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the zucchini to the pan, stir to combine, and cook for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.

      In a large bowl, using a wire whisk, lightly beat the eggs just until the yolks and whites are fully combined. Add the sour cream and whisk until smooth and well combined. Gradually whisk in the milk. Stir in the salt and pepper. Add the zucchini mixture and the Gruyère and Parmesan cheeses to the egg mixture and stir gently until combined. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
