Always Looking for Good Egg Recipes

We're always looking for good recipes that use up our eggs. 
I found this one off the Incredible Egg website, and it was a huge hit.
Not only is it easy and quick (as long as you have a food processor to do your shredding), but it's also healthy.

1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tsp. vegetable oil (we used olive oil)
1/4 cup water
2 tsp. instant chicken boullion
2 cups coarsely shredded carrots
2 cups frozen Western style hash brown potatoes
2 cups coarsely shredded zucchini
1 1/2 tsp dried dill weed
6 eggs

Saute onion in oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until tender, 3-5 minutes.  Add water and boullion; stir until boullion is dissolved.  Add carrots, potatoes, zucchini and dill; mix well.

Cook, covered, over medium heat until heated through, about 10 minutes.  Press 6 indentations into vegetable mixture w/ back of spoon.

Break and slip an egg into each indentation.  Cook, covered, over medium heat until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, 8-10 minutes.

As you can see, I did overcook my eggs a tad, but with babies involved it never hurts to cook them solid.
Served this with a side of turkey bacon.
A fun, economical new twist to breakfast for dinner!

Yummy! Breakfast is served at what time? I would love to come to your house! Hee Hee, as if you need another person huh? Just being silly. After a nightmare of a night with a 17 year old sick son I need to smile.
Thanks for your kindnesses and stopping by. He is resting comfortable with his antibiotic and he was wrestling with strep throat. Anne
