    I followed instructions and added a Tablespoon of shredded Parmesan cheese. Smooch! Perfect!  -  06 Dec 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had to flip it in parts instead of whole. I’ll keep trying. It was delicious. I sautéed the onions and zucchini with olive oil and added a little butter in the pan before adding the eggs. I also added some shredded cheese before I flipped it. I used Zatar seasoning.  -  07 Aug 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Adding 2 tablespoons of shredded parmesan made this one a winner!  -  28 Jun 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
