Melt the butter and olive oil in the sauce pan and add the zucchini once the butter is melted and starting to bubble.

Sauté the zucchini until it is warm, no longer watery, and starting to caramelize, about 3-5 minutes.

Break the eggs into the glass bowl and whisk to combine. Pour into skillet and stir until the eggs and zucchini are mixed together and the eggs have started to set.

Sprinkle parmesan or other cheese over the egg mixture and place the skillet under the broiler for 1-2 minutes until the eggs are completely cooked. Remove* and serve with a sprinkle of sea salt or fresh herbs, depending on your preference.
