Cheesy Zucchini Egg Bake

I was going to call this a crustless quiche, but it really isn't very much like a quiche at all.  It's a breakfast casserole and not very different from the Omelet Muffins that I like to make.  This is kind of the lazy version of omelet muffins and also a little easier to wrap for mealpods than the muffins are.  The cheese seems to give this enough fat that it freezes and cooks well from frozen.  It works best if you put the mealpod in the fridge the night before and just pop it in the microwave for breakfast.
