School’s back for our household this week, so I’m on the look-out for easy, healthy recipes for school lunches and dinner.
We also have a glut of self-sown zucchinis that I’d like to make the most of, so the obvious choice is zucchini slice – a firm favourite in our household.
Similar to a quiche, this slice is made quicker and easier without having to worry about pastry – just mix all your ingredients together and you’re good to go!
Ingredients: 2 zucchini (grated) 2 (at least!) rashers bacon (chopped finely) 1 cup grated cheese (as mild or tasty as you like, depending on your dinners’ tastes) 1 cup self-raising flour 2 tablespoons of melted butter (or you can use oil if you prefer) 5 eggs Salt and pepper for seasoning to taste
Method: 1. Preheat your oven to 170°C and grease a baking tin. I like using spray oil and baking in my ceramic casserole dish.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the zucchini, bacon, flour and cheese. Add the melted butter and lightly beaten eggs, and combine all together. Add salt and pepper to taste and pour into your baking dish.
3. Bake for at least 30 mins, or until golden and set. It will be easier to cut if you let it cool a little first.
TIPS: – Add corn and grated carrot for an extra boost of veg for the kids. – Add feta or blue cheese and finely sliced roasted capsicum for a gourmet version. – Omit the bacon for a vego option – I enjoy a slice of this for breakfast. Thanks to the eggs and bacon, this is a filling way to start the day. – Serve with a side salad as a healthy lunch or dinner.

“The best thing my mum taught me was to always express my creativity. Don’t leave it inside, let it out. There is no right or wrong in creating. And that is how I started my journey to become a fashion designer which I will always have my mum to thank for.” – Josefin Wanner

“The best thing my mum taught me was to eat healthy. As a child I never appreciated her efforts, but these days I’m grateful it got so ingrained in my eating habits that I automatically eat healthy most of the time. It’s a big win, and a learning I will profit from every single day for my entire life.” – Chris Kaiser

“The best thing my mum taught me was that there is no reason to be jealous of anyone. She said that you have two hands and a brain. If you want something that someone else has, go out and get it on your own. That is how I live my life.” – Ilena Di Toro
“The best thing my mum taught me was when you can choose between doing the right thing, or the easy thing, always choose the right thing. It can be easy to ignore someone in need, to take short cuts, to only think about yourself at times. She always encouraged me to pause, take a breath, and ask myself what the right thing to do would be. It’s not always easy, but I have always tried my best to remember this advice in every moment.” – Kristia
