Recipe of the Week: Zucchini Slice

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!

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

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.

– 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.
