Zucchini Slice

Ingredients

  • ½ Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 200g rindless bacon, finely chopped (Optional)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup self-raising flour, sifted (Can use GF alternative if needed)
  • 2 x medium zucchini, grated
  • 1-2 medium carrots, grated
  • ½ cup grated cheddar cheese

  • 125g ricotta
  • 60mL olive oil
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • Green salad and/or steamed vegetables, to serve

Method

  • Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease and line a 30 x 20cm lamington/slice pan.
  • Heat a frypan over high heat and add the oil. Fry the onion for a few minutes until translucent and then add the garlic. Add the bacon pieces and cook for a few minutes – remove before they get too crispy. Take off heat and allow to cool.
  • Next, beat the eggs in a large bowl until combined. Add the flour and beat until smooth.
  • Add zucchini, carrot, onion/bacon mix, cheeses and oil. Stir to combine and season with salt & pepper.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and top with a light sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese. Bake in oven for 40 - 45 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Cut into 8 (or 16) slices and serve with salad or steamed vegetables if for lunch or a side of salsa for snacks.
