Zucchini Slice

While Scott is away Jonathan and I will eat our favourite foods!  Yes we had a coup!

Scott aka Crash Test Dummy One. doesn't like zucchini unless its dissolved in something and he cannot identify it and eggs well he eats them but only fried or hard boiled.

Jonathan aka Crash Test Dummy Two. used to hate zucchini but now loves it and eggs well he used to be "allergic" to them when he was a child (according to the child) then he tried my boiled eggs and fresh bread soldiers one day and he was hooked.  Eggs any way they come for this one.

This is a popular and easy slice to make.  Everyone has their own version and ways of serving it, you can have this as a light lunch or dinner served warm or hot with salad, or as a side at a BBQ or picnic or you can give it to kids for their lunch, this is my version ...

Narelle leave out the bacon and make this for yourself, I think even Glenn will eat this!

2 rashes of bacon, chopped
1 onion chopped
2 zucchini grated
2 carrots grated
1 cup grated tasty cheese
1/2 self raising flour
6 eggs lightly beaten
salt and pepper

Pre heat your oven to 180C, butter a baking dish or slice tin.

Saute the bacon and onion until the onion is softened.  

In your food processor with the grater attachment grate your carrots and zucchini.

On a clean tea towel place 3 pieces of paper towel and then your grated veg, gather up the sides of the tea towel and twist them and over the sink press out all the juice from the veg.

In a large mixing bowl place the veg, cheese, salt and pepper and the flour, oops blurry picture, sorry about that.

Toss together so that everything is coated in the flour, this stops everything from sinking to the bottom of the dish.

Add the bacon and onions and mix through.

Quickly mix the beaten eggs through the mixture and place into your baking dish or tin.


Press down flat with your wooden spoon and bake in the oven.  If using a baking dish for 35 to 45 minutes or until cooked or if using a slice tin 25 to 35 minutes or until cooked.

Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving if serving hot.


  1. I make this once a week... There's never any left for leftovers. Always a hit!

    1. I think this is one of those world wide slices that most families love and a great way to get some veg in the kids :)
