Ingredients you'll need...

2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup self-raising flour
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup diced bacon
1 cup grated cheese
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
1 clove finely grated garlic
Salt and pepper to taste

    How to make Zucchini Slice...

    1. Start by preheating your oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Prepare a 20cm x 30cm lamington pan by lining it with baking paper.
    2. Key step alert: Coarsely grate the zucchini and give it a good squeeze to remove excess liquid. This ensures your slice isn’t soggy.
    3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the zucchini with eggs, onion, flour, cheese, bacon, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper until well mixed.
    4. Pour the mixture into your prepared pan, leveling the top with a spatula.
    5. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown and firm to the touch. A skewer inserted into the center should come out clean.
    6. Allow it to cool slightly before slicing into squares. Enjoy warm, or let it cool completely for a nutritious addition to your lunchbox.

    Master Tips

    Freezing for Later: Wrap your Zucchini Slice tightly or store it in an airtight container to freeze for up to 2 months. This way, you preserve its freshness and flavor, ready for when you need it most.
