Quick & Easy Zucchini Slice (Courgette Slice)

Our simple zucchini slice recipe is made using pantry and fridge staples – making it a budget-friendly option. 

*For ingredient quantities and the method, please scroll to the recipe card at the bottom of the post

Zucchini – also known as courgette. This recipe is a great way to use up zucchinis when they’re in season. 

Self-Raising Flour – also known as self-rising flour. You can buy this from any major supermarket or make your own using plain flour. 

Eggs – use large eggs (around 55g-60g each).

Oil – I recommend using vegetable oil in this recipe as it has a subtle flavour. You can use olive oil, however, this will change the taste of the dish.

Cheese – Any brand of Tasty or cheddar cheese works beautifully in zucchini slice.

Onion – Use a medium-sized brown onion.

Bacon – You can use any kind of bacon or ham for this recipe. Streaky bacon, middle bacon rashers, shortcut bacon or deli ham all work great. This is also a great way to use up any leftover Christmas ham (simply chop into small chunks).

    Do you not cook the bacon first? Recipe doesn’t say, but I thought you have to be wary with pork and cooking times?
    This is the best zucchini slice recipe I’ve found. I added carrot and cherry tomatoes. My fussy 2 year old, who has refused zucchini slice for months, wolfed it down.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Odette, the bacon is chopped very small so it will cook in the oven (otherwise you can use ham if you prefer). Oooh delicious! I love smuggling in a few extra veggies too! xx
