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).
