RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
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).
One bowl recipe - This recipe can be made using a mixing bowl or a Thermomix.
Storing zucchini slice - Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Alternatively, freeze for up to 3 months – allow to defrost in the fridge.
Variations - This is a very versatile recipe - feel free to add grated carrot, sweet potato, peas etc. You can also omit the bacon entirely or substitute it for ham.
