Zucchinis or courgettes, whatever you want to call them, are a deliciously versatile vegetable available all year around. Zucchini slice is undoubtedly an Aussie favourite, but to my surprise, the Brits had not heard of our classic dish. I have made this loads of times whilst being here and it has been very well received. I had never considered putting it on the blog as I always thought it was a bit too simple, but as they say, simple things are quite often the best. So here it is... my Zucchini Slice recipe (or for the English playing at home) Courgette Slice!
2 zucchinis finely grated
1 onion finely chopped
150g diced bacon or ham (I prefer bacon)
1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
6 large beaten eggs
1 cup (80g) cheddar cheese
1 clove of crushed garlic
Salt & Pepper
Handful of breadcrumbs (for sprinkling on top)
♥ Preheat oven to 180C and grease and line a rectangular oven dish.
♥ Place zucchini, onion, bacon, flour, eggs, cheese, garlic and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined.
♥ Pour mixture into oven dish making sure it has been spread evenly, sprinkle the mixture with a generous handful of breadcrumbs.
♥ Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and a knife comes out clean from the centre.
♥ Cut into squares and serve either hold or cold. Enjoy!
