Best ever zucchini slice

Fat Mum Slim /

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that this is the best ever zucchini slice recipe. Ever. {If you have a better one leave a link or recipe in the comments and I’ll give it a whirl and compare!}. We used to make all the time when I was a nanny. This makes a great take-to-work lunch, or easy dinner and can be frozen too.

1/2 cup olive oil
500g zucchini, grated
1 large onion, finely chopped
150g smoked streaky bacon, finely chopped {optional}
170g freshly grated parmesan cheese
150g self-raising flour
3 large eggs, light beaten
freshly ground black pepper
5 cherry tomatoes

♥ Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius. Oil and line and 25cm square tin with baking paper.
♥ Combine remaining ingredients {including bacon} except the tomatoes and remaining oil.
♥ Pour into the prepared tin and smooth over with the back of a spoon. Top with cherry tomato halves {as seen above} and drizzle with remaining oil {you can use less here, I always do}
♥ Bake for about 30 minutes until firm.
♥ Cut into 12-16 pieces and serve warm or cold. You can also freeze these to use for lunches or dinners. You could also make them into muffins, if you liked!
♥ It’s yummy if you reheat individual pieces in a hot oven because the base and edges go super crispy.

This recipe is from Stephanie Alexander’s The Cook’s Companion. Thanks to Jo for finding the recipe for me.
