What do you do with a single zucchini? I recently ended up with a gorgeous looking yellow zucchini and two big beautiful beetroots from my bro’s garden. Not feeling adventurous to try them together for a Monday night dinner, I just went with a tried and true favourite, the Zucchini Slice. I paired my Lone Ranger Yellow, with two friendly green guys. This probably isn’t the healthiest slice but it tastes good, its easy and it always works. Plus there’s always lots left over for lunches.
- 375g zucchini, grated
- 3 bacon rashes or 4 slices ham
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- 1 cup grated cheese
- 1 cup SR flour
- 1/2 cup oil
- 5 eggs
- salt and pepper
Coarsley grate unpeeled zucchini, trimming ends. Chop bacon finely. Combine zucchini, bacon, onion, cheese, flour, oil and eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into a well-greased lamington pan (20 x 30 cm). I use a glass Pyrex one. It doesn’t say to but I top mine with a bit more cheese or breadcrumbs. Tonight I was feeling particular ooh la la and used Panko breadcrumbs. They worked a treat. Bake in moderate oven for 30-40 mins or until browned. Serves 4-6 (or one modern woman and her husband with leftovers).
P.S. Did you notice how many times I used the word “zucchini”? I did, its 9.
