The easiest zucchini slice recipe, perfect for a light family meal and in school lunch boxes

Zucchini Slice




Yield 12 serves



  1. Whisk eggs
  2. Add flour and baking powder and whisk. Don't worry about a few lumps, they will disappear during cooking
  3. Finely dice the onion, add to the eggs (you do not need to precook anything, the onions will go lovely and sweet)
  4. Finely slice the bacon, add to the eggs,
  5. Grate the zucchini and add to the eggs, along with the grated cheese
  6. Mix everything together
  7. Pour into a loaf lined with baking paper 
  8. Bake at 180 degrees celsius for around 40-50 mins until golden


This is a very forgiving recipe.

  • Use almost any type of flour.  Rice and wholemeal work very well. You can make it without any flour (remove the baking powder as well),  however, the consistency will not be as firm, making it more difficult as a finger food for a young child.
  • Freeze and reheat it in the microwave
  • Add cooked rice (½-1 Cup) if you want to add some extra carbohydrate
  • Use overgrown courgettes that are practically marrows!
  • Take out the bacon, and voila it's vegetarian
  • Change the vege! Grated Carrot, Finely Sliced Leek, Grated Pumpkin, Finley Sliced Pumpkin, whatever you have will work
  • This is a great finger food for young kids, even the toothless ones. My one-year-old has been loving it from around 7 months even though she is still a gummy shark
