Zuchini Slice

14 Sep


Zucchini slice is a staple in our house, it makes the menu plan every week. Yes, every week!!I can make this slice in my sleep!!

This slice ticks all the boxes, its healthy, quick & easy to make, can be eaten hot or cold, is great to batch make & freeze, but best of all everyone loves it!

Miss four & six like it cold in their lunch boxes, Mr Mama Going Natural likes a huge slab heated after work as a pre-dinner snack & me, well I just like it anyway I can get it – because it disappears around here.

I like to make a double batch & once cold portion into single serves that I then cling wrap & hide in the freezer as quick lunchbox snacks. They go into the lunch boxes straight from the freezer & are ready to eat by lunchtime.

I make this zucchini slice with all the ingredients my family like, so feel free to add or omit any ingredients. If you don’t have rugrats I would recommend adding a little ground pepper – I can’t even add a single grain, my girls can sniff out pepper a mile away & will declare the offending food too spicy. I figure the mister & I are going to be stuck eating bland, un-herbed food for about another five to ten years! After which this house will be spice city!

The only other thing I would recommend is using as bland an olive oil as you can find, as that can add a certain spicy element – which the rugrats will sniff out.

What makes this slice so delicious is the caramelised bacon & the parmesan cheese, it makes for a yummy, flavoursome cheesey slice, just without all the calories.
