zucchini slice.

I made this tonight for tea. It was a big hit with all the children. They all wanted seconds. I would not have had enough if I hadn't doubled the recipe. So for those interested I found this recipe at another blog. I will be adding the website to my favourites so be sure to visit their site. It is called exclusively foods. They have lots of main meal dishes and sweet recipes too.

550g zucchini
1 medium onion,
finely chopped130g bacon (after fat and rind has been removed)
75g (1 cup, lightly packed) grated tasty (cheddar) cheese112g
(3/4 cup) self-raising flour
Salt & pepper
4 large eggs (we use eggs with a minimum weight of 59g)
83ml (1/3 cup) oil

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (160 degrees fan forced). Line an 18cm x 28cm baking dish or slice tin with baking paper.Finely chop bacon. Place onion and bacon in a heavy-based pan over medium heat.

Fry for about six minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion has softened but not browned. Set aside to cool.

Wash zucchini, remove ends and finely grate. Squeeze handfuls of grated zucchini over sink to remove excess liquid (this prevents the slice from being too wet).

Combine grated zucchini, cooled onion and bacon mixture, cheese, flour, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Use a fork to beat eggs and oil together in a small bowl. Add egg and oil mixture to other ingredients and stir to combine.

Pour mixture into baking dish and spread evenly.

Bake for about 45 minutes, or until slice is golden brown and firm to the touch.

Store slice in the refrigerator. Suitable to reheat.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
