  • 200g rindless bacon (optional)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup self-raising flour (Can use GF alternative if needed)

Method

  • Prep Ingredients: Finely chop the onion and bacon (if using), grate the zucchini, carrot, cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese, sift the flour and crush the garlic cloves.
  • Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease and line a 30 x 20cm lamington/slice pan.
  • Heat a frypan over high heat and add the oil. Fry the onion for a few minutes until translucent and then add the garlic. Add the bacon pieces and cook for a few minutes – remove before they get too crispy. Take off heat and allow to cool.
  • Next, beat the eggs in a large bowl until combined. Add the flour and beat until smooth.
  • Add zucchini, carrot, onion/bacon mix, cheeses and oil. Stir to combine and season with salt & pepper.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and top with a light sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese. Bake in oven for 40 - 45 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Cut into 12 slices and serve with salad or steamed vegetables if for lunch or a side of salsa for snacks.
