- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 cup chopped bacon or 1⁄2 cup ham (optional)
- Lightly beat eggs.
- Add remaining ingredients& mix thoroughly.
- Spread into greased slice pan.
- Cook in a moderate oven for about 30 minutes or until brown.
Love It! I did not measure out zucchini, I just grated up two medium ones, probably closer to 3 cups. I subbed the bacon for carrot, omitted the cheese and added salt, fresh ground pepper. I also grated the onion, baked at 175C. I also used self raising flour so I left out the baking powder.
Made this for dinner last night and both hubby and little miss DD ate it all up. I was so happy to see that only a smidge of oil is needed as all the other similar recipes to this have a tonne of oil added. I used half zucchini, half carrot and ended up using 4 eggs. I also used wholemeal SR flour so left out the baking soda and grated my onion rather than diced. I topped mine with some tomato slices for a bit of decoration. Thanks for posting!
It was great to find a low-fat zucchini slice recipe; the one I currently uses a large amount of oil. Cooked wonderfully and tastes great. Thanks for a healthy alternative!
