Easy Peasy Zucchini Slice

Do you have one of those kids who will not eat their veggies, no matter what bargain you have up on offer? Master A used to be a great eater, trying whatever I put in front of him. Not so much anymore. He realised he can think for himself and say "NO!"

This zucchini slice is delicious and so easy to make. And I have started adding new veggies into it (just one at a time to make sure he doesn't notice!) As a general rule, I will make a double batch of this and keep it in the fridge and heat it up for lunches.

You will need:
2 medium sized zucchinis
1 small carrot (or half a large carrot)
1 onion (I just use a handful of frozen chopped onion)
1 cup self-raising flour
5 eggs
3 rashers of bacon (I have tried using diced bacon from the service deli at the supermarket before, but found you couldn't taste it very well in the slice, however it is a great time saver)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup oil
salt and pepper

Grate the zucchini and carrot, and finely chop the onion and bacon. Put into a large bowl and add the cheese, sifted flour and oil.
Lightly beat the eggs and add to the mixture. Mix it all in until you can no longer see the flour and it all holds together nicely.
Season with salt and pepper and pour into a well greased lamington tin. (I use a casserole dish and line it with baking paper).
Bake in a moderate oven for 30-40 minutes or until the slice browns.

Once cooked, cut the slice into squares and wait until cooled before putting into an air tight container and placing in the fridge.

This is a delicious slice, and you can add whatever veggies you want into it. Enjoy!
