Bacon zucchini and corn slice is just like a crustless quiche or frittata. Super easy to prepare you’ll have dinner on the table in about an hour, go to whoa. Great for snacks, lunch boxes or picnics, and it’s one the kids can make. What’s not to like!
We love the versatility of this type of slice as you really can add what ever combinations of veggies you have on hand. You can of course omit the bacon and just make this slice vegetarian, or substitute some chopped ham, canned salmon or tuna.
Growing up there was often a zucchini slice in Mumʼs fridge as an after school snack. Itʼs super easy to make and tastes great hot or cold, which is our preference. .
It’s one of those perfect recipes that allows you to use what you have in the pantry or crisper. Don’t be afraid to try your own combinations simply keeping the egg ratio the same, as the egg is the binder for all of the vegetables.
swap out the veggies
You can swap out the veggies for what’s on hand. Try adding…..
- capsicum ( bell peppers)
- baby spinach leaves
- mushrooms, crumbled feta
- you get the picture, add away…..
cut everything the same thickness
When preparing the vegetables try to cut all of the vegetables roughly the same thickness, this ensures that the vegetables all take roughly the same time to cook.
As you’re making one, why not make two and freeze the other. Cut the slice into serving sized pieces and wrap in plastic then freeze. The frozen pieces are perfect for lunch boxes.
