This easy zucchini slice is a fantastic flourless option for those looking for a lighter, gluten-free meal. Packed with vegetables, cheese, and eggs, it makes for a perfect breakfast, brunch, or even a quick dinner. Here’s how to make this wholesome dish:


  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 rashers streaky rindless bacon or leftover ham, diced into small cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 350 g (12 oz) zucchini, grated and excess moisture squeezed out
  • 7 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons Ranch Seasoning (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×9 inch baking dish or a similar size.
  2. Cook the Onion and Bacon/Ham:
    • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and bacon or ham. Cook until the onion is translucent and the bacon is crisp, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Prepare the Zucchini:
    • While the onion and bacon are cooking, grate the zucchini. Use a clean kitchen towel or paper towels to squeeze out as much moisture as possible from the grated zucchini. This step is crucial to avoid a soggy slice.
  4. Mix the Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Add the shredded cheddar, chopped parsley, optional hemp seeds, and Ranch Seasoning. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the cooked onion and bacon mixture and the drained zucchini. Mix everything until well combined.
  5. Bake the Zucchini Slice:
    • Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Spread it out evenly with a spatula.
    • Place in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the center is set and the top is golden brown.
  6. Cool and Serve:
    • Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly in the pan. Slice into squares or rectangles and serve warm.


  • Adding Vegetables: Feel free to include other vegetables like bell peppers, spinach, or mushrooms for added flavor and nutrients.
  • Cheese Variations: Swap cheddar for mozzarella, pepper jack, or any other cheese you prefer for different flavor profiles.
  • Serving Suggestions: This zucchini slice pairs well with a side salad for a light meal or can be a great addition to a brunch spread.


This flourless zucchini slice is not only easy to make but also versatile and delicious. It’s a perfect dish for using up leftover ham or bacon and extra zucchini from the garden. With its rich protein content and vegetables, it provides a balanced meal that’s satisfying and nutritious. Enjoy this simple yet tasty recipe any time of the day!
