  • 2 Zucchini, grated: Adds moisture and a subtle sweetness.
  • 1 Carrot, grated: Introduces a hint of sweetness and color.
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil: For sautéing the onion, bacon, and capsicum.
  • 1 Brown / Yellow Onion, diced: Adds a savory depth of flavor.
  • 2 Bacon Slices / Rashers, diced: Provides a smoky, savory note.
  • ½ Red Capsicum / Bell Pepper, diced: Offers a slight crunch and sweetness.
  • 5 Eggs, lightly whisked: The base of the slice, binding the ingredients together.
  • ¼ cup Milk: Adds moisture to the egg mixture.
  • 1 cup Self-Raising Flour: Gives the slice structure. If you don’t have self-raising flour, you can make your own by adding 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder and ¼ teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of all-purpose flour.
  • 1 ¼ cup Grated Cheddar Cheese: Adds a rich, cheesy flavor.
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste: For seasoning.

  1. Preheat the Oven and Prep the Pan:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and line a rectangular baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Cook the Bacon Mixture:
    • Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the diced onion, bacon, and red capsicum/bell pepper. Sauté until the onion is translucent and the bacon is slightly crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  3. Combine the Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated zucchini and carrot. Add the cooled bacon mixture to the bowl along with the lightly whisked eggs, milk, self-raising flour, and most of the grated cheddar cheese (reserve some cheese for topping). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything together until well combined.
  4. Pour into the Baking Dish:
    • Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese over the top.
  5. Bake:
    • Place in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Serve:
    • Let the zucchini and bacon slice cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  • Serving Suggestions: This slice can be served on its own or with a side salad for a more complete meal.
  • Storage: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven or microwave until warmed through.
  • Variations: Feel free to add other vegetables you have on hand, such as mushrooms or spinach, to the mixture for extra flavor and nutrients.
