  • 3-4 zucchinis, thinly sliced
  • 1-2 potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 3 eggs
  • 80-100g wheat flour
  • 100g ham or sausage, diced
  • 100g cheese (any variety you prefer), grated
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 20-30g breadcrumbs
  • 1-2 tbsp vegetable oil


  1. Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 180°C (350°F). Lightly grease a baking dish with vegetable oil.
  2. Prepare the Vegetable Layers: Arrange a layer of thinly sliced zucchini at the bottom of the dish, followed by a layer of thinly sliced potatoes. Season each layer with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add Ham or Sausage: Distribute the diced ham or sausage evenly over the potato layer.
  4. Mix Eggs and Flour: In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, and then gradually whisk in the wheat flour until you have a smooth batter. Season the batter with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the Batter: Pour the egg and flour batter evenly over the zucchini, potato, and ham layers in the baking dish, ensuring it seeps down through the layers.
  6. Add Cheese and Breadcrumbs: Sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over the top, followed by a layer of breadcrumbs. The breadcrumbs will give the casserole a nice, crispy topping.
  7. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-55 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the vegetables are tender.
  8. Serve: Allow the casserole to cool for a few minutes before serving. This dish is excellent on its own or accompanied by a fresh salad for a complete meal.
