Zucchini Slice (Thermomix Recipe Included)

To be completely honest, I have NO idea where I got this recipe… I have a feeling that my Aunty Joan found it in a women’s weekly magazine many moons ago and made it for the family. I think we have been making it ever since and of course it has been changed and tweaked to the recipe you see today.

Variations

Zucchini Slice really is an Australian institution recipe… and this is my family’s recipe. Please realise that now I add all sorts of things to it. I add grated carrot instead of bacon when I want to make it vegetarian, I just add grated carrot as well as bacon too. If it is growing in the garden, I always put in some cooked (drained) chopped up spinach as it just adds an extra dimension. You could chops up a few extra herbs, add different cheese, pop in that half a can of corn that was left over from some other recipe or chop up that half of a tomato. Really the only thing you need in to be called a zucchini slice is the zucchini and the eggs!

I have also just adapted it for the Thermomix and because the it chops a lot finer it has a great taste without chunky bits, so you could possible hide more vegetables if you so desire! (evil cackle)

I forgot to take pictures (I’ve been so busy and I was making it for lunches), but it really is an easy recipe, so you don’t need photographic help! If you like this recipe you would love my blog on Mini Vegetable Frittatas.

    A friend recently made this recipe and it was delicious! I am interested in making this as a finger food for my 10 month old and wondering if this recipe freezes well (or if freezing should be avoided altogether?)

      Hi…. 🙂 thanks do much for stopping by to say hello… I’m glad you like the recipe 🙂
      It does freeze ok… But sometimes is a bit watery when defrosting… If you heat it up in the oven from frozen that helps as the water evaporates, but be careful as it can then become overcooked! I gave forgotten about then she reheating and they ended up like rubbery pucks!!!! LOL

    Hey Liz,
    This one is a huge hit in our house! The kids take it to school for breakfast on our early mornings. The staff at before school care were so impressed they’ve added zuchinni slice to their afternoon tea menu.

    Thanks

    Liz… Looks relish. Frittata is a solid go to meal in my house. Haha… Your advice to really blitz the veggies is gold, my sister refuses to eat vegetables, that’d be a good way to sneak in the healthy. 🙂
