Serves 4

Zuc­chini & feta slice In­gre­di­ents

5 eggs 1 cup self-rais­ing flour

1 tsp salt and grinds of black pep­per

500g (5 medium) zuc­chini, coarsely grated

2 spring onions, finely sliced

4 rash­ers streaky ba­con, diced

150g feta cheese, crum­bled (or ched­dar, grated)

1/4 cup olive oil

10 fresh mint leaves, finely sliced, op­tional

Method

1. Pre­heat oven to 180°C. Use a lit­tle but­ter or oil to grease base and sides of a 30cm x 20cm shal­low bak­ing dish or sponge roll tin.

2. Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Add flour, salt and pep­per and whisk un­til smooth. Place grated zuc­chini in a clean cloth, twist the top and squeeze over the sink to re­move ex­cess liq­uid (this stops slice from be­ing heavy and wet). Add zuc­chini to flour-and-egg mix­ture, along with spring onion, ba­con, cheese, oil and op­tional mint leaves. Stir un­til evenly com­bined.

3. Pour into pre­pared dish and bake in oven for 40 min­utes or un­til golden, when mix­ture bounces back when lightly pressed. Stand for at least 10 min­utes be­fore slic­ing.
