1 large onion
90g ham or bacon pieces (optional)
1/2 cup oil
1 cup SR flour (160g)
1 cup grated cheese (100g)
salt, pepper, mixed herbs (to taste)
Preheat your oven to 170C (350F).
Grate coarsely (or chop) zucchini, onion and cheese. Add chopped ham, if adding, and all remaining ingredients. Spray shallow dish with ‘pure and simple’. Tip in mixture.
Put into oven and cook for about 30 __ 40 minutes or until brown all over and firm.

*I don’t measure zucchini __ I just use 3 medium sized ones. A trick I learned from my daughter is to grate the zucchini separately and squeeze the water out, otherwise it can turn out too wet and it takes a lot longer to cook. If I use bacon pieces (and I don’t always) I buy them already done and grated cheese in the packet. I don’t measure the cheese, just pour a heap in __ probably more like 2 cups. I also add a tin of drained mixed veggies. ~ Veronica
We met Veronica and Dave through their grandchildren when we first came to Australia. The kids all love the beach and now we get together every school holidays and sometimes in between. What Americans call bars, Australians call slice. Whatever it’s called, I love this recipe. Most recently I made it with leftover roast asparagus and carrots chopped and cottage cheese that needed to get used. I left out the oil as there was plenty on the roast veggies. It was so yummy. It’s a good recipe to play with, is good hot or cold and perfect for lunches. The best part is that James actually eats it. There’s not many things I can say that about. ~ Karla
