Zucchini Slice

Deliciously simple Zucchini Slice. Whether it's for a light lunch or picnic, a lunchbox addition or as a side to a main meal, Zucchini Slice is a firm family favourite. You can eat it warm or cold and it freezes brilliantly too. Mix in your favourite combination of vegetables or keep it classic like I have with generous amounts of zucchini, corn, bacon and cheese. It's as easy as mixing the ingredients and baking in the oven. Inexpensive, fast and packed with vegetables.
