Four small zucchinis or 2 really big ones

One cup of self-raising flour

One onion (finely chopped)

Two or three rashers of chopped bacon

A quarter of a cup of olive oil

Five or six eggs

One cup of grated cheese

Salt and pepper to taste


Chop up washed zuchinnis, skin and all, in a food processor or by hand if you don't have one and place in a large mixing bowl. Add onion, flour, salt and pepper, bacon, oil and cheese and mix together. Lastly, add beaten eggs and mix in.

Pour into a slice dish or oblong casserole dish and cook in a moderate oven until firm and brown on top..approx. 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with a fresh garden salad and enjoy!

Tip: nice with tomato sauce/ketchup..especially if it's home made.
