This recipe comes courtesy of a friend. The name of the dish has been altered to protect the innocent! My sister and I may have The Blue Cookbook, but of course other families have favourite recipes too. I feel privileged to add this one to my own repertoire.
It's a good way to get a substantial amount of vegetables into somebody without them even realising (or so I've heard!).
1 cup self-raising flour (or, 1 cup plain flour with a teaspoon of baking powder)
1 cup grated cheese
375g grated zucchini (which are also known as courgette)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 finely chopped bacon rashers
1 finely chopped onion
5 lightly beaten eggs
Salt and pepper, to taste
Mix it all together. Put it into a well-greased Pyrex dish or loaf tin. Bake at about 190-200 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until brown.
It is SO DELICIOUS. It would go well in lunchboxes either cold or hot, too. Providing you don't wolf it all down right after it's cooked, of course!
