This recipe is the first in my handwritten book of favourite recipes which I started, oh, 25 years ago. The pages are stained, and I wrote the recipe out with a felt-tip pen, so some of the writing is smudged. But I almost know the recipe without looking it up so it doesn't really matter.

375 g grated zucchini - I think that's 12 or 13 ounces.
1 cup grated cheese
1 cup Self Raising flour
5 beaten eggs

Optional: 3 bacon rashers, chopped.

Fry onion (& bacon), mix zucchini, cheese, onion (bacon) beaten eggs & SR flour, add a small amount of oil to moisten if necessary. Pour into a greased square or rectangular dish (I use a 20 cm/ 8" square cake tin), bake in moderate oven for 30 - 40 minutes until golden brown.

You could add garlic, herbs, anything else you want. I often grate a carrot and add it.

hmmmm, will try this one soon! sounds good. I have a little nephew and niece coming to stay in a short while and they are rather fussy about their vegetables. This sounds like a really good recipe to try for them. I was already thinking of making something with zucchini for them. Or cauliflower and cheese, but I think the zucchini has won now!

This looks nice Judy, I haven't had zucchini slice since I was little but I remember loving it. I would be tempted to put some sliced tomatoes on the top of it as well.

Those kinds of recipe books are always great, my grandmother kept a set of handwritten recipe cards which I use all the time. The best recipes are the ones that are so smudged and stained that you can hardly read them, 'cause those were the ones she used the most.

Do you peel the zucchini before grating?

No David, leave the dark green skin on - makes the slice look ....um ... appetising, interesting, tasty - insert whatever description you want.
