Zucchini Slice. A Shared Recipe And A Delight!...

Sharing recipes and working with other people who are passionate about food and cooking is a big part of being a kitchen witch. I love looking for new recipes to try and discovering different ways to prepare some of my favourite ingredients.

I am very thankful to Caroline at the Lea House B&B who sent me a lovely email about her adventures with lemon possets. I enjoyed looking around her website (A visit may be in order soon. The gorgeous inglenook fireplace and a good book are calling me).

Anyway during my perusing I found a link to some of Caroline’s recipes and one immediately caught my eye. The zucchini (courgette) slice. This is something I have never tried before so I thought I would give it a go – especially as I still have a fridge full of zucchinis!

It was delicious hot and was just as good cold the next day! We served it both times with a simple green salad.

I didn’t have any bacon so I decided to add some sweet corn instead. I added about 1/2 a cup. I do think it would be wonderful with flaked smoked haddock and will certainly try that next time. The fresh red chilli I added for zing came through beautifully and gave each bite a nice little kick.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe Caroline. I will absolutely be making this again!

For those of you who would like to try Caroline’s recipe here it is as it appears on her recipe blog.

Zucchini (Courgette) Slice

Grate unpeeled zucchini coarsely, finely chop onion and bacon. Combine zucchini, onion, bacon, cheese, sifted flour, oil and lightly beaten eggs and season to taste with salt, pepper and something with a zing.

The quantities can be adjusted proportionately at will, and things other than the bacon can be added (flaked smoked haddock; grated carrot, peas etc for veggies).
