Not Zucchini Zucchini Slice
« on: January 20, 2016, 07:10:36 am »
We have an abundance of zucchini and squash growing in our garden at the moment, and a child who thinks they don't like zucchini. Hence this 'recipe' was reborn! The tmx plays a vital role to save time, however you will need a big bowl to help with this quantity. Vegetables and cheese will need to be cut into sizes suitable for yur thermo mixer (approx 1-2 inches). There are some other great zucchini slice recipes here on the forum, but I thought I'd share another method :)

Not Zucchini Zucchini Slice

Serves - a lot! This quantity makes 1 25x35cm slice/lamington tin AND also fills a 12 hole muffin tray

280g cubed tasty cheese (omit for dairy free option)
700-800g yellow squash OR peeled zucchini (or just regular zucchini if your crowd don't mind green bits!)
300g potatoes
300g onion
200g smoked bacon
100g olive oil
salt & pepper
580g eggs (or 7 x 80g eggs)
330g self raising flour
2 cobs of corn kernels (optional)
2 tomatoes or a punnet of cherry tomatoes (optional)

1. Grate your cheese -5sec/speed 8- transfer into a large bowl or pot

2. Grate your zucchini/squash 3sec/speed 5** -transfer to your large bowl **depending on the amount of zucchini/squash you may need to do this in 2 batches. If you find that not all the zucchini has chopped, pull the large bits out, transfer the nicely chopped zucchini into your bowl and then wizz the large bits for another 1-2 seconds before transferring that to your bowl too.

3. Grate your potato -2sec/speed 5 -transfer to your large bowl

4. Grate your onion and bacon 2sec/speed5 -transfer to your bowl too.

5. Put oil, egg and flour in the tmx, mix 5sec/speed4 (you may need to scrape the bowl down and repeat).

6. Make a well in the centre of the ingredients in your large bowl and pour your egg mix in (and corn if using). Use a wooden spoon to mix all ingredients thoroughly.

7. Pour the mixture into greased tins. Slice tomatoes (or halve if using cherry toms) and place randomly over the top.

7. Bake in a moderate oven (approx 180oC, depending on your oven) until browned. For a large slab, you will need to bake for 45 minutes to an hour, for muffin size you'll need to bake for around 30 minutes.

Hi CC, approx 580g of egg (quite a bit), is needed. I've adjusted the recipe to make it clearer, thanks for asking :)

It is! I usually make it this way so we have enough for dinner, lunch and the freezer :)

This sounds lovely. I will probably only make a half quantity for us. I wanted some zucchini today when I was shopping. I didn't look at the price as last week I got 4 for $1. They were $2 each today!
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Wow $2 each seems ridiculous, wish I could give you some of ours, our fridge is full of them!
