Easy egg and ham slice

Easy egg and ham slice

Makes 12 medium or 18 small/snack sized servings

 

Ingredients

  • 2 zucchinis, grated
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and grated
  • 4 slices of lean ham, chopped (Or 3 rashers of bacon, fat removed, chopped. Leave the meat out altogether for a vegetarian alternative)
  • 1 cup (115g) reduced fat cheese, grated
  • 1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • Cracked pepper to season

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. Pour into a greased slice tray and bake for 30 to 45 minutes until slightly browned on top and set in the centre.
  4. Cut into slices. Serve warm or cold.

 

Tips

  • Don’t mention the veg! Naming it ‘Egg and ham slice’ rather than ‘Zucchini slice’ may make it more appealing to students.
  • For variations, try replacing the ham with 1 cup of tuna, or the carrot with half a cup of canned corn.
  • Serve with a salad to make into a meal for upper primary and secondary school students.
  • Remove the ham to make a vegetarian version.
