How do you make Gluten Free Zucchini Slice?
It is very easy to make a gluten free zucchini slice.

We begin by preparing our zucchini (which is called a courgette in the UK) and shredding or grating it. These days with so many grocery stores catering to our busy lifestyles, you are able to purchase pre shredded zucchini quite commonly. So that is alway an option to consider if the thought of washing your food processor has you running for the hills!

Use can also use a box grater or hand held grater. The fact is we need 4 cups of grated zucchini and that will come from approximately 5 small zucchinis.

I go into more detail about this in the recipe, but whilst we are on the topic, I recommend more smaller zucchinis as opposed to fewer larger ones as they have the potential to be a very wet ingredient and no one wants mushy slice!

The Simple Steps to Make Zucchini Slice are:
Preheat your oven (it will take a lot less time to cook if you do this)
Spray a baking dish with cooking oil
Top and tail your zucchinis
Grate your zucchinis
Crack your eggs
Whisk your eggs and cream together
Layer zucchini, corn, bacon and cheese into baking dish
Pour in egg mix
Bake in oven
I like to keep some of my quick and easy dinners basic and this is a classic easy peasy zucchini slice.

How do I make the Best Zucchini Slice Recipe Ever?

The bacon on top is hard and chewy. The bread is doughy and soft and has a mound of cheese on it. They are seriously not an every day food! So we take inspiration from them and we use that inspiration to make a healthy zucchini slice recipe.

Making the best zucchini slice ever involves a trick
I know some folks would think that in this recipe I am going to tell you to mix the zucchini, corn and bacon in a bowl and then pile it all into our baking dish. But you need to hold that thought my friend, as I am not!

There are 2 reasons for that and the 1st is because sometimes, most of the time, ok all of the time, I am not that into cleaning up. So I am not going to tell you to mix stuff together in a bowl, as if you are like me, I think you probably get a bit over it too at times. No sir, no mixing bowl my friends, we don’t use one.

So, my friends to make the best ever zucchini slice with chewy bacon, we don’t use a mixing bowl and we put our bacon on top so that you will stand at the bench like I did and eat the little crispy bacon bits that fall off as you slice and dice.
