This tasty bacon and zucchini slice is super easy to make and not too bad on the health front either! While this recipe doesn’t call for any extra ingredients, feel free to add in grated carrots or even eggplant to mix up the flavour. Not to mention it only takes 15 minutes prep time before it can be left to cook in the oven. The best part about this slice is you can enjoy it fresh or you can pop it in an airtight container and freeze it for up to two months to enjoy later.
