I make this recipe alot but it is much better with some chopped bacon and some garlic. I also eliminate the oil - it is still great without it and you dont have so much fat. Read More

Ugh can I give this a zero or a negative 5? This was absolutely disgusting worst dish I have ever made ever! I can't even give comments to improve upon it. The taste was terrible I could not even finish was serving. Extremely acidic bitter and gross. Read More

This recipe is similar to one that my Nan used to make. Now that we have "rediscovered" the recipe it has been passed around the family and everyone loves it. The only difference to our original recipe - we think! - is that we add bacon to ours for a little added flavour. Read More

I have made this a few times and i think its great for a side dish at a BBQ. I usually add a few extra things like garlic and greated carrot. I also add some extrea chhese on the top and it makes a nice little crust. this recipe is a keeper great in summer. Read More

As written I can see where this recipe might be a little bland but a little salt fresh ground pepper garlic powder and 8 slices of cooked & crumbled bacon made it very good. It tastes much like a quiche' but not as "eggy". This is a good basic recipe to use up all that summer zucchini and experiment with additional ingedients. I'll make it again adding different seasoning & ingredients. Fun to experiment. Read More

My Stepmother Janet who lived in Oz for many years gave me this recipe and like others she adds the chopped bacon it IS more tasty! However my daughter is now vegetarian and I have been adding chopped button mushrooms (her favorite veg) and it is delish! Read More

I tried this recipe on Sunday night for my husband who never eats Zucchinis...except I added 4 chopped bacon rashes 2 teaspoons of garlic salt freshly ground pepper and since I didn't have any swiss cheese I just used a cup of grated tasty cheese....it was just scrumptious...so delish...it will be a family favourite now...he couldn't get enough of it. I used an 8 inch pie dish to cook mine in and baked it in an 180 degrees C fan forced oven for 45 mins. He has even taken the left overs to work for lunch today....that is high praise indeed. Thanks so much...This is now a permanent in our family....yum yum..PS Forgot to add that I diced the onion finely rather than grated it... Read More

Very good recipe to start with. Only problem was the size pan - loaf - it took a while for the middle to cook and ended up in the over for a bit over an hour (and was still a little mushy). I would probably use a slice pan next time. I added one sweet potato grated in place of one zucchini and 2 cloves a of garlic as well as salt and pepper. Was a hit with adults and children. Thank you! Read More

In Australia we eat zucchini slice often and mum always added some cooked bacon. I also use slightly less oil and salt and pepper are a must to add flavour. I usually also add in some corn and sometimes a grated carrot depending what I am trying to use up and I use cheddar cheese as it is cheaper. This is a good basic recipe that can be adapted to suit different tastes. Read More

This was a great starter recipe for me I really liked the premise of it but made some significant changes well additions really. I added bacon as others suggested caramelized onions and garlic salt & pepper red pepper flakes. Also for cheese I used a few different kinds essentially using up a bunch of 'ends' I had in the fridge. It was a great way to use up extra zucchini and other leftovers in the fridge. Read More
