Courgette or Zucchini?

Thanks to Tim from Latrobe who provided the zucchini in this week's hilbarn box. You can see it growing here in Tim's great shot of the unmistakable countryside of Tassie's Central Coast. "What's your favourite way of eating your zucchini," we asked him. "I'll send you a recipe," he said. And by the time we got home and unpacked, the recipe had arrived. Here it is, happy to share it with you, especially as we tried it out last night after packing this week's hilbarn boxes. Try it - it works!



2 large or 3 med zucchini, grated coarsely

1 large onion, chopped

2 rashers bacon or some ham, chopped finely

1 cup grated cheese

1 cup self raising flour

Half cup olive oil

5 – 6 eggs

Salt & Pepper


Combine zucchini, onion, bacon, cheese, flour, oil and lightly beaten eggs. Season.

Pour into greased 20cm x 20cm tin

Bake at 350F for 30 – 40 minutes

Nice hot or cold
