Using leftovers is always a pain to me. But these days I’m trying to make use of them after reading a lot of recipes from other food bloggers. Also, after using the left over teriyaki salmon to make Teriyaki Salmon Prawn Patties, I was more determined to try to make good use of leftovers.
This Zucchini Slice is another of such adventure. I had a piece of cheddar cheese left over from making a finger food recently. Then I had a tin of SPAM, the only canned food you can find in my house. I usually use it for making fried rice. I also have a few zucchinis and half a red pepper. I wanted to make fritters but then thought that pan frying is just hard work and greasy all over. I fried 3 pieces though and they were really delicious but too crumbly without flour. Finally I added flour and pour into a tin to bake. It came out very delicious.
This recipe is again very easy…just mix everything and bake. It’s also one where you can hide vegetables in it. The cheddar cheese and the SPAM gave beautiful flavour and taste to this slice. Here’s my recipe to share.
2 medium zucchini (washed and grated)
1/2 red pepper (finely chopped)
1 big onion (finely chopped)
6 eggs (lightly beaten)
2C grated cheddar cheese
1C self-raising flour
1/2 tin SPAM (diced)
salt and pepper to taste
Put everything except the flour into a mixing bowl. You don’t need a lot of salt and pepper as the cheese and SPAM are already quite salty.
Mix it well. Then add the flour and mix until there are no lumps. Pour into a paper-lined baking tin and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 40 minutes. Test for doneness. It’s cooked when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Let it cool down for a while before cutting onto slices to serve. It’s very delicious on its own or with any other dishes. My children didn’t know that I added so much vegetable until I told them. You can imagine their look…haha. They didn’t even know that I added zucchini. See, all mothers need to be smart!
