Zucchini cheese bread

A simple loaf which will not only help you get in your greens, it is full of protein from the eggs so will keep you fuller for longer. I like to serve it with a bit of cream cheese, smoked salmon and a slice of tomato for an easy and delicious lunch.


  • 375g zucchini, coarsely grated
  • 3 rashers bacon, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 5 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • sliced tomato, to serve
  • sliced smoked salmon or ham, to serve
  • Cream cheese, to serve


Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Lightly grease a 14 x 21cm loaf pan. Line base and two long sides with baking paper.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and season to taste. Spoon into prepared pan and top with tomato slices. Bake 40 minutes, until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Stand in pan 5 minutes and turn out onto a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm or cooled with smoked salmon or ham.
