1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
6 eggs, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit). Grease and line a 9×13-inch baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine the zucchini, onion, bacon, cheese, flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Stir in the eggs until just combined.

If you want to make a vegetarian zucchini slice, simply omit the bacon.
You can add other vegetables to the zucchini slice, such as carrots, capsicum, or mushrooms.
Serve the zucchini slice with a side salad or some crusty bread.
