Notes

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Bacon and Zucchini Bake is not suitable for freezing.  Can be made up to a day in advance and stored in the fridge.
  • Bacon can be substituted with ham or left out altogether if you wish.  You may need to add seasoning to make up the saltiness required by the bacon.
