Bacon and Veg Slice

by Collette White | 9 November, 2018

Good Morning friends, Happy Friday! I hope this finds you all well. This recipe is a little different to what I normally post on here as it has bacon (please try and buy additive free if you can!) and cheese (dairy) in it. However, it's too good to not share with you. The other day I was at my local grocer and spotted super finely diced bacon and for some reason I thought of a 'Pizza Slice' my Mum use to make when I was growing up. I use to ask for it ALL the time, a food memory that makes me smile. The funny thing is, I don't actually know how it resembled 'Pizza' besides the fact it had bacon and cheese in it! It also had a bizarre ingredient, Jatz biscuits! So I decided to make my own version, without the Jatz, and I resisted to call it 'Pizza Slice' as much as I wanted to, I figured no one else would get it! I hope you love this as much as my family does .... their oooh's and aaah's and reactions said it all, it's going to be a regular here! 

Ingredients

150-200g bacon – finely diced

6 eggs

1 x 420g tin corn – drained

1 small bunch broccoli (120g) – shredded

1 large carrot – grated

300g block cheese – grated

¼ bunch flat leaf parsley – finely shredded

good pinch salt and pepper

1 tspn paprika (approx.)

Method

In a fry pan place the bacon and cook over a medium heat until golden. Allow to cool to room temperature.

Preheat oven to 180c and line a 20cm x 20cm deep (5-6cm) baking dish with baking paper and set aside.

In a large bowl place all the ingredients (except the paprika) and mix thoroughly.

Pour into prepared baking dish and even out the top with a spatula or the back on a spoon.

Sprinkle with paprika and bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly before cutting and enjoying OR allow to cool to room temperature, cover and refrigerate and enjoy cold for any meal.

Notes

Cooking time may vary depending on your oven. My Belling Richmond oven took 40 minutes, however, I do find it is on the hotter side. Increase cooking time by 5 minutes at a time if needed. 

Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
Take Care of You,
