I’m always looking for new ideas for simple make-ahead breakfasts and easy lunches and this Zucchini Slice is one of our favourites! It’s a cross between a quiche and a pie, it’s perfect for busy days and slow weekend brunches, and it’s a great way to use up all that garden fresh zucchini that’s so plentiful this time of year!
What I love most about this recipe is that it’s perfect for meal prep. It stores beautifully in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days, and it’s easy to reheat at school or work for a breakfast or lunch in a pinch. And it’s a great and tasty way to sneak in extra veggies – we enjoy it with a delicious salad on the side for a nice light & healthy meal!
