Mish Delish Good Food Blog

I’m a professional food stylist and currently prepping my own series of cookbooks and a cooking show. In my food catering business, Mishka La Mushka, I catered private and corporate functions and events big and small, designed food in hat boxes for the Spring Racing Carnival and created too many themed kids birthday parties to mention. But now I love food styling and sharing my fun food ideas with mums wanting to create restaurant-quality meals at home, for kids and family. So let’s get cooking!

This is a family favourite and particularly lovely in spring when zucchini is in abundant supply. If you have leftovers, it’s great for school lunches and freezes well too.

You'll Need

  • 500g zucchini, grated
  • 1 cup good quality parmesan, grated
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 150g bacon, finely chopped
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 3 eggs
  • sea salt & pepper


Pre-heat oven to 180C and grease and line a rectangle baking dish (25cm x 15cm) with baking paper.

Drain the grated zucchini in a sieve, sprinkle with salt and press with the back of a wooden spoon to squeeze out the excess moisture.

Saute the bacon on a medium heat until golden and set aside on a paper towel. Mix the zucchini and cheese together in a large bowl and add the bacon and onion. Stir well to combine.

Lightly whisk together the eggs and add them to the zucchini mixture, followed by the flour. Mix well and season with salt and pepper.

Pour the mixture into a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes or until set.



  1. This was a hit when I made it last week…I added a few extras; some thinly sliced roasted red pepper, a sprinkle of sweet paprika, and as per your suggestion, some sliced tomato on top.
    I'm baking it again today while the oven is on for your peanut butter, white choc & sea salt cookies…
