Zucchini and Bacon Slice (Gluten Free & Paleo)

This zucchini and bacon slice makes an easy low carb snack, breakfast, lunch or light dinner. Gluten free, dairy free, Keto, Paleo and Whole30 friendly this zucchini slice is a tasty and filling savoury slice that everyone can enjoy.

This zucchini slice is kid friendly and can easily be made ahead for a grab and go breakfast or to pop into lunchboxes. I am always on the lookout for recipes where I can add some veggies in (and hopefully no one will notice), this recipe is definitely one of those!

My little boy loves this savoury slice (like many kids he is a big fan of anything with bacon) so this recipe is a great way to sneak some more veggies in to him. It is super easy to make ahead and can be enjoyed as a light dinner on busy weeknights.

Close up of zucchini and bacon slice

I have kept this zucchini and bacon slice dairy free, the bacon gives this slice a good dose of salty savoury flavour. I have also added in some nutritional yeast which also gives it a slight “cheesy” flavour.

Have you tried nutritional yeast before?

Nutritional yeast is an excellent ingredient to use if you can’t tolerate dairy but still would like your baked goods to have a bit of a cheesy hit.

As the name suggests nutritious yeast is ……nutritious! It is a good source of b vitamins, selenium and zinc, so adding some to baking or savoury dishes is a great way to boost the nutritional content of your food.

Additional Recipe Notes for making Zucchini and Bacon Slice

  • This is such a versatile recipe, you can add in whatever herbs you have in the garden, add in some more greens such as chopped spinach if you prefer, tomatoes or grate some cheese on top. I have added chopped parsley and pumpkin seeds for a bit of added flavour and texture, sunflower seeds could also work or a sprinkle of microgreens would add a nice freshness to this dish.
  • If you are following a strict Whole30 diet at the moment then you will need to look for a bacon that hasn’t been sweetened with sugar or honey and doesn’t have preservatives that are not Whole30 approved. If you live in New Zealand you can often find some Whole30 or Paleo friendly bacon at your local butcher.
  • This zucchini slice can easily be re heated in the microwave or in the oven. I don’t have a microwave so I will always reheat in the oven, to do this place the zucchini slice in an oven proof dish with tinfoil and bake at 180°C/350°F for around 15 – 20 minutes until piping hot.
  • This zucchini and bacon slice can be sliced as big or small as you prefer, it goes really well with a fresh green salad for lunch or with salad and/or steamed vegetables for a light dinner.
  • You can easily freeze this zucchini slice. Slice and wrap and store in an airtight container or ziplock bag for up to 2 months.
