I've made a variation of this for ages and it's always popular. Like Luke's mum I use tasty cheese but I'm going to try the pecorino and parmesan. I have also sometimes substituted grated carrot for half the zucchini.

This slice went down very nicely

Very tasty. I used double parmesan and no pecorino and it was delightful.

Tastes Great- reminds me of my mum's without the bacon. I added asparagus really nice. I love the simplicity of this type of cooking

We add corn and carrot for extra taste. We also make it in
Muffin tins for school lunches.

Just like Nan used to make, she added baby spinach to hers. She used to have the most bizarre names for dishes, this one used to be "Green worm pancake"!

Really yummy, just like my aunty makes who is taking her recipe to the grave :-) Can see lots of things that could be added to make it yummy in a different way eg mushrooms, peas etc Thanks Luke!

The video method is different to the method printed for this recipe. Very disappointing. Which method do I choose. Might just forget this one.
