A super simple slice that is great for breakfast, as a snack, lunch or dinner. Change it up to suit your needs - we often swap out some zucchini for other veggies (kale, spinach, carrot etc) or leave the ham out for a vegetarian option. It's a great slice to use up any left overs in the fridge too. Enjoy!
