Zucchini and Onion Bars

Zucchini and Onion Bars

These Zucchini and Onion Bars are just amazing !  What I love most, is of course - it is basically a mix, bake and serve recipe and tastes just as great slightly warm as it does cold.

Perfect to take on a picnic or serve one or two bars together with a sunny-side-up Egg for brunch. Add some breakfast sausages and/or bacon and you are on your way to a feast of a brunch out on the patio.

We were feeling a little peckish the other day between meals, and I had half a bag of baby Zucchini leftover from a previous meal, just enough to make these little gems which are packed with flavor.

I do not cook with Zucchini very often, but I often use them raw in salads. I am of course talking about baby Zucchini, which we also know as Baby Marrows in South Africa.  Whenever I see these big Zucchinis on the internet I am always curious to know whether they taste the same, seeing as I have never seen any big ones in our stores (could very well be because I hardly ever leave the house,,, kind of like living under a rock!} However, I do not think so, I think SA is more into the smaller variant as we mostly use them in either a salad or in a stir-fry.

If you serve these Zucchini and Onion bars warm, no spread is needed, but it does dry out a tiny bit when cold and a bit of butter does make a difference, although I still prefer to enjoy them as is, no butter, no extra cheese or anything. My husband and son on the other hand would slap butter on anything they can lay their hands on.

I also served these bars, instead of dinner rolls, one evening and my family was absolutely delighted to have something different than a dinner roll with their meal.
