I had quite a few zucchini’s that I needed to use up recently so I made the kids some Cheesy Zucchini & Ham bread for their lunch boxes. I was pleasantly surprised that they loved it and asked for it again the next day. The lunchbox below can be found here.
This is a great way to use up excess vegetables you have in the fridge, I used zucchini, corn, ham, herbs, spring onion, you could also add in capsicum.
