Imagine a dish so easy that even beginners can nail it. Grate some green zucchinis, chop up onions, toss in self-rising flour, cheddar cheese, and fresh parsley. Whisk eggs, vegetable oil, salt, pepper, and baking powder – all basic ingredients you probably have.

Stick it in the oven for 40 minutes, and voilà – a golden-brown beauty that’s ready to be the star of your meal. It’s not just tasty; it’s flexible. Have it warm as a main dish or chill it for brunch. And the best part? It won’t break the bank, estimated at $10-$15.

Worried about your cooking skills? Relax. With only 15 minutes of prep time and straightforward instructions, this recipe is a breeze. Feel free to throw in bell peppers or cherry tomatoes for some extra flavor and color.
