These Thermomix Ham and Zucchini Pikelets make a great meal or lunchbox snack for the kids!
My kids LOVE pikelets, but when they've got a thick layer of jam or honey slathered on top, they really aren't the healthiest snack option. I came up with these Thermomix Ham and Zucchini Pikelets recipe as a way to smuggle some extra goodness into the kids in a form that they will eat!
You can adapt this recipe to suit the tastes of your family, we also a ham, cheese and corn version as well as zucchini, carrot and corn. These Thermomix Ham and Zucchini Pikelets are freezer friendly, simply store them in a freezer safe container for up to two months. They are perfect for lunch boxes as well and I will just pop a couple of frozen pikelets into our little guys lunchbox and they are ready to eat by morning tea time.
