I always use free range eggs and recommend you do too. They are fresher, tastier and better for the chickens. For the little extra cost, I think you get much better bang for your buck with free range 
For this recipe, I recommend using smaller zucchinis to avoid excess moisture in your slice. I used 5 small ones which made 4 cups grated zucchini. You are better off doing this than using 2 large ones 
The size of your baking dish WILL make a difference for this recipe. I used a 31.5 x 26 x 5.5 cm (capacity 2.2L) porcelain roaster. The actual type of dish won’t matter ie you could use a skillet, a baking tray, a slice tray. BUT, the recipe is designed so that you get a thickish piece of slice. If you use a bigger tray than the one I did, you will get a thinner slice. You can use a smaller one ( ie my skillet is 26cm, but when I use that I only do 6 eggs). I would recommend you use something similar to the measurements in either of these 2 dishes. Obviously don’t run out and buy anything just for one recipe or because you worry it needs to be that size. There is flexibility in the recipe for different uses of dishes, but what would not be a good idea is for you to use a 35 cm casserole dish for example. It will be too large and your slice will be as thin as an omelette. If using a much smaller baking tray or slice tray, you can use 6 eggs and if you do this, I recommend using 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 cup cream not the 3/4 that we use when we have the 8 eggs. 
Using the food processor to shred your zucchini is fast and your hands stay clean, but it adds to the washing up. You can use a hand held grater to avoid this and these days you can also buy pre shredded zucchini at most local grocers. 
Your slice edges will be much straighter if you let the slice cool before cutting it. Use a sharp knife and rinse with hot water in between cuts.
