Baked Zucchini

22 03 2011

I have always loved deep fried zucchini.  I love to order it at restaurants or get it at the fair. Dipped in Ranch or mustard it is amazing.  I have never made it at home mainly because I know it is not the best thing in the world for you being that it is deep fried.  When I stumbled upon this recipe that baked the zucchini instead of deep frying I was in heaven. It isn’t quite the same as the deep fried version but it is still amazing and is a great option for cooking zucchini.


Baked Zucchini

~ 1-2 large zucchini, cut into circles

~ 2 eggs

~ 2 Tbsp. milk

~ 1 cup Italian-style bread crumbs or croutons blended up finely in a blender

~ 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

~ salt and pepper to taste

~ cooking spray

1. Preheat oven to 425o F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray evenly with cooking spray.

2. Combine eggs and milk in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and salt & pepper. Dip each zucchini piece into the egg mixture, then dip into bread crumbs until evenly coated in crumbs. Place zucchini on baking sheet.

3. Bake at 425o F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. For an added crisp, turn on the oven to broil and cook for about 30-45 seconds longer, be careful not to burn. Remove from the oven and serve hot with ranch dressing or marinara.
