Kelli's Fried Green Zucchini Recipe
Fresh zucchini are sliced and coated with seasoned crumbs, then fried in olive oil, topped with melted mozzarella cheese, and served with spaghetti sauce.
I love these! I made them several times. The original recipe was also 5 stars but I did a couple of things different the last few times. First, I didn't mix the parmesan cheese in with the bread crumbs but sprinkled a little on top after frying. Also I breaded a whole bunch at one time and put them on cookie sheets and stacked them up and froze them for a couple of hours and then put them in freezer bags for later use rather than breading them every time I want some. I also use ranch dressing instead of spaghetti sauce and Mozzerella cheese. They taste just like fried zucchini that I used to get at Coco's restaurant in Tucson. Wonderful side dish. UPDATE: I now use only panko bread crumbs. I also add onion powder and some dried parsley to the bread crumbs. I tried to dip them in flour prior to putting them in the egg as some have suggested, but then I had trouble getting the egg to stick to the zucchini. The egg sticks to the zucchini just fine without the flour.
This was just ok for me. I think some more spices would help. Also, I think I would make the slices a little thinner, otherwise they are still pretty hard after frying.
I'm allergic to tomatoes so as long as I left those out, I could happily eat these. Thank you so much. Super good
You don't need a lot of oil to fry these zucchini slices. Buttery cracker crumbs make a yummy, crunchy crust.
