I really like zucchini which you may be able to tell since this is the second recipe that I have posted in the past month, first being Zucchini and Corn. This recipe makes zucchini very crispy, sharp and juicy at the same time. The fact that they are baked not fried makes them a staple at my house being served instead of chips. I serve them with ranch dressing but they could just as easily be served on their own. This recipe is adapted from Elie Krieger.
You will need: 2 zucchinis, 1/4 cup bread crumbs, 1/4 cup parmesian/romano mixture, 1 tbs olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 450 deg.
Slice zucchini into 1/4 inch thick pieces
toss with olive oil
Mix cheeses, bread crumbs salt and pepper together.
Coat zucchini rounds with bread mixture, coating both sides.
Spread on a greesed baking sheet (I sprayed it with Pam) and bake until brown for about 30 min.
Serve immediatel or in my case eat the first batch all by yourself and share the second one only when your family realizes that they are being made. What they do not know will not kill them.
