- coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450 degrees for 15
- minute Turn zucchini over; bake an additional 10-15
- minute or until outside is crispy and browned. ***Baking time might be a bit long check after 8-10 minutes on first side, second side may only need about 5 more minutes.
I cut the cook time down to 8 minutes on the first side, and 5 on the flip side. They turned out slightly burned even after cutting the cook time. However, I tasted some when I took them out of the oven to flip, and they tasted delicious. Maybe the cook time should be 5 minutes on each side, or maybe the cooking time should be reduced. The end result was very crisp, which I think is the desired effect. I think they'd still turn out crisp with the greatly decreased cook time, while still retaining the flavor. Thanks for sharing!
