Oven-Baked Crispy Zucchini Rounds

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

You can use regular dry breadcrumbs in place of the panko! This is a great recipe to use up all your garden zucchini, these are very habit-forming lol! I like to sprinkle some finely grated cheddar or mozzarella cheese over the slices as soon as they come out of the oven YUMMMMM!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 450 degrees (yes 450 degrees, or even a little higher if possible, this will create a crispy crust!).
  2. In a bowl mix together the panko bread crumbs with seasoned salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cayenne (if using) and Parmesan cheese.
  3. Place the egg whites into a shallow bowl.
  4. Dip the zucchini slices into the egg whites (letting any excess egg whites drip off).
  5. Coat the slices in the panko mixture (use fingers to firmly adhear the mixture to the slices if necessary).
  6. Place on a greased baking sheet.
  7. Bake for about 5-6 minutes; turn over and continue to bake for another 6-9 minutes, or until browned and crispy.
  8. As soon as the slices come out of the oven sprinkle with finely grated cheddar cheese if desired.
  9. Delicious!

I was disappointed in these zuchinni rounds. I used a whole egg rather than 2 whites and didn't sprinkle with cheddar cheese. I had some that were too salty and some that didn't have much flavor at all. Some were a little green on the inside too. Won't be trying these again.

these are so great we eat them several times a week. I prefer putting all the breading ingredients in the mini chopper and mix them throughly it helps get the spices blended perfectly.

DELICIOUS! Another great recipe by Kittencalskitchen. I followed the recipe only using the whole egg. and I didn't top with cheese but I think I will try it next time. They didn't last long at all. Thank you for a great recipe. Made for Zaar Cookbook tag game 2011.
