I made these last night and used zucchini to accompany fresh grilled tuna and corn on the cob. I first dipped the zucchini in seasoned flour then into the egg and then the potato/cheese/butter/garlic salt mixture. They baked up to a lovely crispy golden brown. I'm going to make this again and try adding some spices to it.. maybe cayenne pepper and chili powder. The recipe was easy to make up ahead of time, too. I just lined a baking sheet with aluminum foil and gave it a light spray with oil. It made for easy clean up.

Loved this recipe. It was so easy to prepare. I used zucchini, next time I will try sweet potatoes and squash. I'll use my imagination. Husband loved it, and it's a keeper. Shortened baking time to around 20 min., because my batch were starting to golden brown.
