I just read the first review from VA who only gave 4 stars because it was "a little bland". The first ingredient listed says "seasoned breadcrumbs". You used panko crumbs. While they give a much crispier crust, THEY are bland. Not the recipe. They need more than the pepper which you added. If you followed the recipe as written, you might have given 5 stars.

WOW! These were incredible! I used 2 egg whites instead of a whole egg to lower the fat & calories. I used Italian bread crumbs like Bergy & added garlic powder & fresh ground pepper like Wax Lion. We like things spicy in Texas, so I also added crushed red pepper to give it a kick and I had some fresh rosemary from the garden that I crumbled into the breading. Instead of "grated" parmesan I used a combination of shredded parmesan, asiago & romano (you can get a container in the cheese or deli section at the grocery store). Since it was shredded it didn't stick as well, but I pressed it on & the cheese got nice and crispy. Thanks for a great recipe KC!!!

Yum! I sprinkled the sliced zucchini with coarse salt to help draw out some of the moisture (let it sit for 2 hours on counter and patted dry with paper towel.) Then I coated the zucchini and placed them on a cooling rack and then put in the fridge for 20 minutes (to help the coating 'set.') Baked as per directions and sprinkled with a little salt and grated Asiago cheese. Served with Hidden Valley Ranch dip with some dill seasoning added. Will be making again and have forwarded this recipe to friends!
