This was from a Granny's coupon. We had it last night and it is another zucchini hit!
- 1⁄3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 4 small zucchini, quartered lengthwise
- 1 egg, beaten (or egg substitute)
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- In a bowl, combine bread crumbs and cheese topping.
- Dip zucchini strips into egg, then into crumb mixture.
- Place on baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray.
- Bake at 450 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and tender.
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!
