Ready In:




  • Heat oil in frying pan over medium heat.
  • Place 3 shallow dishes out. In the first one, stir cornmeal and crushed bouillon together. In next dish, mix egg and milk. In the last dish, mix breadcrumbs and black pepper together.
  • Place a few zucchini disks in the corneal and shake to coat. Add zucchini to egg mixture and flip over to coat. Lastly, place zucchini in breadcrumb mixture and shake to coat. NOTE - It’s best to use a fork to lift the rounds out of the cornmeal and breadcrumbs so your fingers don’t get coated or remove the coating from the zucchini.
  • Add zucchini to hot oil and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove rounds and place on paper towels on a dish.
  • While you are waiting for zucchini to fry, mix together dip and set aside in a small dish.

    I tried your recipe and it is great! I had to make the following changes in the prep though because I did not have a bouillon cube but Sysco chicken base which has a wet base. I added to the egg and milk 1 even tsp. of the base. If I had added to the cormeal it would not have stayed on the vegie. I also used miracle whip instead of mayo. The dip had a little zing and it was delicious. I would make this again. I would have given a higher rating had I had the exact ingredients.

    The zucchini was great but we didn't care for the sauce. I really liked how easy this was to make. I'll definitely use this coating for frying zucchinni in the future. Good luck in the contest.

    Made for Dining on a Dollar 2011. Quite enjoyable as I love fresh zucchini from the garden. The ease of making and the tang of the dip is what had me. It was marvelous and I can see using this dip for veggies, chips, and just about anything you want to dip. As for the zuke recipe I dod not tate the boullion at all nut I do like the crusty cover the recipe makes. Very similar to one my YiaYia made as I grew up and now make myself. I will use this recipe often especially the dipping sauce. YUMMY Thank you chef.

    I made this delicious zucchini rounds and used olive oil for frying. The crushed chicken bouillon cube added in the coating gave it a very good flavor. We also liked the dip served with the rounds. Thanks for the recipe and good luck, Chef.


I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
