Summer squashing

zucchini

I picked up a bunch of zucchini at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday and decided to try something new.

If you haven’t tried oven “fried” zucchini, you don’t know what you’re missing.  This would work for yellow squash as well, and today I’m trying it with green tomatoes.

Oven Fried Zucchini

Slice zucchini (I did one) in thin slices – the thinner the better.  Place them on paper towels for about 10 minutes to let the moisture sweat.  Dip each slice in one beaten egg.  Then dredge in the following mixture:

1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used Panko)

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp pepper

salt to taste

Bake the zucchini for five minutes at 450 degrees.  Flip over and bake seven more minutes.  Delicious!

  1. Thanks for the recipe. I am going to try it. Maben is planning to start a farmers Market every 1st Friday, at the Old williams Big Star lot, next to the post office and the 1st one will be on July 1st. I went to West Point, today for a visitation of a freind and stopped by Pheba, with 2 of the ladies starting the farmers market in Maben and took information to several people who have large gardens and I wish a lot of people could have seen the large cabbage heads in one of the gardens.

  2. I haven’t tried them Olivia. Are you talking about the ones prepared like Bird’s Eye – or have you found a baggie made just for steaming?
