Fried Zucchini Coins

My mother in law has had an abundance of zucchini in her garden this year. Before this year I had never actually tried a zucchini. In keeping with my goal of introducing new foods into my cooking this year, I took a few home and had some fun with them. I made these as a side to serve with dinner when my mother and my brothers came over for dinner back in August to celebrate August birthdays.

These were simple to make and were really delicious. Next time I make these I want to try using panko breadcumbs for a little extra crunch.

Fried Zucchini Coins
By Nat

1 medium to large zucchini
2 eggs
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup of dried breadcrums (fresh won't stick)
1/4 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese

Cut zucchini into slices and set aside.

In one mixing bowl mix 1 cup of breadcumbs (dried and not fresh is best for this recipe)and the parmesan cheese. Set aside.

In a second mixing bowl combine eggs, salt and pepper.

Begin by dipping zucchini into egg mixture and then take it and dip it into the bread crumb mixture.

Fry breaded zucchini in a skillet dotted with butter until golden.

Serve warm- ENJOY!
