zucchini, cut into 1/2 inch slices
salt and pepper to taste
I havent tried this recipe..but thought that I would like to share how I fry zucchini. While growing up, one of my best friend was italian. Her mother cooked zucchini alot for part of the meal. She would slice the zucchini approx 1/4 inch thick, dip in beaten egg, then drop into seasoned flour. Which was just salt & pepper added to the flour. She would then fry them in a pan with oil, until golden brown. Then remove to a paper towel to drain. I have always fried my zucchini the same way, and it is awesome. I use canola oil for frying as we also watch our fats. Even my kids love friend zucchini this way.
This recipe is confusing. The title says "Butter Fried Zucchini" and the description says "cooked in butter not oil". But then it calls for 3/4 cup *margarine*. I don't use margarine, my choice is butter instead of hydrogenated fat, but butter scorched if you got it hot enough to make the coating crispy and at lower temperatures it just soaks up fat and stays soggy. Oil would have definitely been a much better choice. Maybe if you use margarine this will turn out, but I can't see the benefit, I'll go back to using seasoned bread crumbs and olive oil for my fried zucchini.
I am always looking for new ways to prepare vegetables, and this one seemed pretty easy. However, the flour gives the zucchini a bland taste. However, I am going to try it again with thinner slices of zucchini and some sort of herbed breadcrumbs instead of flour.
Oh my gosh, are there ever good! Mom mom used to make this kinda thing when I was little, and I'd totally forgotten abuot them untill I saw this recipe. Added a little garlic powder, but other then that followed the recipe. Good stuff! :)
It wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best. You could taste both the egg and the flour fairly well. I didn't add any seasonings. I would recommend add seasonings if you are going to try this out.
This is a recipe I have made for a long time and it's a good way to sneak in the vegetables. I use Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs instead of flour and the zucchini slices come out really crispy. I also use 1/2 butter and 1/2 oil for frying. I don't think it's AS good with flour. If you want to use flour, I would suggest seasoning it with a little salt and pepper, garlic powder and paprika. Enjoy!
The zucchini is a little bland until you add some seasoning. Garlic salt with parsley is pretty good.
This was easy and less messy than most Fried Zucchini Recipes on this site..
