oil for frying
ground black pepper
Italian-style dry bread crumbs
This is a tasty treat. I don't deep fry it though, I just cover the bottom of a skillet with oil and turn the zucchini over after the first side is browned. Mix some grated parmesan in with the crumbs for extra flavor. You can also make round slices instead of strips.
I was terribly disappointed in these zucchini sticks. I made them exactly as the recipe indicated and they simply tasted like fried bread crumbs.I'd printed the recipe out months ago so I didn't have the numerous changes from the reviews to factor in, but I was certain they'd be tasty after reading the description on the recipe itself. The first problem I ran into was the recipe calls for heavy cream...but nowhere in the instructions does it say to WHIP it. Instead the instructions begin by saying to mix the whipped cream with the eggs. THERE'S A CRUCIAL STEP LEFT OUT IN THIS RECIPE. Additionally, these are extremely bland. Some spices desperately need to be added to the crumb mixture. After reading the reviews today, I see that there are a number of things others have done to produce a more tasty zucchini stick. But after doing that...I feel that I now have a different recipe and not this one. I L-O-V-E fried zucchini, but was sorely disappointed in these and will not be making them again.
An easy recipe for one of the greatest snacks/appetizers ever. My family has made these for years. Two suggestions: 1.) Before dipping zucchini in egg mixture, coat lightly with flour. The egg sticks better. And 2.) To taste the authentic Italian side dish, add a little garlic powder to your batter and after frying, sprinkle with grated Parmesan or Romano cheese. Oh, man -- perfection...
Oooooh sooooo good! Just like you get in restaurants! DEFINENTLY coat zucchini slices with flour before dipping into egg mixture so it sticks and DEFINENTLY sprinkle with salt and pepper and parmesan after frying. Delicious - we even forgot to use any dip, just ate them up as soon as they were cool enough!
My first time making these, and they are excellent!!! The table cream makes all the difference, but I love garlic, so I added garlic and onion powder, and a couple of sprinkles of italian seasoning. Once finished cooking, I added some grated parmesan cheese all over the top with a little more salt and pepper, and PERFECTION!! I will definitely make this recipe again!! Thanx LaDonna! :)
These are the best I have ever tasted!!!! The look like resturant style. I served them with a seafood sauce. Wonderful, you have to try them!!
I marinated my zucchini sticks in italian dressing overnight first and used plain bread crumbs instead. They tasted fabulous, but I had trouble getting the breading to stick once I fried them. Nothing I tried seemed to work. Great dipped in ranch dressing.
A great way to get rid of extra zucchini! I agree with others who said to dip in flour before the egg mixture. It sticks better that way.
