zucchinis, cut into 1/2-inch slices
buttery round crackers (such as Ritz®), crushed
salt and ground black pepper to taste
So fast & easy to make. The crackers help give it a buttery taste. Will definitely make again! We substituted seasoning salt for the salt & pepper. Yum!
I'm giving these 3 stars because 2T of olive oil isn't going to fry your zucchini, especially when sliced half of an inch thick! I started with a little more than that and it still wasn't enough. I ended up using enough oil to half submerge the slices, and also ended up making the slices only half as thick. I don't keep buttery crackers in the pantry so I melted a generous amount of butter and mixed it with plain bread crumbs. If you do use the crackers though, I recommend giving them a good spin through the food processor to get the crumbs nice and small. My final outcome was quite tasty; served with warm marinara.
Great Dipped in Ranch. These really helped me use up some of my garden zucchi.
Breading does not stick, had to use a lot more than 2 tbs. of oil, they burned before the zuccini got soft.
It worked pretty well. Make sure the crackers are crushed fine so they stick better and it does need way more than 2 Tbs oil.
