Fried Zucchini

My friend Helene mentioned that her Grandma made fried zucchini sandwiches. The zucchini was fresh from her garden. This sounded too good not to make. Fried zucchini did make a great sandwich in fresh bakery bread with marinara sauce. Helene says she always used ketchup.

Fried Zucchini

vegetable oil to come halfway up the side of your frying vessel, I use a cast iron dutch oven
zucchini or other summer squash, cut thin lengthwise
eggs, beaten
panko crumbs or whichever breading you prefer
season salt
Italian seasoning

Heat oil over high heat. Meanwhile set out your flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in individual pie plates.

Season to taste with the season salt, Italian seasoning and salt.

Dip the zucchini slices first in the flour and shake off the excess. Then into the egg and finally the breadcrumbs.

Carefully slide the slices into the hot oil (should be about 375°F which is about as hot as my little stove will get it). Cook, turning once until golden brown on both sides.

Remove to a draining rig.

My wife, Yvonne, ate (and enjoyed!) hers dipped in marinara sauce. I made a sandwich with mine.
