    Serves: 4 

    • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
    • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
    • 2 eggs
    • 5 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 zucchini, cut into 5mm slices
    • 120g grated mozzarella cheese
    • 1 cup tomato spaghetti sauce, heated

    Preparation:17min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Mix together the bread crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese and garlic salt in a shallow bowl. Beat the eggs in a second shallow bowl.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan over medium heat until the oil is rippling but not smoking.
    3. Dip the zucchini slices into the beaten egg then into the crumbs, and place in the frypan in a single layer. Fry the zucchini slices until golden brown, about 3 minutes, then flip them over and fry until the slices are cooked through and golden brown on the other side.
    4. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the slices and cook the slices 1 to 2 more minutes to allow the cheese to melt.
    5. To serve, spoon hot spaghetti sauce onto plates and top with fried zucchini slices and melted cheese.

    I baked them for around 20 minutes at 375, turning them over halfway through the baking time, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. Served over pasta with the sauce and mozzarella for an easy and quick meal!  -  02 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I put my zucchini slices in a bag with flour first so the egg would stick better. This was a tasty side dish.  -  20 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was easy and just what I was in the mood for! I had one medium-size zuke so I cut the crumb mixture in half--1/4 c. each of bread crumbs and parm and 1/2 tsp. garlic salt. It still ended up being more than enough. I also used 1/4 c. olive oil for frying and it was perfect. I didn't serve them with sauce, but ate as a snack with the melted cheese and it was delicious!  -  15 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
