Original recipe yields 3 cups



  1. In a heavy saucepan or deep fryer, preheat oil to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a blender, mix the eggs, whipped cream, pepper and salt. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl.
  3. Slice the zucchini into pieces 2 to 3 inches long. Dip the pieces into the egg mixture, then coat them with the bread crumbs.
  4. Carefully place the battered pieces in the oil and fry 3 to 4 minutes, until brown and crispy. Drain fried pieces on a paper towel. Repeat until all the slices have been fried.

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.



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.



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...
