"Turn your fresh zucchini into a great appetizer using breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Excellent served hot, but is equally delicious prepared ahead of time and served at room temperature."

I thought this was a great recipe as is. I have never fried Zucchini before. I did double the recipe because the zucchini I had was huge. Will make again

This was VERY yummy. I used crushed butter cracher crumbs because I didnt have bread crumbs at the time. Big hit, even my 3 yr old twins gobbled them down :) We also used diffrent kinds of squash not just zucchini...was awonderful, going to use this one again!

Extremely Taste-y! I substituted 2 tablespoons of olive oil instead of the vegetable oil. And I used Fat Free Parm Cheese instead for health reasons.
