Zucchini Parmesan Crisps are crunchy and so addicting!
Whats the best way to eat vegetables? Well fried of course. These zucchini crisps are tender on the inside with a crispy crunchy outside. One of my favorite ways to use up the abundance of zucchini I have in my garden.
Panko and parmesan are the perfect coating for zucchini. Super light and airy texture, provides the perfect crunch.
Whip up a batch for a simple appetizer or snack. I guarantee they are highly addicting and kid approved!
I do recommend getting all the zucchini slices breaded and ready to go and put them on a baking sheet or platter.
I like to cut my zucchini into 1/4″ slices, so that the frying process goes really fast. Plus its a texture thing for me, I like equal amounts of breading to zucchini.
