Fried Zucchini Chips are a wonderful way to enjoy fresh zucchini. Fried Zucchini makes a delicious appetizer or even a side dish.
Fried Zucchini Chips are a great way to enjoy fresh zucchini, growing up this was always on our table during the summer. I grew up in Pueblo, Colorado, and we had a large garden. For a few weeks out of the summer we were enjoying treats like Zucchini bread, Zucchini cake, and well these Zucchini chips.
My Mom made these very simple, these are made with saltine cracker crumbs, eggs, and zucchini, and plenty of salt. To make wonderful summer vegetable, you simply need to wash them, and slice them about 1/4 inch thick and then you make a simple egg wash and coat the zucchini with cracker crumbs. This side dish takes no time at all to make, and you could make some modifications to this recipe to make it your own.
The variations you could try would be to switch out the cracker crumbs for bread crumbs, you could add a tablespoon or two of Parmesan cheese. You may want to use panko bread crumbs as well. Any of these changes would be easy to do.
I hope you give this recipe for these zucchini chips a try soon. You don’t have to make these in summer only, you can always get fresh zucchini at the store.
