I just made the most delicious snack ever. I’m calling them zucchini bites. I had recently bought quite a bit of squash at the market. It was on sale and screaming, “eat me”! Cut to me at home, scratching my head thinking, what am I going to do with 2 lbs of squash . . .
Luckily, I whipped up a tasty batch of this darling recipe. I love vegetables, but I imagine anyone who doesn’t, would even like these. They are magical! They are essentially zucchini fries. The outside is salty and crunchy. The inside is warm and melty. I don’t know how it happened, but I’m very happy it did. And they are so easy to make too! Only a couple of ingredients! Try these on your picky eaters and tell me if you got them to eat their veggies.
2 cups of zucchini, cut into 1 inch “cubes”
2/3 cup panko bread crumbs
1/3 cup of grated parmesan
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 425. Beat egg in a bowl. Mix the bread crumbs, parmesan, salt and pepper on a plate. Dredge zucchini in egg. Coat the zucchini in the bread crumb mixture. Place the zucchini on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Cook for approximately 25 mintues or until outside is brown and crispy.
