This has been one of those weeks. You know those weeks. You running all day long and when you finally get home, you sort of wonder if any clear thought passed across your mind. I’m fried. What better reason to fry up some zucchini tonight?
I had one zucchini left in the fridge and once I discovered that my fresh green beans could no longer be described as fresh, I decided I needed to use the zucchini. I thought zucchini fries with panko bread crumbs sounded good. I didn’t even look up a recipe….just made this up based on past frying experience. Turns out these were good! Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Go me!
Step 1. Cut the zucchini in eighths, then cut the strips in half.
Step 2. Put 4 tbsps of flour in a gallon sized storage bag and added the zucchini strips.
Step 3. Shaky, shaky!
Step 4. Bathe each one in a mixture of 1 egg and 2 tbsps milk
Step 5. The fun part……rolling each one in panko bread crumbs. GOOEY!
Step 6. Fry! (Canola oil about 1/4″ deep, med high heat, 2-3 mins on each side)
Step 7. Drain on plate with paper towels.
Step 8. Lightly salt and serve!
