Baked “fried” zucchini bites

image
Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs always make anything taste better. These crunchy bites are full of flavor and goodness you won’t even believe they’re fried. I always have too many zucchini laying around in my fridge so this is a great way to use up my leftover ones!

Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients:
2 zucchini sliced into 1/4 inch slices
2 eggs; lightly beaten
3/4 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup parmesan grated cheese

Steps:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Slice washed zucchini into 1/4-inch thick rounds. In a medium bowl, toss the zucchini with whole wheat flour.

2. Beat 2 eggs in a bowl and dip each round into the egg mixture.

3. Combine the parmesan cheese and bread crumbs in a separate bowl. Dip each floured round into the mixture, coating it evenly on both sides, pressing the coating on to stick, and place in a single layer on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray or use a silpat pad.

4. Bake for 20-25 minutes until zuchhini is golden brown. Serve with your favorite dip!
