Taste of Summer — Zucchini Recipe

With August steadily rolling by, I look at my vegetable garden, which is still going strong and thinking about recipes for my zucchini. It’s always nice to have a new way to serve this vegetable that is both appealing to the eye and taste buds.

I consider many things when placing a recipe here. I want something easy to make and I want it to taste good. It may combine other flavors which is a bonus that kids will enjoy, too. I do want family pleasing recipes.

For this delicious snack or side dish, you’ll need:

  • 4 zucchini
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 cup shredded Paramesan Cheese
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable cooking spray

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Cut zucchini into 3-inch sticks.
  3. Get out a small bowl and whisk egg whites, then add milk.
  4. In another bowl Combine Parmesan  Cheese and breadcrumbs in a separate bowl.
  5. Dip zucchini sticks into egg mixture, and then roll in breadcrumb mixture.
  6. Get out a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.
