Recipe // Fried Zucchini


A couple of days ago, while planning a meal out of all leftover ingredients we had in the fridge. I realized we still had some zucchini, I immediately thought of my moms recipe “fried zucchini”. I used to love this snack/side dish as a kid, but haven’t had them in years. I have to say, I got excited making it and I love to share this simple recipe with you today.

Let’s get choppin’…

fry them about 1 minute on each side, or until golden brown. When they are done, lay them on a cooling rack with some paper towel underneath so all the oil can be soaked off.

    1. We apologize Cathy, we just upgraded our recipe cards and had to take the old recipe card off for a few hours. However it is available again for printing.
