  • 2 medium zucchini sliced to about 1/4-inch rounds
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs such as Panko
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper or to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs beaten
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Heat the oil: In a large skillet.
  • Combine the dry ingredients: Mix the breadcrumbs together with the salt and pepper. Add the flour to a large shallow plate and beat the eggs in another shallow plate.
  • Prep the zucchini: Dredge the zucchini rounds through the flour first, dip into eggs, and finally dredge into the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to coat.
  • Finish the dish: Fry the zucchini rounds until golden brown on both sides. Repeat until all the zucchini slices are breaded and fried.


These will keep in the fridge for 3 – 4 days stored in an airtight container. They freeze well too! Just freeze individually on a baking sheet before transferring to an airtight container or freezer bag. They will keep for up to 3 months and can be heated back up in the oven to temperature when ready to enjoy.
