Come mid-summer the squash production peaks and it seems every one is trying to find ways to cook, eat, and giveaway their zucchini and squash. Just this past Sunday at church, it seemed zucchini were falling from the sky. We came home with quite a handful of fresh zucchini.

When Matt lived down south every Sunday they would fry up some zucchini that they brought home from church. Here is a quick and very easy recipe on how to make your own Fried Zucchini with Progresso Italian Bread Crumbs.

Start off with slicing the zucchini about 1/4 inch thick.

Once everything is all cut, prepare two bowls or small flat pans. One for the wet ingredients and one for the dry.

Wet Ingredients are:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk

Mix well

Dry Ingredient:

  • Progresso Bread Crumbs – We love the Progresso Italian Style – but any  styles will work

Next add a small handful of the cut zucchini into the milk/egg wash.

Take them out one by one and place them in the Progresso bread crumbs of your choice. Gently spoon more on the top of the zucchini slice and gently press the bread crumbs onto the slice.

Then after 4-6 slices are breaded, gently place them one by one into the oil that has been warmed to medium and medium high.

After a minute or so simply flip them over and cook to a light golden brown.

Lay them out on paper towels gently sprinkle them with salt to taste.

Try some with the Progresso Bread crumbs and tell me what you think. Every Sunday you can bet this is whats on the table at dinner or as a veggie snack.

I love fried zuchinni and cannot find it anywhere in restaurants, sinceleaving Southern California. So I started making my own. You can also use Panko to give it that extra crunch. :)

We tried this tonight for an appetizer when friends came over. They turned out really good. It was so funny because we had just gotten a zucchini from a friend and said wish we had the recipe. You posted this that same day. Thanks!
