zucchini (post #31259)

A friend told me she saw someone making "home fries" out of zucchini on a cooking show.  I've been trying to search the Internet for a recipe buit haven't found one.  Any ideas?

A long long time ago I rolled zuke slices (long ones) in breading and sauteed them. Seems to be the same thing.  Today, I would probably dip them in egg thinned with a bit of water, then in flour, back in the egg, and then in seasoned bread crumbs (VERY fine). Saute in butter and oil.

I do the same - except instead of sauteeing them, I do them on a rack in a VERY hot oven. Very crisp. Panko works well too.

But not in this weather LOL!

Water is a great ingredient to cook with, it has such a neutral flavor

That's how I make them.  Dust of flour, egg wash, very fine bread crumbs, in the oven until crisp.

Yes, that would be what I would do now also (in spite of what I said). Bake with an oiled sheet.

At this time of bursting-with-zucc, I still like the old Madeleine Kamman peeler shavings, leaving the pithy seed interior behind and using the best exterior. On the other hand, I'm happy to feed it to horses without guilt.
