Crispy Fried Zucchini and Pet Love

Monday, May 9, 2011

Now I love fried food, but I really love a good fried vegetable. Onion rings, cauliflower, mushrooms, and ZUCCHINI. For the longest Ive been trying to get the breading to stay on and I failed everytime. But finally I have a recipe where it works and the breading is super crispy and oh so flavorful.

My friend Emily gave me the cute Labrador Mug, so if you have pets, give em a shout out below! My dog Chazz is hyper, sweet and we call him the Culinary Puppy. He WILL NOT eat popcorn without butter, he waits for you to season it up and then he's ready! Haha

Hope you enjoy!!


Crispy Fried Zucchini

  • 3 medium zucchini's, sliced into strips
  • 1 bag Three cheese croutons
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk,(1 cup milk, 2 tbl. vinegar or lemon juice)
  • splash of hot sauce
  • Hot Oil for frying
Using a food processor, pulse croutons until fully crushed. In a bowl, add the  crushed croutons, breadcrumbs, and salt.

Make a dredge line up. Flour, Buttermilk(add in a splash of hot sauce to buttermilk), then Breadcrumbs.

Take each strip, dredge well in flour, then dip in buttermilk, and coat with the breadcrumbs.

Fry in hot oil for 2 minutes perside or until golden and crispy. Remove and place on paper towels.

Enjoy with your favorite marinara and ranch sauce!!

Miss Muffy said...

I have a zucchini AND yellow squash calling to me from the crisper drawer right now, now! Thanks! So excited to make these. I too, just figured out the flour before the wash then the crumb coating secret on gardein chicken nuggets I make (I'm vegan). Changes everything! Also- if breading still comes off ever, someone told me to let the coating sit on the food for a while before frying. It "seals" it on there. Yay for well-fried food!!! :) Stopping by from Tasty Tuesday. Yummy :)

Jacqui' said...

@Miss Muffy, yes well fried food rocks.haha My friend is doing a vegan challenge so I'll be doing a fun vegan recipe next week. Thanks for stopping by!! =]
