Fried Zucchini Recipe

Today I am sharing another family favorite recipe.

This one happens to be my favorite appetizer in the whole world!

It’s something we have at almost every meal {and I’m not exaggerating – we just love it THAT much}!!

I also like to order it at restaurants and have decided that Cheesecake Factory and Claim Jumper have my favorite versions of this yummy dish.

But, really – look not further. This recipe is SO beyond simple and is SO beyond good!!

The BEST Fried Zucchini recipe! { } #zucchini

Fried Zucchini Recipe
  • 1-2 Zucchini
  • 2-3 cups milk
  • Panko Bread Crumbs {Next to Shake n Bake at Grocery Store or you can use regular bread crumbs}
  • 3 cups flour
  • oil
  1. Heat oil to medium heat.
  2. Slice zucchini into several circles. Throw 10-15 slices of zucchini into a bowl of milk.
  3. From there add slices to a gallon bag filled with the flour. Shake around.
  4. Put slices back into the milk and make sure it gets all wet again.
  5. Add slices to a gallon bag filled with Panko crumbs. Shake around.
  6. Fry until golden brown. Repeat process until all the slices are breaded and fried.

We LOVE to eat Zucchini with Ranch Dressing {homemade of course}. I’m sure most of you have had this before, but if you haven’t, I seriously feel sad for you… it’s one of my FAVORITE things in the whole world to eat!!

    Thanks for the zucchini recipe! I've never tried it that way and about this time of year, when our garden is going crazy with zucchini, we'll try it any new way there is. :)Love the video, too. That's a good one!

    I absolutely love fried zucchini, but lately I have been grilling it or just pan frying without the oil. I will have to try the homemade fried ones now thtough:-)

    Breaded fried zucchini is our favourite summer dinner. We only eat it once a year, but when we make it, it is all we have for dinner! We have ours with fresh garden tomatoes and lemon wedges.

    I love zucchini so I will be trying this for sure! I would love to have you come join my Get Social Sunday party and show off your awesome blog!

    I’ll bet the zucchini get a nice thick coating with the double-dip method you’ve outlined here. I love both fried or grilled zucchini and panko, so this looks really good to me. I make a gluten-free panko by rolling over Rice Chex with a rolling pin.

    Hey – nice blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. Im currently using WordPress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

    Very nice! Made these tonight and they were great.

    Made this tonight using breadcrumbs because I didn’t have panko. Came out crispy and yummy! So easy too!I served it with ranch dip. My picky son liked it (even without the ranch dip). Thank you!

    To find the pictures you like, you will need to be very specific in your search queries
    on the internet. 2010 was another year filled with hilarious viral
    videos. In explanation of this point we have to follow the money.

    I made these tonight and couldnt wait to see how they tasted. I was so disappointed and i ruined my zucchini from my garden. It was pretty but had no flavor at all, i ended up throwing them away. Oh well, thanks anyways. The one thing about this recipe is i tried something new and thats always a good thing. I am glad others enjoyed it so much.

    Definately going to try this,yummy !!!
