YUM!! I have a recipe for you today that I love. I hope you might try it and love it too.
I have lots of zucchini in the garden. I planted two plants and then I had a volunteer plant come up too….so that means I need more ways to use it than regular fried zucchini in butter or zucchini sweets. Goodness knows I shouldn’t be eating so many sweets.
So…I went to the computer and typed in Zucchini. I immediately saw a recipe for Air Fryer Zucchini Fries. WOW, that seemed like something I’d like to try. I immediately did and I’m so glad I did.
This is the site I saw the recipe from…I did modify it a bit.
I peeled and cut the zucchini. I mixed up some crumbs. The recipe called for Panko bread crumbs…only problem, the only ones I had were lemon-pepper flavored. I bought them by accident. The pepper was really strong and I knew it would be too much spice for the childcare kiddos so I used fewer crumbs and added extra parmesan. I also added some yellow corn meal.
I put the crumbs in a bag and shook them up.
Here is how mine looked coming out of the frier.
The site offered many different recipes for dipping sauces. You’ll have to hop over there and see which sauce most appeals to your taste buds. I tried these with the childcare kids and I opted on the side of caution and made the Fry Sauce.
It tastes a bit like Yum-Yum Sauce. I REALLY liked these. The nice option is that they can be flavored so many different ways. You could add taco seasoning to the crumbs and there would be a taco taste…between the things that can be added and the sauces that can be made to accompany the zucchini fries, there is sure to be a combo that your family will like.
I’m thrilled to have another good option for zucchini. With how many plants I have, I’m going to need even more recipes so I’m off on a hunt…do you have any?? I’d love more zucchini recipes.
