Recipe Ingredients for Zucchini parmesan

2 large zucchini or summer squash
6 eggs, beaten
2 cups Seasoned Bread Crumbs, Italian Style
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup mozzarella cheese
12 oz. tomato sauce

Recipe Directions for Zucchini parmesan

  1. Wash zucchini, remove ends and slice evenly into 1/3 inch thick coins. Slice the onion very thinly. Peel garlic.

  2. In a shallow bowl, beat eggs until thick and lemon colored.

  3. In a separate shallow bowl, combine flour, onion and garlic powders, paprika, basil, oregano, salt, and bread crumbs, stirring to mix ingredients well.

  4. Dip sliced zucchini into beaten egg, then into flour mixture.

  5. Pour olive oil into a skillet and heat, adding whole garlic cloves. Note: As the garlic cloves become golden, crush them into the oil using the tines of a fork, but remove them before they brown).

  6. Place zucchini in hot olive oil (don't overload the pan as they should cook separated in the oil). Sprinkle over them a few pieces of sliced onion; turn zucchini over as they become golden brown and cook the other side.

  7. Remove to a paper towel to drain. Sprinkle to taste with salt, pepper (and garlic and onion powder, if desired). If you sample the zucchini at this point, be sure to save some for the rest of the dish!

  8. Brush a casserole dish with olive oil and arrange zucchini on bottom. Sprinkle with a layer of Parmesan cheese and a layer of mozzarella, then with a layer of tomato sauce. Other types of cheese may be used, such as Provolone or Muenster (Note: if tomatoes are ripe and in season, sliced ripe tomatoes can be substituted for the sauce in this dish).

  9. Continue to make layers of zucchini, cheeses, and sauce until all ingredients are used, ending with mozzarella.

  10. Place in oven at 350F for 25 minutes or until bubbly. Allow to cool several minutes before slicing.
