Zucchini Chips

This dish is totally not healthy for you.  I’m not even going to try to go there and pretend it is.  I took a perfectly good and healthy vegetable, full of all sorts of yummy nutrients like vitamin A, C, folate, and potassium, and battered and fried it.  And you know what? It was delicious. This was my guilty pleasure and I fully enjoyed it.

You could probably guess that these were coming up since they were trying to have a small cameo appearance in my last post about my zucchini bread panini. This recipe is really easy to make, and is a creative alternative to other fried snacks.  The chips turned out not being as crispy as say, my sweet potato chips but I think that’s because I didn’t really deep fry them.  The breading had a hint of a crunch, and was nicely browned, and served hot, these were just great!

Those look yummy! I think I might be able to pull this ONE recipe of yours off. The rest of them, not so much!

This is perfect! I have 1 zucchini that’s ready from my garden. It’s a little small but Andy doesn’t like them… more for me! Yum yum yum. Will let you know how they turn out.

I love unexpected chips not using the standard potato, but a veggie instead. These look crisp and delicious!

Those look fantastic, now my garden full of zucchini can have another purpose in life. I like the upfront honesty of – “This dish is totally not healthy for you.” That cracked me up. Keep up the great postings.

I love this recipe. I keep pieces of GF bread that have not turned out the way they should. When I need bread crumbs, I run them through the food processor. I can also season them, the way I want them.

They would be used well with this zucchini.
