Cheese Zucchini Crisps

Cheese Zucchini Crisps - Adapted from the Food Down Under recipe


1/3 cup cornflake crumbs
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese or other hard cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt or dried herb/s or both
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
4 very young (4-inches long) zucchini or other summer squash,
cut in 1/2" strips
1/4 cup olive oil (or olive oil spray to further reduce calories)


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl. Either dip squash strips in olive oil or spray both sides with oil spray. Press each strip with crumb mixture on both sides. Arranged coated strips on cookie sheet and bake approximately 10 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Serve immediately.

Serves 4 as a starter, side dish or snack. --

Hi, Dana. Thanks for linking to my post. This one seems to be extremely popular. Cooks must always be looking for new ways to off load their zucchini bounties! Will come visit again; I look forward to seeing what's in your archives. Good luck with your brand-new blog!

Thanks Susan!

I'm so busy I haven't really gotten around to putting in more recipes in. I have a million cookbooks to go through, though!
