Main Ingredient:  1 large zucchini

HUGE!

My friend kindly gave this and another lovely zucchini from her garden. I was very impressed with them, then I was even more impressed when she told me it was her first attempt at growing a garden.. would you believe it! I can’t wait to see what she grows for her second attempt!!

The following is just one of the things I made with these lovely home grown goodies!

Step 1:

Cut the zucchini in to slices, about 1cm thick.

Like this...but more!

Next you will need:

1 large handful of plain flour,

1 large handful of bread crumbs,

1 egg,

1 splat of goats milk (no more than 1/4 cup) oh and you could use cows milk if you prefer.

A pinch of sea salt and some freshly ground pepper.

 

 

Step 2:

Put the plain flour on to a flat surface, a plate is fine. Lightly coat the zucchini in the flour by sitting it on the flour then turning in over. If there is too much just brush it off with your finger. You only need a light covering.

Some flour might end up on bench too!

Step 3:

The next thing you need is a bowl, crack your egg into the bowl and stir with a fork until mixed. Then add the goats milk, the salt, and pepper.  Stir this altogether.

Step 4:

Take the zucchini that has already has a light flour coating and dip it in to this mix. Make sure you turn it over and get a good covering.

As you can see you really don't need much.

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5:

Next you need to spread out your bread crumbs on a level surface, actually a bowl is fine too. If you like you can mix in some spices with it if you like something with some zing if you are into that sort of thing.

 

Step 6:

Pick up the zucchini up out of the egg mix and coat both sides of it with bread crumbs. Then set side.

Ready to cook! Hmm.. still got it on the bench with a bowl!!

Step 7:

Repeat all of the steps until all of the zucchini is dipped ready for cooking. If you are trying to work out how many to do, I found that 3 good size pieces are enough per person.

Step 8:

Next you will need a frying pan. One with a good solid base always helps. Fry them with some vegetable oil over medium heat, not too hot or it will burn the bread crumbs and not cook the zucchini. Once they are soft and the bread crumbs are brown, they are ready to eat.

 

 

Remember these will go really well with just about anything, but just in case you are wondering what I did put with them…….I did roast kangaroo with mashed potatoes, honey carrots, accompanied by a capsicum and pineapple chutney. Oh yes, it was very, very YUMMY!

Hungry yet???
