    These were great. I halved the recipe because I only had 1 zucchini. I added some onion powder & a garlic/parsley salt blend. My hubby grilled some which came out really good & I baked some. The ones he grilled were crispier than the baked ones. Very, very good. Need to buy more zucchini! - 10/7/09

    I love this but found the egg whites will stay on better if zucchini is first dipped in flour. Then the bread crumbs will stick better. - 2/16/12

    Had some zukes and yellow squash already sliced so I made this on the fly and took it with us...needless to say, we both enjoyed this VERY much! My husband does NOT eat fried squash....and this he liked very much. I can't wait to try it on green tomatoes....:) Thanks for sharing. - 8/15/10

    These were FANTASTIC! I changed the recipe a bit. I used corn flakes instead of bread crumbs, one egg and just parmesan. So delicious. Next time I will throw some garlic powder in with the cheese and cereal. - 2/27/10

    These were easy to make. After they were cooked (I used my Foreman grill), we dipped ours in homemade salsa. YUM. The next time I make them, I'll try your oven method for cooking. - 8/25/09

  • These were very yummy. Bake at 50 degrees and my smoke alarm was my timer at 5 minutes then again at 5 minutes on the other side! LOL!! So, I got a little exercise running around fanning the detectors to stop their chirping! Well worth the effort! ;-) - 8/12/13

  • I like the idea, but the execution was terrible. The egg did not help the breadcrumbs stick at all. I found sprinkling some flour on the zucchini before the egg helped, but I think next time I'll use a full breading technique (milk, flour, egg, breadcrumbs). More calories, but worth it. - 7/26/13
