Coming Out My Ears

If you are growing one zucchini plant you know what I am talking about.  I on the other hand have 4.  What was I thinking!?!  My mother gave me a cookbook a few years ago specifically geared towards zucchini and squash.  I know I will be trying out many of the recipes before the growing season is over!

Zucchini Sticks

3 Med Zucchini

1/2 C Wheat Germ

1/2 C Finely Chopped Almonds

1/4 C Melted Butter
1/4 C Parmesan Cheese, Grated
1/2 tsp Salt
Slice zucchini lengthwise into fours, then, lengthwise into halves to form sticks.  Each zucchini makes about 16 sticks.  In a med bowl, roll about 8 sticks at a time in butter until evenly coated.  With a fork, transfer to a large bowl filled with dry ingredients.  If you are feeling lazy (or avoiding extra dish washing time) you can use a plastic bag… shake to coat.
Lay (not touching) on an ungreased cookie sheet, bake at 350 for 17-20 minutes, or until crisp and tender.

  1. This sounds awesome! We've been doing a lot of breaded zucchini coins, but i've just been using cracker crumbs. Your version sounds way better!!
