So fast & easy to make. The crackers help give it a buttery taste. Will definitely make again! We substituted seasoning salt for the salt & pepper. Yum! Read More

I'm giving these 3 stars because 2T of olive oil isn't going to fry your zucchini, especially when sliced half of an inch thick! I started with a little more than that and it still wasn't enough. I ended up using enough oil to half submerge the slices, and also ended up making the slices only half as thick. I don't keep buttery crackers in the pantry so I melted a generous amount of butter and mixed it with plain bread crumbs. If you do use the crackers though, I recommend giving them a good spin through the food processor to get the crumbs nice and small. My final outcome was quite tasty; served with warm marinara.

I don't like zucchini but I was given a ginormous one and my husband says he likes it fried so here I came for a recipe! This was very good! I did mix up a bowl with a little flour mixed with salt, pepper, garlic powder and dipped the pieces in the flour, then egg, then the crackers. I sliced it thin and definitely used more oil (I put about 1/2 in in pan I think). My kids gobbled them up and my husband said they were just like he remembered! Read More

Breading does not stick had to use a lot more than 2 tbs. of oil they burned before the zuccini got soft. Read More

Instead of coating with egg, I coated them with olive oil and used shake and bake. Easier and faster to coat with the breadcrumbs in the bag provided, definitely worked just as well! I also coated the frying pan with a thin layer of veggie oil (probably a 1/4 cup or so) and they fried up fine. Read More

I loved this recipe!!! I changed the serving size from 4 to 2 and the ingredients were calculated correctly and the fried zucchini turned out great!!! I actually liked it better with the cracker crumbs than using bread crumbs! I will definitely make this again!!! Read More

really good... i used more seasoning because i like strong flavors... also just keep the bottle of oil by you because you need to keep adding more... 1/2 inch is way too thick and takes a very long time to cook... i should've looked at the reviews first lol.... but a very good dish. bravo!
