Fried Zucchini

Growing up, our parents would often let us choose a restaurant to eat at for our birthdays.  I loved this tradition and still love to eat out today!  We would go to Garcias, the Marble Club, or Black Angus many times in our home town.  I remember one such outing at Black Angus,  my parents ordered fried zucchini for an appetizer- "wow, a little meal before our meal" I thought "how fun is that".  Ever since, I have loved ordering the dish as a special appetizer treat.  If you can't make it out to dinner though, making your own is the next best thing.   Enjoy!

Fried Zucchini

2 Zucchinis
1 Cup Milk
2 Cups Italian Bread Crumbs
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper 

Slice your zucchinis into medium thick discs- all about the same size.    Pour enough olive oil to generously cover the bottom of a skillet and heat to medium high heat.  Dip each zucchini disc into your milk and then coat with bread crumbs.  Cook in oil for about 1-2 minutes a side.  Cool on a paper towel to relieve excess oil.  Sprinkle while hot with a little salt and pepper to taste.  Serve with Ranch dressing as a dip.
