Deep Fried Zucchini

Is your garden overflowing with zucchini?  Are you starting to see your friends and family post pictures on Facebook for free zucchini?  Well, welcome to zucchini season.  At least here  in Utah.  This time of year we literally have zucchini all over the place.  If you are like me, you might be completely sick of zucchini bread and in need of some other way to use your zucchini.  This recipe is an old one, but we love it.

Deep Fried Zucchini
1 or 2 zucchini
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 c flour
1 egg
2 TBSP milk
1 c Italian bread crumbs

Peel and remove seeds from zucchini, cut into sticks.  In one bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper.  In a second bowl combine egg and milk.  Put the breadcrumbs in a third bowl.  Roll zucchini sticks in flour mixture first, then egg mixture, then bread crumbs.  Lay on wax  paper and chill in the fridge for 1/2 hour. Then fry in oil until light brown.  Drain on paper towels.  Serve while hot with a side of ranch.

As a side note:  if I have extra zucchini I usually peel, remove seeds, and grate the zucchini.  Then I put it in zip lock bags and freeze it to use during the winter months when I really want zucchini bread.
