Easy Fried Zucchini Wheels

Fried Zucchini
This has got to be national Zucchini month! I have so many of these yummy vegetables from my Mom’s garden and I have made tons of delicious recipes!  These fried Zucchini wheels are one of my favorite!  


  • Zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch rounds
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup water
Preheat oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.

Measure flour into a pie plate. In another pie plate combine panko, Parmesan, parsley, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper, to taste. In a third plate add eggs and water.



 Dredge the zucchini in the flour



 Followed by the egg 



And finally in the panko


Working in batches, place the breaded zucchini slices in the hot oil and fry until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined sheet tray and immediately season with salt and pepper. 


These are delicious dipped in a Spicy Ranch dressing!

    I wish I would have had this recipe about a month ago! I threw out so many good zucchinis because I was out of recipes, lol! I will file this away for next summer. I love coming up with new zucchini recipes! Thanks!
