  • 2 large zucchini
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese cut into 4 logs
  • 1/2 cup flour all-purpose
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 2/3 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce


  1. Cut ends off zucchini, and cut each in half crosswise. Using an apple corer, remove the center of each zucchini piece, and stuff each with 1 mozzarella log. Cut stuffed zucchini crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds.

  2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Place eggs in a second shallow dish, and breadcrumbs in a third shallow dish. Dredge each stuffed zucchini round in flour, and dip in egg, shaking off excess. Dip in breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere.

  3. Heat oil in small saucepan over medium-high. Fry coated zucchini rounds 3 at a time, turning occasionally with a fork, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer fried zucchini rounds to a plate lined with paper towels to drain; sprinkle with salt. Serve with marinara sauce.
