We had some brats cooked on the little gas grill and a delightful veggie
medley of sauteed onions , mushrooms and the FIRST ZUCCHINI from our garden
. I cut it into french-fry size strips and tossed it in there with the
'shrooms , onions , butter and a few diced garlic cloves . Mighty tasty !
And there looks to be a continuing supply coming ...

Good for you !! there is nothing like a first zucchini!! Than being said I am going to tag on here. Had a party last night and a neighbor said her zucchini had been missed and turned into baseball bats so she threw them out !!!!!!
She was scolded by more than one neighbor. I guess she just didn't know all the tricks of the zucchini trade
Chutney ? maybe added nutrition in a batch of homemade salsa ?
I'm not really much of a zuke lover , but it is good in stirfry or grilled
. Last night was kinda like stir fry , woulda been better with some fresh
ginger root . Tonight we'll be enjoying the First Tomato on our salad .
Along with some shredded boiled eggs from our chickens . I'm diggin' this
country livin' !
Shredded zucchini can be used in meat loafs, or as pfannkuchen (latkes),
Zucchini Parmesan Crisps
1 lb. zucchini or squash (about 2 medium-sized)
1/4 cup shredded parmesan (heaping)
1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs (heaping)
... 1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with foil and spray
lightly with vegetable spray.
Slice zucchini or squash into 1/4 inch-thick rounds. Toss rounds with
oil, coating well.
In a wide bowl or plate, combine breadcrumbs, parmesan, salt and pepper.
Place rounds in parmesan-breadcrumb mixture, coating both sides of each
round, pressing to adhere. The mixture will not completely cover each
round, but provides a light coating on each side.
Place rounds in a single layer on baking sheets. Sprinkle any remaining
breadcrumb mixture over the rounds.
Bake for about 22 to 27 minutes, until golden brown. (There is no need
to flip them during baking -- they crisp up on both sides as is.)
Let your imagination be your guide.
it's good filler for almost any muffin or
spiced bread recipe. keeps things moist.
if you don't want people asking you what the
little green bits are (i like 'em) it helps
to peel the zukes before shredding.
shredded and frozen is one way to keep some
through the winter.
You used a frying pan on a grill?
Small zukes are good when halved and grilled, and served with parmesan
(tomato sauce optional). I've always liked the combination of brats and
shrooms, or chicken and red bell peppers, but I'll have to wait a few
more weeks for my squash which is only in bloom now.
