This mozzarella stick-meets-zucchini fries hybrid is an awesome way to change up your appetizer game; not to mention, it’s a great recipe for getting picky eaters to munch on some vegetables. And if you’re finding yourself a little worn out on summer’s abundance of zucchini, stuffing the veggie with cheese and then deep-frying gives it an incredibly tasty transformation. 

How to Make It

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.
