2-3medium zucchini (I used one green and one golden) Note: if your zucchini are very small you'll need more.)
olive oil (I use an olive oil sprayer which I recently bought and love!)
1/3cupdry bread crumbs (I used Italian seasoned crumbs)
1/3cupgrated Parmesan cheese
salt and fresh cracked pepper
hot sauce or chili sauce to taste
Preheat oven to 450F Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray, or brush it on.
Slice your zucchini into 1/4 inch rounds.
Prepare two bolws for dipping. In one bowl toss the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and a little salt and pepper. In the other bowl, add the buttermilk.
Using one hand for wet and one hand for the dry, dip each zucchini into the buttermilk, and then into the breadcrumbs, turning to coat well.
Place the zucchini on your sprayed baking sheet in a single layer. I like to spritz the tops with a light spray of olive oil, but that's optional.
Bake for about 20 minutes, then flip and bake for about 4-5 minutes more.
Serve hot with the fry sauce for dipping.
to make the fry sauce
Whisk the mayo and ketchup together and add hot sauce to taste.
Feel free to mess with the ratio of mayo to ketchup in your fry sauce. You can jazz it up with added ingredients like Worcestershire sauce, creamed horseradish, pickle juice(!) chipotle powder, paprika, or cayenne.
