For some reason, however, I love other vegetables breaded and baked (or fried). This includes zucchini, green tomatoes and eggplant. When I was a kid, we went to a greasy spoon down by the lake all the time that had the most amazing breaded and deep-fried green pepper rings. I wish I knew how to make those. Or perhaps not.
Anyway, I think deep fried food is overrated in general. Drag veggies through breadcrumbs and bake them, though, and I’ll meet you at the oven, plate in hand.
Well, fresh local baby zucchini is coming into gardens and produce sections now, and will be unstoppable for the next few weeks.
I want to try this recipe for these Baked Zucchini Fries as soon as possible.
Also, in honor of the avocado recipes coming in Loaves & Dishes tomorrow, Avocado Fries are tantalizing.
