"I left out the Cajun seasoning and sprinkled these with some grated parm cheese. I spread spicy mayo on toasted buns and sandwiched the zucchini slices between. I topped the sandwich off with fresh basil leaves. It was delicious!"- Nikhomemadegood

Top-ranked recipe named "Oven Fried Zucchini"
Slice the squash on a diagonal into 1/2 - 3/4 inch rounds. Par-boil them for 3-4 minutes to tenderize (but not completely cook) them. Drain and let them dry for a few minutes on paper towel.
Place the buttermilk in a shallow bowl. Put the cornmeal and bran in a plastic bag. Add the salt and Cajun spice to the meal mixture and shake the bag to mix.
Pre-heat oven to 400 Lightly spray a cookie sheet
Dip each piece of zucchini in buttermilk to coat it then drop it in the bag. When you have a few pieces in the bag, close it and shake to coat the squash. Place the coated pieces on the cookie sheet.
When all zucchini are breaded spray them lightly with oil to help with browning.
Bake them for about 15 minutes until they are golden brown.

The_Weinerman 10 months agoI used seasoned salt instead of Cajun seasoning & salt. This was fast and easy.
pols005 3 years agoNot nearly as crispy as I would have liked. Family didn't really care for this one. Could be my corn meal was old though.

KaryAnca 5 years agoThis is vegan ONLY IF buttermilk is replaced with a non-dairy alternative (1/2 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice, add enough soy milk to make 1/2 cup).
