"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!"

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1/2 pound Zucchini squash; - two squash
1/4 cup Cornmeal; - I use the yellow version

1/2 cup Buttermilk; - low fat if you wish
Oven spray oil

Original recipe makes 4 Servings

Preparation

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.

Each (about 6 piece) serving contains:

I used seasoned salt instead of Cajun seasoning & salt. This was fast and easy.

Not nearly as crispy as I would have liked. Family didn't really care for this one. Could be my corn meal was old though.

This 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).
