How to Make Pecan Crusted Zucchini Bites


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread the pecans on a baking sheet, and bake until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes. Set pecans aside to cool. Raise the oven temperature to 375 degrees (190 degrees C).
  2. Chop pecans finely, and then combine in a shallow bowl with the salt and pepper. Place the flour in another shallow bowl. In a third bowl, whisk the eggs together until well blended. First dip each zucchini slice into the flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip them into the egg, and finally into the finely chopped pecans.
  3. In a large oven-proof frying pan, melt the butter over a medium heat. Arrange the zucchini in a single layer in the pan. Cook, turning once, until golden on both sides, 5 minutes total.
  4. Place the frying pan in the preheated oven, and bake about 10 minutes. Do not allow the nut coating to burn. Serve immediately.
