Oh my gosh! Want to make a big hit at your next party or family gathering. Try these. Got this recipe from my daughter. What a great way to have Zucchini for a snack or side dish. I tried these today and they are great. I called my neighbor to come and enjoy them with me. She loved them. You can be sure I will make these again. Maybe I'll try them with Marinara Sause also. They remind me of the "Bloomin Onion" we have here in Pennsylvania.
