Zucchini Chips

In yet another attempt to foster a love for vegetables in my child, I came up with a quick way to make zucchini more kid-friendly. It's a bit like breaded/fried zucchini but without the oil and just enough breading to add some crunch. Next time I plan to add a little grated Parmesan cheese.

These zucchini chips are slightly crisp on the outside and tender in the center. Cooking them under the broiler makes the bread crumbs nice and crispy. Easy to throw together, they're a great snack or side dish and another tasty way to use extra zucchini. So good!

Note: To make the slices even we (carefully) used a mandolin. The Test Kitchen
