4C Zucchini Parmesan Crisps
using 4C Homestyle Parmesan Cheese AND
4C Seasoned Gluten Free Crumbs
2 medium zucchini (about 1 pound total)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup 4C Homestyle Grated Parmesan Cheese (3/4-ounce)
1/4 cup 4C Seasoned Gluten Free Crumbs
[and YES you can substitute with 4C Seasoned Panko Crumbs]
1/8 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Slice the zucchini into 1/4-inch thick rounds. In a medium bowl, toss the zucchini with the oil. In a small bowl, combine the 4C Homestyle Parmesan Cheese, 4C Seasoned Gluten Free Crumbs, salt, and a few turns of pepper. Dip each round into the 4C Homestyle Parmesan mixture, coating it evenly on both sides, pressing the coating on to stick, and place in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the zucchini rounds until browned and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove with spatula. Serve immediately with ketchup OR marinara OR cool ranch dipping sauce.
