Zucchini Rounds

July 18, 2011

One of my favorite summertime dishes my grandmother makes is Zucchini Rounds. Perfect for a side dish, served hot or cold, or a light lunch, these tasty vegetable patties are irresistible. The rounds are made using Bisquick mix as the base and combining Parmesan cheese, scallions, garlic, parsley, eggs and paper-thin, sliced zucchini into a mixture to form small patties. The best way to slice the zucchini paper-thin is to use a vegetable shredder attachment for a food processor. If you don’t have this, you can also slice the zucchini by  hand, making sure the zucchini is cut very, very thin. After sautéing the patties in a hot, buttered skillet, they form a crispy crust, while the inside stays moist. After you make these Zucchini Rounds, I am sure you will add this delicious and summery dish to your summer cooking repertoire!

Zucchini Rounds

Ingredients
1/3 Bisquick Mix (Betty Crocker)
1/4 grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 teaspoon grated black pepper
