Oven Fried Zucchini

(based on a recipe at

3 medium/large zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 c dry breadcrumbs
1 T Italian herbs
1/8 tsp black pepper
3 egg whites, lightly beaten

Preheat the oven to 475. In one small bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, Italian herbs, and pepper. Place the egg whites in a separate bowl. Dip the zucchini slices into the egg whites, then coat in the breadcrumbs. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes in the oven, then turn over and bake for another 10 minutes or so, until browned and crispy. Four servings.

Note: A mandoline is the easiest way to get nice, even slices. Don't have one? Borrow it from the Hub Tool Share Program! Ask anyone at the Hub about it. It's free! A food processor works great for making breadcrumbs, and you can borrow that from the Hub Tool Share Program, too! (The food processor makes slicing a snap, but the slices are too thin for this recipe.)
