Yet another zucchini recipe. I hope we can get on top of those awful squash bugs so we can enjoy squash for a little bit more.  I got this recipe from a 1990 Southern Living Annual Recipes.  We only have it once usually during the summer but it is yummy.

Crunchy Deep Fried Zucchini


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 1 cup crushed corn flakes
  • vegetable oil
  • Ranch Dressing


  • Combine first 4 ingredients, add egg, milk and olive oil, stirring until well blended. Set aside.
  • Cut zucchini in half crosswise, cut each half in 8 strips. Dip zucchini in batter, shake off excess, and dredge in crushed cornflakes. Pour oil to a depth of 2 or 3 inches into a Dutch oven or heavy saucepan; heat to 350. Fry zucchini in small batches until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and serve immediately with Ranch Dressing.
  • Great!
