½ cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

HOW TO MAKE PARMESAN-CRUSTED FRIED ZUCCHINI
Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, add in the bread crumbs, garlic powder, 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese, parsley, and black pepper. Stir until well mixed.
Step 2: Dip the sliced zucchinis into the eggs and dip into the bread crumb mixture. Make sure to shake and remove the excess crumbs.
Step 3: Prepare a clean plate. Place the coated zucchinis on the plate and make sure not to stack to prevent it from sticking and ruining the coating.
Step 4: Place a large skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium.
Step 5: Add in vegetable oil and wait for it to bubble.
Step 6: Once the oil is hot, add in the breaded zucchini and fry it until golden brown for 2 to 3 minutes each.
Step 7: Line a clean plate with a paper towel. Place the fried zucchinis on the plate to drain the excess oil.
Step 8: Sprinkle salt and parmesan cheese on top.
Step 9: Serve and enjoy!
