"Crisp, light and very tasty deep-fried zucchini. Serve in a napkin-lined basket with a side of Ranch-style dressing."


2 quarts oil for frying

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 eggs

3 zucchini, quartered

1/4 cup heavy cream

3/4 cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper



  1. In a heavy saucepan or deep fryer, preheat oil to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a blender, mix the eggs, heavy cream, pepper and salt. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl.
  3. Slice the zucchini into pieces 2 to 3 inches long. Dip the pieces into the egg mixture, then coat them with the bread crumbs.
  4. Carefully place the battered pieces in the oil and fry 3 to 4 minutes, until brown and crispy. Drain fried pieces on a paper towel. Repeat until all the slices have been fried.
