Come On Up To The House

Fried Zucchini & Mushrooms

We decided to fry some chicken the other night and since we were already frying….I thought this would make fantastic appetizers. They were great!

Fried Zucchini & Mushrooms

1 large zucchini
4 mushrooms
3 eggs
1 cup all purpose flour
2 cups breadcrumbs
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt

Cut the zucchini into 3 inch pieces, like a french fry. Cut the mushrooms in half or quartered if large. You will need three bowls. In one bowl add the flour, one bowl for the eggs, and one for the breadcrumbs. Add the seasonings to the breadcrumbs – garlic, paprika and salt. Whip the eggs together with a whisk or blender.  Prepare a baking sheet with a silpat and set aside. Bread the vegetables in flour, then eggs, then breadcrumbs. Set on the lined baking sheet and continue until everything has been breaded. Now this part is important…put the baking sheet into the refrigerator and let sit for at least 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, fry until golden.

I love horseradish sauces with fried things, so made up this quick sauce to go along with this.

3 tbsp cream style horseradish
2 tbsp mayo
black pepper
