Crispy Greek Zucchini Slices

Those of you who read this website often know that eggplant parmesan is one of my favorite meals.  Well, this year, I started making zucchini parmesan a lot.  My garden has been growing so. Much. Zucchini.   Well, I have taken this recipe further.  Instead of zucchini parmesan, I have made crispy zucchini slices with all of my favorite Greek toppings!  This dish is the perfect meatless meal that is bursting with flavor

The hardest part about this dish was coming up with a name for it.   This is a take on Eggplant parmesan. This dish is not eggplant nor has parmesan.   I guess it’s technically called “zucchini feta?”  For several years now, when I can’t get my hands on a good eggplant, I will make zucchini parmesan.   I have been making zucchini parmesan quite often this year, as our garden has been producing so. Much. Zucchini.   And my family has been enjoying many meals of oven-baked zucchini slices.

These Crispy Greek Zucchini Slices are loaded with all of my favorite Greek toppings!  Fresh garden baby tomatoes, kalamata olives, feta cheese, and tzatziki sauce.  I have also added some of my favorite Greek spices to the breadcrumbs.  This was an excellent meal!

 

This meal is super easy to prepare!  All you need is

a Sheet pan

Two large zucchini or summer squash

Four eggs

1/2 cup olive oil

panko breadcrumbs

Greek seasoning

Dried Dill

tomatoes

kalamata olives

feta cheese

Tzatziki sauce.

I like to serve pasta when I make this meal.  That way, my kids are happy with pasta with a few zucchini slices on top, and my husband and I can get our zucchini fix in without any complaints.
