Fried Zucchini Spirals

This is something I saw on the internet and just had to try them my way of course!

But first let me share a cute story about our blueberries. The other day my granddaughter came to visit with her hubby and daughter and I was excited to show her all the berries that were available to us this year. While we were walking around the yard looking at them, Jingles our dog was right beside us. Sammi and I were picking berries off of the bushes and popping them in our mouths when I noticed Jingles biting off the lower berries and chomping them up! She had never done that before when I was picking them and we just got such a kick out of it; guess she figured if they were good enough for us, they were good enough for her too!! Oh and she only took the ones that were ripe; who says dogs aren’t super smart?

 
Well, I’ve made these zucchini treats twice now and the only problems that I encountered were that the first time, most of them got eaten before we even sat down to eat dinner; not really a problem I guess. The other problem is that you really have to watch them little devils as one second they’re not quite done and the next second they’re almost burnt! So when cooking, do NOT take your eyes off them for a sec unless you like them a little bit on the dark side as did Husband and daughter both; SCARRRRRY…………..

Ingredients
  • Desired amount of zucchini, cut in large spirals ( I have one of those as seen on TV ones, ha ha! )
  • Flour
  • Bread crumbs seasoned with Italian seasonings ( I used basil,oregano and parsley )
  • Oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Dredge zucchini with flour in large baking pan in a single layer and let sit for about 5 minutes or until zucchini's moisture makes the flour damp; shake off excess flour.
  2. Now repeat with the bread crumbs to which the desired amount of seasonings are added; let stand again for a few minutes.
  3. Fry in a cast iron skillet over medium heat in about one inch of oil, flipping them as they fry and cook until nicely browned or burnt a little as I did the second time around what was I thinking!
  4. Drain on paper towels being careful not to eat them all while standing there in the kitchen finishing up your cooking............

Baked Italian Zucchini Nibblers

Hope everyone had a nice Mother’s Day! As I mentioned, it was the first year that I got to have my daughter with me and it was so nice. Kenny cooked up my omelet and then topped it off with a steak on the grill,,,,,,,,,,,Yum!

Now let me share this delicious recipe with you. I’m sure most of you out there would call this a frittata but I just prefer to call em as I see em! I found this recipe in one of my old cookbooks (probably before the word frittata even existed, ha ha) and with some alterations to the original recipe, they came out pretty damn good, even if I say so my own Selph?  That was just a little pun on our last name and my computer is telling me I need to do a spell check, as if I didn’t know how to spell my last name, really now……….. Even my daughter thought they were pretty tasty. We had them with some of my homemade spaghetti sauce and I think the next time, I will just make a basic pizza sauce for our dipping pleasure! So with that, here we go:
