The fun name of this recipe may be just enough to get your kids to try this delicious veggie dish. This is also a great recipe to get the kids involved in preparing. Older children can frost the zucchini and younger ones can dip them into the bread crumbs.
3 medium zucchini (about 8-9 inches long)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
3 Tbsp parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/3 cup Panko or other bread crumbs
Cut zucchini into 3/4-inch rounds. Steam in microwave until barely tender, about 2-4 minutes (test with fork). Drain and let cool. Mix together remaining ingredients except the bread crumbs. Frost one side of the zucchini slice with the mayonnaise mixture. Dip the frosted side of the zucchini in bread crumbs and place them on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Broil them in the oven until lightly browned.
