Ingredients

  • 2 large round zucchini
  • ~1 1/2 cups (130g) breadcrumbs

  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • Salt and pepper to season

  • Slice the zucchini into rounds about 1/4 inch thick and toss them in the flour, shake to remove any excess then dip the slices one by one in the egg and then roll in breadcrumbs until completely covered.
