Zucchini and cheese get along so beautifully together in this masterpiece! Juicy slices of zucchini are baked with a coating of bread crumbs and cheese, which gives it a very unique and enjoyable texture.

Since the zucchini slices are dipped in olive oil before coating with other ingredients, you might find that some of the oil oozes out onto the butter paper on baking. That is normal, and not something to worry about! You will really love the gooey yet crisp texture of the cheesy crust – but make sure you have the Baked Cheesy Zucchini Slices fresh and hot, before they get chewy.

You can also use parmesan cheese powder instead of grated cheese. Have a go at other zucchini delights like the Zucchini Fritters with Spicy Mayo Dip and Zucchini and Yellow Pepper Toast .

Can I use cheddar or mozerella cheese instead of parmesan cheese?

   Hi Manisha, Mozzarella surely won''t work as the cheese would melt on baking. You can try using cheddar, we have not tried though. Happy Cooking!

Baked Cheesy Zucchini Slices makes a lovely starter. Parmesan cheese coats the Zucchini really well and when baked a nice cheesy aroma comes. Very innovative recipe and thanks for sharing.
