  • 2 zucchini medium-sized
  • 1 egg large
  • 1 Tbsp. milk oat, cashew, or soy
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs Italian seasoned*
  • cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • ½ - ¾ tsp. salt to taste
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • Non-stick cooking spray


  1. Cut zucchini into ¼-inch slices, discarding the ends.
  2. In two separate shallow bowls mix together the following:
  3. Bowl 1: Add egg and milk. Whisk until well combined.
  4. Bowl 2: Add breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Toss until combined.
  5. Dip one zucchini slice in the egg wash, letting any excess drip off. Then coat it with the breadcrumbs, pressing firmly into the zucchini so it sticks.  Repeat this process with the remaining zucchini slices.

  7. Air Fry at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Flip the zucchini halfway through cooking. Repeat with the remaining zucchini slices.
