  • Fried squash HELP needed

    I would like to fry some zucchini. My problem is that every time I fry it half the breading falls off. Please give me some ideas on how to make the breading actually stay stuck to my squash. Thanks

      I usually mix some buttermilk with an egg and dip them in that and then flour. I am thinking of using bread crumbs instead of the flour?

        Try dipping in egg mixture , dusting/dipping in flour, dipping in egg mixture again and then in bread crumbs. You might also try throwing a bit of parmesan cheese into the bread crumbs for more flavour. That is the usual procedure for anything that is 'breaded'.

          1. cut them in slices the size of pickle chips or just a little thicker.

          2. dust them in the seasoned flour

          3. put them in buttermilk

          4. then back in flour

          5. then in 350 oil till done

          *season flour- S/P garlic powder, cayenne pepper and what ever else you want in it just test it with one veg. before you mix all of them.

          you can do pickle chips, mushrooms, onion rings (purple) and chicken breast the same way. I did it for years at Bobby V's

            Are you sure the oil is hot enough?

              I slice mine, dip in egg/milk liquid, dust with flour, dip in egg/milk and then coat with panko crumbs/parmesan cheese mixture. So nice and crunchy!!

                After reading your messages, I have always done the double dip as well. I have just never used the bread crumbs or Panko crumbs the second time around. I hope using the bread crumbs will make a big difference I will let you all know. I am doing them tonight or tomorrow night. Thanks!

                  I just went through a "dredging" lesson last night with DH and I think the trick is to dip in egg/milk/whatever, dredge in mix/flour/breadcrumbs but the secret is letting it sit for about 10-20 minutes for the coating to stick. Mine always comes out great when I let it sit.

                      Alton Brown indicated that food should be dipped in either flour or, if crispy is desired, cornstarch before the egg mixture, then lastly another dry coating -- seasoned flour, bread crumbs, crushed corn flakes, ...

                        Going to have to try some of these suggestions. I never make mine like this. Usually I just cut them up and fry them in some bacon grease with onions. Maybe toss in some cabbage or potatos with them.
