Notes

  • Note 1, choose medium over large zucchini
  • Note 2 this is the actual finely sliced cheese (from the fridge section), not the stuff that comes in a little jar in the pasta aisle 
  • Note 3 any grated cheese such as light, tasty, mozzarella, cheddar or shredded cheese will work well
  • Note 4 sometimes I use regular milk and sometimes almond milk, just depends on what I have in the fridge and both types work well. 
  • Note 5 your food processor will have this type of blade, usually on the other side of the 'shred' blade 
  • Note 6 lay the zucchini slices flat on top of the bread and not in too much of a pile. If they are too thick the batter will be raw underneath. Spread them out to ensure batter is consistently cooked and press gently with the tip of a finger to make them stick to the top of the bread.
