Baked Zucchini Recipe Tips

  • The easiest way to prevent soggy zucchini is to lay out your zucchini rounds on some paper towels and sprinkle some salt over them on both sides. Let your zucchini sweat for a few minutes to draw out the moisture.
  • If you want your zucchini chips perfectly golden and crisp, drizzle them lightly with oil prior to baking.
  • Don’t crowd the zucchini on your baking sheet! Space your zucchini out on your baking sheet, or use multiple baking sheets. When you crowd your zucchini you end up steaming them and they won’t get nice and crispy.
  • I would advice flipping your zucchini over halfway through cooking to get them really nice and crisp.

What to Serve with Baked Crispy Zucchini

Baked crispy zucchini goes really well with dipping sauces. I love them with hummus personally but they are really great with Baba Ganoush, marina, chipotle mayo, tsatsiki, and other favourite dips.

Eat them straight out of the oven when they are hot and crispy on their own too!

Can I Make Baked Zucchini Crisps Ahead of Time?

The zucchini rounds can be breaded ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to be baked and served.

Alternatively you could bake and freeze or refrigerate and then heat again carefully when ready to serve.
