Fried Battered Zucchini Using Bisquick Type Baking Mix

Oh, this was naughty folks:@) It's very rare that I deep fry something and this Fried Battered Zucchini was a nice little treat! The baking mix batter makes a soft puffy breading surrounding tender, yet still has some bite, zucchini sticks. I enjoyed them as is, any ideas what might be a good dipping sauce? Ranch maybe? Que the ominous music... Much like shark week during the summer, zucchini season is coming! Let's start saving recipes to use it up.

Half of the recipe is more than enough for one large 10"-ish zucchini. 

 In my world this counts as eating my vegetables...
Please just humor me:@)

Fried Battered Zucchini-adapted from
Zucchini cut into approx 3" long sticks about 1/2" thick
1 C baking mix-either Jiffy or Bisquick type mix-I used the Aldi brand
1 egg
1/4 C plus 1 Tblsp milk-I used Half and Half
1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning or your favorite seasoned salt
oil for frying
  1. Add baking mix, egg, milk and seasoning to bowl. Mix well.
  2. Dip zucchini in batter, allow excess to drip off, and fry at approximately 375 degrees until nicely browned. Turning occasionally as needed.
  3. Remove from fryer to paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Serve immediately and enjoy.
Eat well and have a happy day:@) 


  1. I can't see ranch with zuchinni, Lynn. But, what!!! That's the question.

  2. They look like little corn dogs!! Cute! How about a little warm marinara?

  3. They came out great Lynn! Nice way to get your veggies in :-)

  4. Yum! I think a Chipotle Ranch Dip would be great Lynn!

  5. What a great idea to use up the zucchini harvest (which will be weeks away here)! I vote for roasted garlic mayo :)


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
