    A recipe from a local guy who does a produce show on our local news. I haven't tried this yet, but it looks interesting.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    bunch

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Note - the orginal recipe didn't have ingredient amounts. When I submitted the recipe, Zaar wouldn't take it without amounts, so I just estimated. I haven't tried this recipe, and I'm just posting as a request from one of the message board topics. So go easy on the ratings and please provide tips.
    2. 2
      Select cucumbers that are firm and preferably thin-skinned and small-seeded.
    3. 3
      Peel, if you wish, slice into 1/8" slices and dip in beaten egg mixture (the eggs with milk). Dredge in flour or preferably Italian seasoned bread crumbs.
    4. 4
      Fry in margarine or vegetable oil till browned on both sides.
    5. 5
      Drain on a paper towel, salt and pepper and top with Parmesan cheese. A great appetizer or side dish.
    6. 6
      Note - hot sauce in the egg mixture or cayenne in the flour or breadcrumbs might kick it up a bit.

      Oh I use to make these all the time, it is a great way to use those cukes in your garden that get too big to eat. I have never used flour but have used plain breadcrumbs and also corn meal.

      This is a great recipe! I used a large deseeded cucumber. I omitted the parmesan, and added oregano, and lawry's season salt to give alittle flavor. I will definatley make this again.

      This was incredible. I'm not too much of a cucumber fan, and have been getting a surplus of them in my CSA, so wanted to use them up. These tasted great, I'm so happy to have found this recipe. They taste like a lighter fried zucchini. My boyfriend thought he was eating zucchini (he dislikes cucumbers). Thank you for this recipe, it is outstanding.
