Ingredients for Parmesan Zucchini Bites

You know I love a simple ingredient list and this recipe totally hits the mark with only four ingredients. Here’s what you are going to need:

  • Zucchini: Grab some zucchini from the grocery store or your local farmers market.
  • Butter: For brushing the zucchini. This will help the parmesan stick as well as provide some rich flavor.
  • Italian seasoning: Use your favorite brand or mix up your own.
  • Parmesan cheese: It will melt better and taste best if you grate the parmesan fresh.

Assemble the Zucchini

Start by washing and drying your zucchini. Cut off the ends. Slice the zucchini into 1/4-inch coins.

Line them up on a large parchment lined baking sheet. The parchment paper makes clean up a snap.

Brush the zucchini with melted butter than sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese.

Bake until golden and tender.

Recipe Notes

Change up the herbs. I love Italian seasoning in this recipe but feel free to use what you have or love. A Greek seasoning would be delicious. Or add in some garlic powder for an extra kick of flavor.

Add extra cheese. If you are a cheese addict, add some extra cheese to make it indulgent.

Dip options. These are great on their own or served with a dip. Marinara sauce or ranch are my favorite options.

Out of zucchini? Yellow squash is delicous in this recipe too. You could sub it for the zucchini or do a mix of both for variety.
