I had these today as part of lunch and absolutely LOVED them! I almost felt guilty eating them because they taste like something that isn't OP. I halved the recipe and found it to be more than enough. I'm a huge fried zucchini fan so this is a bit of a lifesaver for me!

I made these with garlic instead of basil. They were so good. It reminded me of the fried zucchini my grandmother makes! A++++

Made this tonight for my co-workers...had to pass out the recipe to everybody. I used FOUR large zucchinis and doubled the recipe for the spread...there were about 5 pieces left, THAT'S IT!!! Since I posted the last time I've made these about 3 more times. It's one of my favorite recipes so far!!!

Just a reminder that if you use regular mayonnaise this makes 6 servings, 3 if using reduced fat, sugar free mayo

I don't know why I never thought to look for sugar-free mayo (well, except that I only use it to make up dressings or THIS recipe, I guess). Got any brand names on RF SF mayo???

They're not AS good once they've cooled and they tend to get just a little soggy, but they still taste yummy.

I haven't tried it, but I think it would work w/ any vegetable. Matter of fact, I think I'm going to bake some chicken breasts and then coat it w/ the mixture and use it as chicken parmesan.

These are fantastic! I had extra mayo mixture so I put some on turkey pepperoni slices and broiled right next to the zucchini and they turned out great too! Like little pizza bites.

By the way, I've used the mixture on chicken breasts and made chicken parmesan that way. Everybody loved it!!!
