Baked Parmesan Zucchini Chips

Posted: Updated:

Looking for a different, easy way to get your daily veggie intake? How do baked zucchini parmesan chips sound to you?

Feel free to use any other vegetable (sweet potato would be lovely), and coat them with some delicious breadcrumbs and parmesan. Bake until golden, and you can taste the cheesy flavors and munch with a crunch. These would be perfect as a snack, or as a side dish. Make sure you include some good dip too!
