Yellow Squash is the new Zucchini

I have been trying my very best to live a healthy lifestyle by eating more vegetables, and I am learning how to enjoy the ones I dislike the most lol. Like, for example, asparagus and spinach. I also have attempted to eat others that I’ve never tried before. Like, for instance, Zucchini and Yellow Squash. These veggies are my new favorites. 😀 The next ones I want to try are cauliflower, eggplant and Brussels sprouts.

So anyway back to the original subject lol.

These Garlic Parmesan Yellow Squash Chips are incredibly tasty, relatively easy, crisp-tender and healthy. Not to mention they are extremely addicting. Seriously they really are delicious, and if you don’t, believe me, my plate was full of them lol.

OH! They’re also baked!! EEK!

ENJOY!

Garlic Parmesan Yellow Squash Chips

Ingredients

4 yellow squash or Zucchini
3 Tbsp. Olive oil 
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1 C. Progresso Italian Style breadcrumbs
1 C. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. garlic powder
cooking spray

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450.

1. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.
Slice squash small to medium, sliced into 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch rounds
In a large mixing dish, combine squash, olive oil, salt, and pepper; stir together until well combined. In another bowl, mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, and garlic powder.

2. Dip slices of squash in cheese mixture and coat on both sides, pressing on the coating to stick. Set the squash in a single layer on the previously prepared baking sheet. Lightly grease individual slice with cooking spray. This will assist with achieving a crunchier texture.

3. Bake for ten minutes; turn pan and continue to bake for eight to ten minutes, or until chips are golden brown.

Time-saving tip: For those of you who find slicing yellow squash time-consuming and or you are in a rush to go to work or school. Here is a suggestion to help yourself save time, slice the yellow squash the night before and or in the early morning on the day of when you plan on cooking this dish. Next, place the slices in two mason jars and stick them in the refrigerator.
