Stuffed Zucchini


  • 12 small tender zucchini
  • 1/4 pound Monterey jack cheese

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons flour
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)


  1. Parboil zucchini in boiling salted water for 5 minutes.

  3. Beat egg whites very stiff; still beating, add yolks, slowly, one at a time, then salt, pepper and flour.
  4. Heat 1/2 inch of oil in a pan.
  5. Dip zucchini into egg batter, and fry until well-browned on both sides.
