Zucchini Parmesan Hoagies

For a meatless meal with loads of flavor, try these saucy sandwiches, made with crispy-fried zucchini and melted cheese.

True story: This hoagie has my heart. It’s light and cheesy and just the thing I want to eat for dinner all summer long, especially when served with a salad on the side. I love how quickly it comes together! Simply slice, fry, bake, sandwich; it’s really that fast! So next time you end up with a few extra zucchini hanging out in your fridge, remember this recipe. You probably have most everything to make it already on hand! 

To start, off by slicing a zucchini or two into ½-inch rounds.

Then you heat up some olive oil (see exact measurements below) in a cast-iron skillet and dredge the zucchini in flour, egg and Progresso Panko Bread Crumbs. Zucchini-Parmesan-Hoagies_02
Fry the slices on both sides until crispy and golden! Zucchini-Parmesan-Hoagies_03
Once the zucchini slices have drained, place them back in the skillet. (Feel free to use an ungreased ovenproof baking dish!) If it ends up being a double decker stack, that’s just fine. Top with Muir Glen marinara, shredded cheese and bake! Zucchini-Parmesan-Hoagies_04
Meanwhile, toast the buns. First, brush them with garlic and olive oil and place oil-side down on a grill pan until crispy. Zucchini-Parmesan-Hoagies_05
Once the zucchini is done baking, about 25 to 30 minutes, remove from the oven and serve on the toasted buns, sprinkled with basil. Zucchini-Parmesan-Hoagies_06
So easy and so good! Zucchini-Parmesan-Hoagies_07
