Mom's Fried Zucchini Appetizer Recipe

My mom uses basic ingredients when cooking,  nothing fancy.
 I learned alot from her this is one of my favorites and so easy to make!
Italian flavored bread crumbs
1 teaspoon each dried oregano, parsley, basil and garlic powder
3 teaspoons grating cheese
1 ziplock bag
1 egg beaten with around 3 tablespoons of water
2 or 3 small sliced zucchini's around 1/2 inch in thickness
oil for frying Canola preferred

In the ziplock bag add 2 cups of bread crumbs add all the seasoning and cheese. Dip the sliced zucchini in the egg. Shake in the seasoned bread crumbs. Heat oil on medium heat, drop them in the oil not crowding them and fry until golden brown on each side.
