Made these as a side dish for our wedding anniversary dinner, adding a clove of minced garlic and using wild boar bacon. They were delicious. Thanks to hoydich for the tip about using a round measuring spoon.
We have made something similar in the past using garlic rather than minced shallot and without bacon; the bacon adds a wonderful extra dimension, and the coins of zucchini make it company-worthy. If you were pressed for time and making this as a side dish, you could just halve the zucchini lengthwise, and go from there.
Will definitely make again.
Very tasty and looking very attractive dish!
I am always looking for hors'd'oeuvre recipes the include vegetables and this one is a winner. The assembly is a little labor intensive but I simplified this by pressing the breading into a round measuring teaspoon and popping it out with a thin knife, placed these on the zucchini rounds, topped with bacon and then pressed down with a fork, sliding the fork off. Much more efficient than pressing the breading on with your fingers. I also eliminated the salt as the cheese is salty enough.
