Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini (7-8 inches / 20 centimeters)
  • 11 thin slices ham or prociutto
  • 11 thin slices cheese (eg. Fontal, Gruyere, firm mozzrella, swiss)
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoon bread crumbs (54.25 grams)
  • 1/4 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • olive oil (3-4 tablespoons for brushing pans & zucchini)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 400° F (200° C).  Lightly brush one large and one small cookie sheet.
  • Slice Zucchini lengthwise,  thin but not too thin (almost pie pastry crust thickness, you want to be able to roll them up but not break). 
  • In a flat dish mix together bread crumbs, parsley, oregano and salt.
  • Brush both sides of sliced zucchini with olive oil, and dip both sides in bread crumb mixture.  Place on lightly greased cookie sheet, sprinkle with leftover crumbs and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until soft.
  • Remove from oven let sit 5 minutes, then top with a slice of ham and cheese, roll and secure with a toothpick.  Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake approximately 5 minutes or until cheese starts to melt.  Serve immediately sprinkled with fresh chopped Italian parsley if desired.  Enjoy!
