I've had great luck making all my crisp tortilla faves by oiling
tortillas lightly and baking them. I now use the perforated baguette
pan (to which bread dough sticks so badly) to make curved taco shells.
Feliz Dia de Independencia a todos.
Back to okra and such, this summer we tried making crisp breaded
zucchini on the griddle. No more than a light rub with oil is
sufficient for the griddle. I like to season the bread crumbs with
Parmesan and pepper, and the egg with garlic and fresh herbs. It was
better than deep frying, in my estimation, because if anything the
zucchini are reluctant to cook, thus insulated from the griddle, so they
come out really nice and firm, and very crisp.
