Can I Use Yellow Squash to Make Crisps

If you prefer yellow squash feel free to slice and bake up the squash the same way. 

Squash and zucchini I feel offer similar flavor so I think this could be tasty. The cook time would be similar, just keep an eye and pull when you feel it’s ready.

Can I Use My Air Fryer

You all know I love my air fryer! Feel free to use your air fryer in replace of the oven. You will cook the same way, and just adjust the cooking time to when your crisp is done remove.

Every air fryer heats a bit different so cook time will vary a bit.

Tips for Making

  • Even Layer | Make sure there is space between each zucchini on the baking sheet. You need this so all pieces bake up evenly. Do not overlap the zucchini. 
  • Slices | Slice your zucchini in even think layers so you get zucchini that is all cooked to the right doneness. 
  • Season | Now you can change up the seasoning on these zucchini crisps. Feel free to add your favorite spices or seasonings to try out a different mix of flavors.

  1. I’m a little confused – I don’t see when/where you put the melted butter with garlic and parsley. Do you put the zukes in and coat them, or spread it on slices on the baking sheet? Thanks for the clarification.
