Have you tried Kraft Fresh Take?  I have used Kraft Fresh Take to create an easy dinner using it as a breading for chicken, ground beef and even fish. We love it. So when I was given the challenge to take Kraft Fresh Take and make a unique recipe for my family, I jumped at it.
I headed to Walmart to purchase Kraft Fresh Take. I found it in the dairy section next to the Kraft Shredded Cheese. There were so many tasty flavor combinations to choose from. While you are at Walmart, between now and 7/31/13, be on the lookout for peelies aka immediately redeemable coupons found on chicken in Walmart’s meat department. The coupon will take $1.00 off the price of one chicken item when you buy one Kraft Fresh Take!

Kraft Fresh Take is a meal kit that provides us with a “fresh take” on any meal. Half of the Kraft Fresh Take is the breadcrumb mix and the other half is the cheese mix. I love how the mixes are perfectly portioned and kept in separate bags so as to prevent moisture from damaging the crunch of the breadcrumbs.


For my recipe, I decided to make an appetizer using Kraft Fresh Take. I wanted my appetizer to be family friendly and to also have a healthy spin on it. One vegetable that I love cooking with is zucchini. I love it baked, roasted, sautéed, steamed and grilled. While I love zucchini in all of its forms, I know that many kids don’t like it. So my goal was to take the splendid crunchiness and cheesiness of Kraft Fresh Take and combine it with zucchini to make a family favorite appetizer.


To make my Parmesan Zucchini Crisps, you will need just three ingredients (well, if you use two types of squash like I did, you will actually need four ingredients). You need one package of Kraft Fresh Take Italian Parmesan, one egg and squash. I used one yellow squash and one zucchini.

To prepare this appetizer, pour the breadcrumbs, cheese and cracked egg into three separate bowls. Beat the egg with a fork until fluffly. Cut the zucchini into ¼ inch rounds. Do your best to cut the zucchini into same sizes to insure that they bake evenly.


Dip the sliced zucchini into the egg and then into the Kraft Fresh Take breadcrumbs. Place onto a greased cookie sheet.


Place in oven at 450 degrees. Set timer for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, take the cookie sheet out and top each baked zucchini with the parmesan cheese from your Kraft Fresh Take package. Place the cookie sheet back into the oven for five more minutes or until cheese is melted.


Once cheese is melted, take the Parmesan Zucchini Crisps out of the oven and enjoy. You will love the crunchy goodness that each flavorful bite has. You can eat these bites as is, or you can dip into marinara sauce.  I took my Parmesan Zucchini Crisps and shared them with one of my favorite kiddos who also happens to be my next door neighbor.  He self admittedly had never had zucchini before trying my Parmesan Zucchini Crisps. He loved them. In fact, he asked for seconds and then thirds. (See my Google Plus album for proof! :))


Using Kraft Fresh Take saved me lots of time when making this recipe. I didn’t have to use any additional seasoning as the Kraft Fresh Take had wonderful flavor. I never would have been able to make Parmesan Zucchini Crisps with just 3 ingredients if it wasn’t for using Kraft Fresh Take!

    I just finished making these and they are wonderful! I used green and yellow squash and even cucumber. Thank you for the inspiration! Kraft Fresh Take definitely makes a nice addition to my cooking repertoire :-)

      Yeah! I’m so glad to hear they turned out good! I love that you used cucumber! I didn’t think of that! Now I will have to try cucumber too :)

    Delicious, you don’t even need a dip! I saw your recipe and had to go buy some Kraft Fresh Take – I had coupons, so got a good deal on them. I made some using the Chili Pepper Lime and some with the Italian Parmesan (I added some plain whole wheat bread crumbs to reduce the salt per serving and used plain yogurt instead of an egg). Thanks for the great idea, these are quick, easy and much healthier than deep fried.

      Awesome Kathleen! I love how you “healthified” my recipe! I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed them! Now you have inspired me to make them with Chili Pepper Lime and yogurt! Yum! Thanks for the comment!
