    One of my favorites! Dont say yuk until you've tried it. Bread it like you would any other fried veggie and fry, I slice mine long, fits the bread better that way. Fresh tomato from garden, not fried and not green, a little garlic, pepper jack cheese and grill that baby! Oh I'm in heaven this morning......Yummy. Oh i forgot, low carb bread....LOL you gotta make up for the cheese and the cuke!

    Sounds like something to try. I like fresh tomato and cucumber sandwiches, but never tried this way. Yum!

    Could it be grilled without frying the cuke first? It sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing! :-)

    I used to fry cucumbers when we had a a garden. I was pretty much the only one who ate them. Good idea slicing them lengthwise, wish I 'd thought of that.

    Cukes fit right in a mixed grill.Along with sliced zucchini etc.I brush them with italian dressing.There's never a sliver left.

    Oh yummy this sounds good. I have never had fried cucumbers but I always make me cucumber sandwiches with tortillas. I just peel the cucumber (fresh out of the garden is even better) slice it and put it on a warmed tortilla (of course these are even better if the tortilla is homemade) but yum yum. I have had these since I was a little girl. I went to a quilting retreat at my friends house the first time I decided I needed a tortilla cucumber sandwich and they thought I was crazy but now they eat them too. I gotta tell them about the fried cucumbers with all the grilled things on it. Thanks for sharing this.

    I need to try this. I have 2 cucumbers in the fridge now and the only way I know to use them is salads and marinated.
    I wonder how mushrooms would work with them. I love to try new things.

    I made zucchini fries in the oven with breading. They were in a Weight Watcher book and they are delicious(4 pts plus). :thumbup:

    We eat a lot of veggie sandwiches at my house. I will definitely try this one.

    One of our favorites is a PBOT: peanut butter, thin slice of Vidaila onion, and tomato, lots of pepper, salt on lightly toasted Ezekiel bread (or bread of choice).

    Do not YUKE until you have tried same.
