In a medium bowl, sightly beat egg yolks; stir in sour cream and flour. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; fold into the sour cream mixture. In a baking dish, about 12 x 7-inches, layer half of the zucchini, half of the sour cream mixture, and half the Cheddar cheese; sprinkle with all of the crumbled bacon. Repeat layers of zucchini, sour cream mixture, and cheese. Toss bread crumbs with melted butter; sprinkle over the top of the casserole. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes.Serves 6 to 8.
