Battered and Baked Zucchini Fries

Ingredients

  • Three medium zucchini ends removed and sliced into medium sized wedges. ( I used a french fry cutter)
  • 1/2 cup Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
  • 1/2 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 Cup Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 eggs beaten well
  • Salt

Instructions

  1. Half an hour before making your zucchini, slice and then lay out on a kitchen towel. Sprinkle salt on the fries and let sit. After half an hour, roll up the sides of the towel, and squeeze lightly to remove excess water.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 and spray a cooking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Put the 2 eggs in a large ziploc bag. In another ziploc, combine the rest of the ingredients. Working in two batches, put half of the zucchini into the egg bag, seal the bag, and then shake well until all pieces are coated in the egg mixture.
  4. Transfer those zucchini to the breadcrumb bag and shake well until all pieces are evenly coated.
  5. Spray zucchini in a single layer onto your prepared pan. Repeat with remaining zucchini.
  6. Spray zucchini with more cooking spray to help crisp it up and then put in the oven.
  7. Cook for 15 minutes or until the top side is golden brown, then remove from the oven and flip each fry to the other side. Cook for another 10 minutes, or until that side is golden brown. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
