LFFC Green Zucchini

These Baked Zucchini Fries from The Comfort of Cooking blog look like the perfect treat for the upcoming holiday weekend. The author writes, "They are flavorful and crispy, easier than potato fries to perfect, and a tasty way to get you and your family a serving of vegetables." Enjoy!

Baked Zucchini Fries
Serves 6

3 medium zucchini, sliced into skinny sticks
2 large eggs, beaten
3 heaping tablespoon flour

½ cup bread crumbs (the author suggests using panko)

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
¼ tsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl, beat egg with a fork until frothy. In another bowl, place flour, and in a third bowl, place your bread crumbs. Toss the breadcrumbs with garlic powder and Parmesan cheese, and set aside.
3. Dip the zucchini sticks into the flour, then egg, and then into the bread crumb mixture. Make sure all sides get coated well. Place the sticks on the prepared baking sheet.
4. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Serve warm with Ranch dressing, marinara sauce, or just as is.
