baked zucchini fries
These little fries are absolutely fabulous, easy to make, and fun to eat! These are a perfect snack or appetizer, but they'd also be a great side dish alternative to burgers, a steak... whatever! I dipped them in some Greek yogurt sprinkled with salt, pepper and chives, but you could dip them in marinara, ketchup, ranch... see how versatile they are?
Baked Zucchini Fries (adapted from Skinnytaste)
3 medium zucchini sliced into sticks
1 egg white
1/3 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a small bowl, beat egg whites and season with salt and pepper. In a ziplock bag, place breadcrumbs, garlic powder and Parmesan and shake well. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top. Spray the rack with cooking spray and set aside.
Dip a few zucchini sticks into eggs, then into breadcrumb mixture, shaking to coat. Place the breaded zucchini in a single layer on the wire. Repeat with remaining zucchini. Spray cooking spray on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Serve with desired dipping sauce and enjoy!
