I’ve sorta been on a health kick lately. I say sorta because I also still like my ice cream. I can’t help it. We’re supposed to have dairy in our diet anyways, right? So while I haven’t stopped eating ice cream, I have tried to start eating more vegetables. Lately, we’ve had green beans, asparagus, broccoli and now zucchini.
I really like zucchini, and there are tons of things you can make with it. Travis and I tried something new for us though — baked zucchini fries — and they turned out awesome! They are crunchy but soft on the inside with lots of flavor on the outside. We didn’t even need a sauce to dip them in!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Bread crumbs (We used garlic and herb)
- Grated Parmesan cheese
Pour some bread crumbs into a bowl or onto a plate. Set it up like an assembly line to make it easy. Your zucchini slices, the bowl of eggs, the bowl of breadcrumbs and your baking sheet. Dip each zucchini slice into the egg. Then cover each with bread crumbs. Then set them on your baking sheet. Your hands are sure to get messy!
Once all your zucchini sticks are on the baking sheet, spray them with cooking spray (not a lot).
Bake the sticks for 30 minutes at 425 degrees. When they come out of the oven, sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top.
