Baked Zucchini Fries

My family loves to make zucchini fries in the summer to go with hot dogs and pasta salad. These are great because you get the crunch of a fry without the grease and calories!

What you’ll need:

zucchini (we used 2 1/2 and had more than enough for three people)

1 cup panko bread crumbs (we used an herb blend to add flavor)

1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

a pinch of salt and pepper

2 egg whites

1 cup of milk

Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. Chop up your zucchini into sticks (I prefer mine to be thin).

Please ignore the color of the cutting board - it's just proof that it's had a lot of love.

In one bowl, combine your bread crumbs, parmesan, salt, and pepper. In a second bowl, combine the milk and egg whites. Dip the zucchini sticks into the milk mixture, and then cover in the bread crumb mixture.


Put covered sticks on a parchment paper covered baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes (we prefer 20 because we like them crisper).


Unfortunately, we were so hungry that I didn’t get an “after” picture! But trust me, they’re delicious!
