Zucchini Fries

This is a great way to use up all that Zucchini from your home garden! Zucchini at the Farmer's markets and even at regular grocery stores is really inexpensive right now.


2 medium-large zucchini

1/2 cup milk

1 egg

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

1 cup bread crumbs

olive oil or canola oil cooking spray


Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray a large baking sheet with the cooking spray.

Cut the ends off the zucchini and cut the zucchini in half. Then cut each of those pieces in half . Cut each piece in half again. They should be the size of french fries. If your zucchini is super large you might need to cut each piece in half again.

Mix the egg and milk together in a shallow bowl.  Mix the parmesan cheese and bread crumbs in another shallow bowl.

Dip the zucchini fries into the milk mixture and then the bread crumb mixture. Place each fry on the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake the zucchini fries at 425 degrees for approximately 25 minutes.

They should be crispy and golden brown.

Serve immediately! Kids will like to dip these in ranch dressing or warm marinara sauce.

This is a great way to get your kids to eat vegetables. Enjoy!
