Panko and Parmesan Baked Zucchini Fries Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup flour (or, Italian breadcrumbs)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups Panko
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 lb zucchini (cut into 4in fry shaped sticks)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In small bowl, combine the flour and seasonings.  Give it a quick mix with a fork and set aside.
In another bowl, beat the egg with salt.  Set that aside.
In a 3rd small bowl, mix the Panko with the Parmesan cheese. Now, line all 3 bowls up side by side.
Like a quick assembly line, dip the zucchini fries into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture and finally the Panko mixture.  Place on a baking sheet and repeat until all of the zucchini fries are coated and lined up nice and pretty.  Place the baking sheet in the oven on the middle rack. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and crispy.  Sprinkle with a smidgen more Parmesan and you’re done! Serve immediately as these can get soggy quick. Whip up your favorite marinara sauce. See those happy veg eating faces?

    Oh yes I am making these! I love zucchinni.. (just can’t spell it).. I will be pinning this! Probably will leave out that cayenne pepper… Too spicy for me;-)

    I haven’t ever had zucchini before, but I would so give this recipe a try. Going to PIN it for future use, maybe try to make it next week!

    I do quite enjoy zucchini on it’s own and have been meaning to get a little creative with it in the kitchen. Like you said there are only so many times a salad will suffice and eating the same thing the same way over and over again gets boring. I’ll definitely have to add this to my must-try list :)

    Thanks for the great recipe!
