What do you do when you’re up to eyeballs with zucchini? I’ve made muffins, shredded it and froze it, but still have more to use. We’re having stuffed zucchini later this week, but I decided to try making zucchini fries. They were a HIT! The kids gobbled them up and I found another way to use up the monster zucchinis that have been taking over my counter tops. They’re so simple to make!
1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten
3 Tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, cheese, and seasonings. Cut the zucchini into matchstick sized pieces, removing the seeds. Dip the zucchini sticks into the egg and then coat with seasoned breadcrumbs.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the crumbs are golden brown and the zucchini is cooked through.
