Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 35 minutes Servings: 4-6 Yields: Approximately 4 cups of fries
- 2 medium zucchinis
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 425°F (218°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Cut the zucchinis into sticks that are approximately 1/2 inch thick and 3 inches long. You can make them thicker or thinner depending on your preference, but keep in mind that thicker fries will take longer to cook.
Place the flour in a shallow dish. In a separate shallow dish, beat the eggs. In a third shallow dish, combine the panko breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, dried oregano, salt, and pepper.
Working with one zucchini stick at a time, dredge it in the flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip it in the egg mixture, letting any excess drip off. Finally, coat it in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the breadcrumbs onto the zucchini to help them adhere. Place the coated zucchini stick on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining zucchini sticks, making sure to space them out on the baking sheet.
Lightly spray the zucchini fries with cooking spray. This will help them brown and become crispy. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the fries are golden brown and tender on the inside. Flip the fries halfway through baking to ensure even browning.
Remove the fries from the oven and serve hot, garnished with additional grated parmesan cheese or chopped fresh herbs, if desired.
These Baked Parmesan Zucchini Fries are a delicious and healthy snack or side dish that everyone will love. They're easy to make, loaded with flavor, and a great way to get your daily dose of veggies. Plus, they're much healthier than traditional French fries, so you can indulge without the guilt.
