Panko bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese make these baked zucchini fries crispy and delicious. These fries are a great alternative to potatoes with sandwiches, burgers, or grilled steaks.
- 2 small to medium zucchini (about 1 pound)
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 cups panko breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground sweet paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 large egg (or 2 egg whites or equivalent egg substitute, lightly beaten)
Gather the ingredients.
Heat oven to 425 F. Line a baking sheet with foil, and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Slice the zucchini into strips about 4 inches in length and 1/2-inch thick. Put the strips in a bowl, and toss with the flour.
In a food processor, pulse the panko crumbs with the Parmesan and seasonings until fine.
Put the egg substitute or eggs in a bowl.
Dip the floured zucchini strips, a few at a time, in the egg mixture. Toss with the crumb mixture. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for about 15 minutes, until nicely browned.
Serve these fries with ketchup, salsa, or a spicy sriracha mayonnaise mixture.
