The harvest that never ends.........zucchini! But I've found another use for it that was a welcomed surprise, zucchini fries! Baked, and healthier than the french version, these breaded sticks were tasty, which is why I'm sharing them today!
Baked Zucchini Fries
1 large egg white
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 tbsp grated Pecorino Romano cheese (can be found in the spaghetti sauce aisle next to Parmesan cheese)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 425°.
In a small bowl, beat egg whites and season with salt and pepper. In a ziplock bag, place breadcrumbs, garlic powder and cheese and shake well. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
Dip zucchini sticks into eggs then into bread crumb and cheese mixture, a few at a time and shake to coat. Place the breaded zucchini in a single layer and spray more cooking spray on top. Bake at 425° for about 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with 1/2 cup marinara sauce for dipping (.5 pt)
I found this recipe over on Pinterest where someone pinned it from The Girl Who Ate Everything, be sure to head over and check out all her yummy recipes, it's a cute site and she's on Facebook too! This is a great way to use up zucchini !
