Zucchini fries are a healthier alternative to traditional French fries, and they are just as delicious. They are easy to make, and you can customize the seasoning to suit your taste. They are a perfect appetizer or side dish for a family dinner or a party. This recipe is baked, not fried, which makes it a healthier option, but they still come out crispy and delicious.
I love zucchini fries because they are easy to make, and they are a healthier option than traditional fries. I often make them as a side dish for dinner or as a snack when I'm craving something salty. My kids love them too, and they are a great way to get them to eat more vegetables. I like to serve them with a dipping sauce like marinara or ranch.
- 2 medium zucchinis
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- Cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 425°F (218°C).
Cut the zucchinis into thin sticks, about 1/4 inch wide and 3 inches long.
In a shallow bowl, mix the flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
Beat the eggs in another shallow bowl.
Place the panko breadcrumbs in a third shallow bowl.
Dip each zucchini stick into the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
Dip the zucchini stick into the beaten egg, coating it completely.
Dip the zucchini stick into the panko breadcrumbs, pressing the breadcrumbs onto the zucchini stick to coat it completely.
Place the zucchini sticks on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Spray the zucchini sticks with cooking spray.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
Zucchini fries are a great appetizer for a party or a side dish for a family dinner. They are best served hot and fresh out of the oven. You can serve them with your favorite dipping sauce, such as marinara, ranch, or aioli. They also make a great snack for movie night or game day. You can customize the seasoning to suit your taste, add some parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs for extra flavor, or use a different type of seasoning.
