Baked Zucchini Sticks

 

We’re always looking for new ways to eat zucchini. Well, I am at least. Mike loves his zucchini simple and straightforward – sauteed with salt and pepper and parmesan cheese, and is hesitant to try any other version. While I also really like zucchini prepared that way, I’m more than willing to experiment. Especially when the recipe comes from my beloved King Arthur Flour. I’ve yet to try a recipe from there that I didn’t absolutely love (chocolate globs? blueberry bread? so good!)

These zucchini fries turned out to be as good as I was expecting. Panko bread crumbs and a combination of Italian seasonings make them crispy and flavorful. We dipped them in marinara sauce, and I loved them. Mike said he liked them, but not as much as our traditional zucchini. That was fine by me – that meant I got all the leftovers!

Baked Zucchini Sticks

Ingredients:

3 medium zucchini (about 1 1/4 lbs), cut into 3 inch sticks
1 Tbsp salt
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp parsley
2 eggs, scrambled
olive oil spray
salt

Directions:

Place the zucchini sticks in a colander over a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Let the zucchini drain for 1 hour. Combine the bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and seasonings in a bowl and set aside.. Preheat the oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with olive oil cooking spray. Blot the zucchini dry with paper towels. Dip them in the eggs, roll them in the bread crumb mixture, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Once all the zucchini are on the baking sheet, spray the tops lightly with olive oil spray. Sprinkle with salt. Bake for 12 minutes, then turn the sticks over and bake for 8 more minutes, or until gold brown and crispy. Serve immediately with marinara sauce for dipping.

    These look really flavorful and I have an annoying abundance of zucchini right now. I like how you served them with marinara sauce. Good idea!

    This is probably the fifth or sixth recipe I have tried from your blog. I am always looking for ways to make veggies more appetizing and this was a huge hit! Loved the panko and parmesan breading. Making this again for sure!

    Yum! These were so good. My family just loved them. I stumbled across for blog a few months ago and just love it. Every recipe I have tried has come out great, I can’t even say that for anything I have tried from Pioneer Woman. Can’t wait to try more.

    There were rumors in the media that Paris was envious
    of Kim but it can’t be said with any certainty. After the end of your Mauritius holidays there
    will be numerous experiences for you to share with
    your friends and relatives. On regular days the staff
    are active with their particular work and find no time to interact with all the other staff members corporate entertainment gives them a chance to meet and
    really get to know each other well and this helps to build a better bonding.
