I absolutely love fried zucchini sticks but they are very fattening and tedious to make when you have to fry them so I found a great recipe that bakes them at one of my favorite food blogs called For the Love of Cooking Thanks Pam this is a great recipe!
2 large zucchini (I used a combination of green and yellow squash)
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of dried basil
Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil or wax paper – spray with cooking spray. Cut the zucchini into half lengthwise then into thick spears. Combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and seasonings then mix thoroughly. Dip the spears into egg then bread crumbs and Parmesan mixture, making sure to coat evenly. Place on baking sheet and spray the top of each spear with cooking spray. Bake for 10-12 minutes then turn the oven to broil and cook, watching carefully, until they become golden brown 45-60 seconds. Serve with marinara sauce or your favorite salad dressing.
