Baked Zucchini Sticks


Ingredients:

2 large zucchini
2 eggs
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
Cooking spray
Directions:
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. Enjoy!
The Results:
These were a perfect side to go with my Bleu Cheese Hamburgers. (That I didn't get a picture of.) It was nice that they weren't fried. They tasted just as good as fried zucchini. We ate the zucchini sticks with homemade ranch dressing and marinara sauce. My little boy ate 5 of these. They were easy to make and went perfect with the hamburger. Recipe is from http://www.fortheloveofcooking-recipes.blogspot.com/. Thanks Pam for the good recipes.

Ok...I am excited about this. I have TONS of zuchini and am a little sick of having it grilled/sauteed and making bread. I'll have to try these out this week.
