Zucchini Fries

This dish could change your life.  If you don't like zucchini I guess it might not be for you...  But really, another winner from the gals at Our Best Bites, these cooks are inspriational.  At-home Moms who cook not just to get by, but to enjoy which is my goal in life!  These fries are so good my husband requested them as part of his Father's Day Dinner.

The original recipe called for panko breadcrumbs and I didn't have that so I used regular bread crumbs and it turned out fantastic.  So use whatever kind you want.

Baked Zucchini Fries

1 lb zucchini
3/4 c. italian bread crumbs (panko or regular)
1/4 c. parmesan cheese (from the can)
1 tsp granulated garlic
2 eggs or 4 egg whites

Preheat your oven to 425.  Lay some foil on the bottom of a cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray.  Combine the breadcrumbs, cheese and garlic on a plate.  Whisk the eggs well in a pie plate or shallow bowl.  Slice the zucchini in half lengthwise and slice each half in half lengthwise.  Then slice the zucchini in strips to create "fries".  Dry the zucchini pieces with paper towels so they're good and dry.  Dip a small handful of the fries at a time, first in the egg, then coat well in the breadcrumb mixture.  (Use only a few Tb of the breadcrumb mixture at a time so it doesn't beccome saturated with egg.  Add more to the plate as you need it.)  Place the coated fries on the baking sheet and spray the tops with cooking spray to help them crisp.  Bake 10-12 minutes, flip and bake another 10-12 minutes.
