Baked Zucchini Fries

                                   Baked Parmesan Zucchini Fries

I had two really large zucchini sitting on the counter, trying to decide if I was going to make the old zucchini-bread stand by. I was really not in the mood for that today. So I decided to play around with different variation of zucchini fries. They were all really good, so I decided to post them all.
The method is the same for them all, just different spice variations.

Parmesan Fries:
Pre-heat oven to 425*
Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray
2eggs beaten
zucchini cut into strips 
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2Tbl. Parmesan cheese
1/2tsp. garlic powder
1tsp. basil
1/2tsp. salt
1cup flour

Whisk the eggs in a large bowl, set aside.
In another bowl mix together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, garlic powder, basil, and salt.
Place the zucchini in a third bowl, add the flour and toss to coat.
Shake off any excess flour, and toss them in the beaten egg, to coat.
Roll the strips one at a time in the breadcrumb mixture, and place them on the cookie sheet.
Bake about 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve alone or with a dipping sauce, I like to use ranch dressing.

                Remove the seeds from the zucchini and slice into strips.

I thought I'd make it a little easier and toss the strips in a bowl with 1cup of flour. Worked well.

Then toss them in the bowl of beaten eggs, you will have to roll them one at a time in the breadcrumb mixture. Place them on a cookie sheet and bake.
