Oven Fried Zucchini Fries.

You had to know zucchini recipes would be popping up and here one is! These were super tasty and are best served right from the oven with some marinara to dip them in. I will admit that they are a little time consuming, but you won't regret the time spent. Plus, they are easier than the other zucchini fries that require frying.

Oven Fried Zucchini Fries

2 small/medium sized zucchini - cut into wedges
2 eggs - beaten
1 cup italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Combine bread crumbs, cheese, and seasonings into shallow bowl. Dip zucchini wedges into egg mixture - covering completely - followed by coating with crumb mixture. Place on baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Once sheet is filled, spray the top of wedges with cooking spray. Bake for 12 minutes in a 400 degree oven. Turn oven to broil and allow fries to crisp for 1 minute. Cool slightly and devour!

These made a tasty appetizer to go with our brats and burgers the other night! Head out to your garden or local farmer's market and grab some zucchini. You won't be disappointed!
