It's no secret that I love zucchini, I always request it when we are at a restaurant that serves them as appetizers, and whenever I get the chance to make them at home, I do.
Luckily for me, my kids LOVE zucchini as much as I do and there's usually fighting over who gets the last piece.
I've posted a Fried Zucchini version on the blog before, but I also like baking it which is much healthier......even though honestly, fried is so much more delicious, but that is a whole other topic.
Try these next time you have Zucchini laying around, your kids might even enjoy it as much as mine do.
Baked Zucchini Sticks
Zucchini, sliced into sticks
salt and pepper
This is so easy, it's pretty much the same as if you were making the fried zucchini just that you pop it into the oven.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a deep bowl mix the breadcrumbs, salt and pepper, garlic powder and parmesan cheese. Dip the sticks into beaten egg, then into the breadcrumb mixture.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the zucchini sticks onto the parchment, then bake for about 25 minutes or until nice and brown.
Serve with some ranch or whatever else you wish. :)
