Ingredients

  • 2 large fresh zucchini squash
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt and ground black pepper to preference

Instructions

  • Begin the recipe by cleaning the zucchini and cutting it into the shape of fries or wedges. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the 1 large egg and 1 tablespoon water.
  • In a separate small bowl, combine 1 cup panko breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon dried basil, 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, salt,  and ground black pepper (to preference).
  • Dip the zucchini fries in the egg mixture until evenly coated, then toss the zucchini fries in the panko and Parmesan mixture until evenly coated.
  • Place on the prepared baking sheet. Continue this process until all of the zucchini fries are finished.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, turning the zucchini halfway through the baking process.
  • Continue baking until the crust looks crispy and golden brown. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Pair with your favorite creamy dipping sauce.
  • Try mixing together 1 ½-cup plain Greek yogurt with a package of dry ranch seasoning mix.
