Crispy on the outside and tender in the middle, these are a really delicious way to serve zucchini. Pair with a favorite dipping sauce to make them even yummier.
– Zucchini – All-purpose flour – Panko-style Italian-flavored breadcrumbs – Parmesan cheese – Eggs – Ketchup, sour cream, warmed marinara sauce or pizza sauce or other desired dip
Trim the ends off of the zucchini. Cut into finger-size sticks, about ½ inch thick. Rest onto a paper towel while you do the next two steps.
Add the eggs to a wide shallow bowl and beat lightly with a fork. Add the flour, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and salt to a separate wide shallow bowl. Mix lightly.
Working with a few at a time, add the zucchini to the eggs. Turn to coat, then lift out with a fork. Transfer into the flour mixture and turn to coat. Place onto the baking sheet and repeat.
Spray with olive oil spray, optional. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Serve warm with desired dip.
You can also cook in an Air Fryer at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. These are best served right after making.
