Zucchini Fries!

These fries are SO good! I wish I had made more but I only made a little because I didn’t want to use up the last egg (although now that I think about it, I don’t know why I felt that way since I could just go buy some more tomorrow). I ate them warm and toasty out of the oven with some barbeque sauce and they were delicious.

Baked Zucchini Fries

3 medium zucchini,  sliced into skinny sticks
  2 large egg whites, beaten
  1/2 cup bread crumbs
  2 T grated Parmesan cheese
  1/4 tsp dried basil*
  Pinch of dried oregano*
  1/4 tsp garlic powder
  Salt and pepper, to taste

*I just sprinkled a whole bunch of the Italian Seasoning mix that I had into the mix.

Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a small bowl, beat egg whites with a fork until frothy.

Put the breadcrumbs, basil, oregano, garlic powder and cheese on a plate. Mix  well.

Dip the zucchini sticks in the egg whites and then into the bread crumb mixture, make sure all sides get coated well. Place the sticks on the prepared baking sheet. 

Bake at 425° for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and a little crispy. Serve warm.
