Home Sides Baked Zucchini Fries

Baked Zucchini Fries

by Laura

Zucchini is taking the form of fries today.  Even better is that they are baked zucchini fries.  These fries get a nice crunch breading on them.

I loved the idea of using a packet of Shake and Bake as part of the coating.   I don’t really know if it matters, but I used the pork variety. The zucchini first gets a coating in flour. Then, you coat them in an water/egg mixture. Last, is the crunchy coating made with Shake and Bake, Parmesan cheese, and salt .  

These were quite yummy. You can dip these baked zucchini fries in ranch dressing or marinara sauce. Either one is great.

I make the fries every summer but use a packet of dry italian dressing seasoning and mix it with breadcrumbs in place of the shake and bake. I’m going to try it with shake and bake next time. Sounds really good.

I saw a recipe for zucchini chips too, but I think I’ll start with this one. The fries sound much more fun!
@Heather: I have some baskets like that, which I found at TJ Maxx last summer. They were selling red and yellow baskets and are fabulous!! The kids love getting to use them!!

Those look amazing. I have done the zucchini fried chips, but never thought to do sticks “fries”. Definitely going to try these next sloppy joe night we have.

I love that this uses the shake and bake, since it not your typical breading seen in most recipes. I’ve done zucchini ‘chips’ before and used crushed pretzels and they were fabulous!
Oh and where did you get that red basket in your picture? I have been looking for some baskets like that everywhere and can’t find any!
