Hi friends!

Remember that giant zucchini I told you about?

Giant Zuchini

Well… my plant did very well this year and just kept producing squash!  So needless to say I’ve had to get pretty creative with ways to cook both the zucchini and the patty pan squash.  Since this particular zucchini was SOOOOO big I decided it would make great crispy, parmesan covered Oven Baked Zucchini Fries.

To make ’em special I served them with my Greek Yogurt Ranch dip from Tuesday.

I mean look how perfect it worked out!  I got these perfect “fries” and only used half of that thing.  Sigh… 😉

It takes a couple steps to get these oven baked zucchini fries coated and crispy, but it’s really pretty simple.

You start by coating them in flour.

Next you do an assembly line dunking them in egg and then a seasoned panko and parmesan mixture.

The trick is to use a wire cooling rack to bake them on so the air circulates around them.  It keep the fries from getting soggy.

To get the golden brown color you pop the broiler on for a quick minute or two “tanning” session.

The finished product is super tasty, no-guilt crispy “fries!”

My Greek Yogurt Ranch dip is made with pantry friendly ingredients too.

The finished product is not only a great unique way to use up all those zucchini, but something totally crave worthy any time of year.  It’s a wonderful, low-carb way to feel like you are eating fries while still getting a nutrient rich side dish.

Don’t ya just want to dunk one?  I DO!

Author: Julie Wunder
Ingredients
  • 1 pound zucchini
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup panko
  • 1/4 cup parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 recipe
    Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing
  • cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Cut your zucchini into long fries. You want them around a 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Place the zucchini in a ziplock bag with the flour, salt and pepper. Coat well.
  3. Set up a station with two flat bottomed dishes. One will have the panko, parmesan and Italian seasoning mixed together well. The other will have the egg and water, beaten together.
  4. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  5. Spray a wire rack with cooking spray. Place it on a baking sheet.
  6. One at a time take each zucchini piece out of the flour bag and dunk in the egg. Make sure it's coated well and then dunk in the panko mixture. Coat the zucchini completely and move it to the wire wrack. Do the rest of the bag in the same way, making sure the individual zucchini fries have space between them on the rack.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn up the broiler and broil for another few minutes, just until crispy brown! Watch carefully!
  8. Serve with the Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip.

    These look so good right now I could eat them for breakfast! We are up at my parents for the week and she has a lot of zucchini she wants to cook up and I brought some. I’m going to check her cupboards and hope she has some panko bread crumbs so we can make these.
    Thank you for linking up with us for Meatless Monday Julie!

    Haha I love that you call the broiler a tanning session, that’s a perfect analogy. And I have been wanting to make zucchini fries for awhile not, these would go perfect with that dressing, my mouth is watering!

    Yes, please!! I love zucchini fries, even more so when they are baked. I also like to make baked zucchini chips with the same type of coating – it’s way to easy to pop them all in your mouth. 🙂

    I really wish we had of grown some courgettes this year, as everyone seems to be having a bumper year with them. This is the perfect way to use them too, especially with that dip!

    How long in the oven Julie? Temperature? These look fantastic! What you really need are a couple chickens. My chickens love the extra squash that everyone is trying to get rid of about now?

      425 degrees. 15 mins– turn up broiler to get them brown at the end.

    You can never have too much zucchini. I’m going to be so sad when summer is over and we are back to the zucchini desert!

      Oh I know… heaven forbid you want zoodles in December!
