Baked Zucchini Sticks

I found this recipe at For the Love of Cooking and I'll definitely be making these again! Easy, delicious, and healthier than the fried version!

Baked Zucchini Sticks

2 large zucchini
2 eggs
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of dried basil
Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil or wax paper - spray with cooking spray. Cut the zucchini into half lengthwise then into thick spears. Combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and seasonings then mix thoroughly. Dip the spears into egg then bread crumbs and Parmesan mixture, making sure to coat evenly. Place on baking sheet and spray the top of each spear with cooking spray. Bake for 10-12 minutes then turn the oven to broil and cook, watching carefully, until they become golden brown 45-60 seconds. Serve with marinara sauce or your favorite salad dressing. Enjoy!

These look delightful, and a little more healthy than my usual love for fried zucchini. Can't wait to make them!

I have tried fried zucchini more times that you can imagine. It NEVER turns out, so I'm happy to know this turned out well. Much easier and less messy!!!!
