About the Recipe
3-4 med. zucchini 1 Tbsp. salt
Cut each zucchini into 3" Pieces. Then cut each 3"piece into 9 sticks
lengthwise (tic tac toe pattern). Next, place the zucchini sticks in a
colander over a bowl, and sprinkle with 1 tbs. salt. Let them
drain for 1 hour or longer to release as much liquid as possible. Rinse
them thoroughly' you want to get rid of any excess salt. Then pat
Creating the zucchini sticks
1 cup Panko bread crumbs 1 Tbsp. mixed Italian herbs (pizza
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan seasoning)
cheese 2 eggs
First, preheat the oven to 425 F°. Line a baking sheet with parchment,.
and spray the parchment with olive oil. Next in a shallow dish, mix
crumbs, cheese and herbs until thoroughly combined. Set aside. In a
different container, beat 2 large eggs. Dip each zucchini stick in the
egg, then roll it in the crumbs. Warning: Resist the urge to coat all the
zucchini sticks at the same time; bread crumb mixture will clump
together. Next, place the sticks on the prepared baking sheet. Finally,
bake the sticks for about 10 to 12 minutes, until they are starting to brown.
Remove from oven, and turn them over; you may actually need to
do this one by one, or you may be able to turn several at a time using
a spatula. Bake for an additional 10 - 12 minutes or until golden brown
and crisp. Serve with ranch or your favorite dipping sauce.
