BAKED ZUCCHINI FRIES

There are many recipes for zucchini bites.  They’re all pretty similar. But I made some to go with dinner a few nights ago and they were pretty great.  So I want to write what I did down.

  • 2 Zucchinis, I used one yellow and one green
  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten with a teaspoon of water
  • 2 oz finely ground Almonds
  • 2 oz Bread Crumbs
  • 2 oz grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • Ground Pepper to Taste
  • 2 Pinches Oregano
  • Cooking Spray

Preheat the oven to 450 degree.  Cut the zucchini into 4″ long wedges.  Toss with a little bit of salt and set aside to sweat for about 20 minutes.  Rinse the salt off, and dry on a paper towel.  Mix the finely ground almond, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and oregano together in a wide-based bowl or dish.

Dip the zucchini in the egg wash, and then gently roll the zucchini in the crumb mixture.  Place on a lined or greased baking sheet.  I then sprayed the top lightly with cooking spray to help it brown a little.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes.  Turn them over, and continue baking for an additional five to eight minutes.
