I love my summer vegetable garden. Tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and summer squash grow best during long, warm summer days. Because zucchini grow quickly and yield many, many squash, you usually only need one or two plants. The funny thing is my son Jeff went a little crazy this year for Mothers Day and planted 5 zucchini plants for me. Look out! So now I have tons of these lovely green veggies piling up on my kitchen counters.
What to do? You guessed it! Its zucchini fry recipe time. And here’s my new favorite. Oven-Baked Zucchini Fries. I made this last night and there wasn’t a zucchini fry left on the plate! This was quick, easy, nutritious and delicious!
• 3 medium zucchini (1 pound)
• 1 packet Shake and Bake™ Coating mix (found in the baking section of grocery store)
• 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
• 1 egg
Step 1: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray vegetable oil on a large baking sheet and set aside.
Step 2: Cut the zucchini into 1/4 inch thick, 4 inch slices. Should look just like fries.
