Ingredients

  • 3 medium zucchini cut in sticks
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs I used Panko
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
  • Ranch dressing optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • I used 3 medium zucchini which i cut in half, then cut each half in half lengthwise,then each quarter in half again, so you end up with 8 sticks from one zucchini.
  • Beat the egg in a shallow plate. Season the egg with salt and pepper. In another shallow plate mix the Panko breadcrumbs together with the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Dip each zucchini stick in the egg wash, then roll through the breadcrumb mixture, making sure each stick is fully covered with the breadcrumbs.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
