As y'all probably all know, Pinterest has taken me captive. It has a hold of me and won't let go. I have found a few yummy looking recipes that I pinned. Included in those recipes is this amazing recipe that I just have to share with my blog friends. Zucchini fries...and lemme tell ya, they are amazing!
Here is the recipe I found from Pinterest and I slightly adapted it to make it gluten free for me.
Baked Zucchini Fries
About 1 lb. zucchini
1/2 c. Italian-seasoned panko bread crumbs (I used what I had available - Gluten Free Crispy Chicken Coating Mix. You could use any sort of gluten free bread crumbs. )
I added about 1 tbsp of onion powder, 1 tbsp. garlic salt and 2 tbsp. of Cajun Italian Seasoning we just picked up on our New Orleans trip.
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese (the crumbly stuff, not shreds)
Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Set aside.
Whisk 2 eggs together in a shallow pie plate and set aside.
Cut the ends off the zucchini and then cut the zucchini in half so you have two short, stubby pieces. Set one piece on its end and cut it in half lengthwise. Cut that half in half, making 2 planks. Repeat with the remaining halves (so you’ll get 16 planks per zucchini).
