Baked Zucchini Sticks

We LOVE Zucchini!! It’s no secret at our house, especially because we buy it ALL the time! It’s one of those versatile veggies that you can make several side dishes with and can even throw it into dessert to make you feel like it’s somewhat healthy. 😉 I’ve shared in the past how we make Fried Zucchini and Parmesan Crusted Zucchini, but today I wanted to share a recipe for Crusted Baked Zucchini Fries.

They only require a handful of ingredients and about 15 minutes of prep work, and let me tell you, they are SO good and crunchy. It’s a great side dish with any meal – especially an Italian dish or even Roast or Steak. We had these zucchini sticks last week with pasta and they were gone in no time. We sometimes serve these as an appetizer with Homemade Ranch dressing or marinara sauce, but they are great on their own too!

How to make Zucchini Fries:

We love that these are so simple!! Here is all you have to do…

  1. Begin by cutting your zucchinis into spears. Then rinse, and let dry.
  2. In a Ziploc bag, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, and seasonings, and mix.
  3. From there you will whisk the eggs in a bowl. Place a few zucchini sticks into the eggs and coat them well.
  4. Then place in the ziploc back and shake around until they are totally covered with the seasonings.
  5. Continue this step with the remaining zucchini sticks and bake for about 16-20 minutes.

So easy, right?! And we must note that they are served best fresh. Just like our fried zucchini, these kinds of recipes are best served right out of the oven or pan. But trust me, we think you’ll agree and love how simple these are to make.

  1. I think you read my mind today. I just got some zucchini the other day and have been craving some breaded zucchini. I may be making these tonight with our anniversary dinner. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. I love zucchini and all these recipes sound delicious! We usually just marinate our zucchini in a robust italian dressing and then grill it. It is a favorite. Thanks for the recipes!!
