Zucchini Fries

Zucchini FriesI first saw a recipe for zucchini fries on Macaroni and Cheesecake, then days later I saw it on Confections of a Foodie Bride. It was a sign. Anything made with Panko is always delicious. I never bought Panko much because of the price. Then my friend Courtney told me that Panko was always a steal at the Foodarama. She has tipped me off to so many good prices there (20 limes for $1). So Panko has become more of a staple around here and I couldn't be happier. C ate every single one of these. Which absolutely floored me considering he pushed all the zucchini off of Chicken Bruschetta. I guess he selectively likes zucchini. Any other ideas of veggies to cover in Panko and bake?
Zucchini Fries

¼ cup whole wheat flour
1 egg
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
Salt
Pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
dash cayenne pepper
2 zucchini, cut into 5” strips

Preheat oven to 425 and grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.  Place flour in a large zipper bag. Whisk eggs with 2 tablespoons water and place in a shallow dish. Place Panko, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper in a shallow dish and mix to combine. Place zucchini in the bag with the flour and shake until well coated. Dip the zucchini into the egg and then into the Panko, turning to coat well. Place breaded zucchini on the greased baking sheet. Bake 18-20 minutes, until golden brown.

Love zucchini fries! I like the addition of panko instead of plain breadcrumbs-it makes the fries look even better!

i agree that panko is the shiznat. you can bread just about anything in the stuff.

you should try your local farmer's market for inspiration (and advice from the producers themselves) about what else you could bread!

what about some delicious local cheese?? or squash blossoms! oh!! or beets!

Yours look great! So glad you liked them! Loving the idea of green bean fries!

If you add a little bit of buttermilk to the egg, it seems to help the breading stay on a lot better. Also, i like to add a little bit of regular breadcrumbs to the panko to add more seasoning and to cover more of the item.
