Baked Zucchini Fries Recipe

It seems like the older my little boy gets, the pickier he becomes!  He use to eat any fruit or vegetable I put in front of him and now I have to beg him to eat a bite or two.  I thought maybe I could trick him into eating a few more veggies by making them fun and “dippable.”
He loved these zucchini fries!

    3. Instead of bread crumbs, I grind up a mix of almonds and pumpkin seeds into a fine meal. Sometimes I add some McCormick Italian Spices so it tastes like the bread crumbs you buy in a store.

      Calories are about the same, but the fiber/carb content is much better, as well the amount of protein & nutrition delivered.

      Plus, I like the more 'buttery' taste the combo of almonds + pepitas adds.
    4. Ok, so I thought these would taste at least a little bit like zucchini, but I cut them pretty thin and OMG, they were amazing! I used them as a side dish with portobello mushroom burgers (I don't remember where I picked up that recipe, might have been here?). We invited my boyfriend's friend over for dinner that night and I'll tell ya, these two manly men didn't miss the meat one bit. I did break the rules though and basically dumped a bunch of the zucchini in the panko/parm mix after letting the egg wash drip and mine turned out fine.
    5. I made these tonight and they were so good! I was lazy and dipped them all in the eggs and then the bread crumbs at once. They weren't perfectly coated, but they tasted great anyway. I also used freshly grated Parmesan cheese. It worked great. Thanks for the fun recipe!
