3zucchinis(mine were medium sized)
Salt and pepper(to taste)
¼cupgrated Parmesan cheese(the powder kind, not freshly shredded)
non-stick cooking spray(canola oil, olive oil, or butter flavor will work)
Cut the ends of each zucchini. Then cut each zucchini into half (length wise), then cut each piece in half again so that you have 4 long wedges. Cut each wedge in half so that you have 8 wedges total that are equal in size and width (each about 3 inches long). Set aside.
Spray the bottom of the air fryer pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Pull out 3 small mixing bowls. In the first bowl, mix together flour, garlic powder, and salt and pepper.
In the second bowl, beat the eggs.
In the third bowl, mix together the panko breadcrumbs, regular breadcrumbs, and Parmesan cheese. You can also add salt and pepper if desired.
Working with just a few zucchini pieces at a time, dip each zucchini in the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and then the breadcrumb mixture.
Place the breaded zucchini in the bottom of an air fryer pan (I had to do 2 batches because I had so much zucchini).
Set air fryer for 375 degrees.
Cook for 15 minutes, flipping zucchini half way through cooking time (right around 8 minutes).
Remove zucchini and enjoy! We love to dip these in ranch or marinara sauce.
When it comes to cooking in an air fryer, you want to make sure to cook things in a single layer so that everything can crisp evenly.
