Fried Zucchini Sticks

It’s Farmer’s Market and produce stand season. And, it’s kind of nice to have two younger siblings working full-time at a huge and renowned produce stand. So, we get a ton of fresh produce, jams, honey, etc from them! It’s awesome! Less for us to buy. So, we decided to make some zucchini sticks this time.

Delicoius, fast snack. Zucchini sticks are healthy, but still have that fried taste. Better than breadsticks or french fries!

** Serves 2 as a snack or appetizer

Ingredients
2 medium sized zucchinis
1/4 bread crumbs
1/4 Parmesan and Asiago
Italian seasoning
garlic salt
1 egg
3 tbsp milk

Directions
1) Use a peeler and cut the skins off. Cut them in half long-ways. Cut long-ways into strips.
2) Put some oil in a pan on medium.
3) Mix the egg and milk together in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the crumbs, Parmesan, seasoning, and garlic.
4) Dip the zucchini sticks in the egg and milk mix, then coat it with the breading.
5) Place in the pan and fry, rotating them until all sides are brown and crispy.
6) Serve with some sauce–I used marinara with garlic salt and basil.

**Also, if you want it healthier, just bake in the oven at 350* for about 25 minutes rather than frying it.

  • First of all – how awesome that you get so much free produce!
    Second, these look and sound amazing. I love zucchini, and often make zucchini bread, but just may have to make these the next time I get my hands on some zucchini!
