    Zuchinnie Fries

    While watching Rachel Ray I saw her making these then got busy and did not get the whole recipe.. But here is what I do. Since we have an abundance of zucchinni right now this is a good and heathly way to eat them

    2 Med zucchinni cut in half long ways and and scoop out the seed, then cut in half the other way and cut into strips about the size of a french fry
    Dip in egg white, takes about 2
    Roll in Panko bread crumbs, season with salt pepper and a little garlic salt
    Place on a a parchment covered cookie sheet
    Bake at 400 for about 20 mins

    We use light Honey Dijon Mustard salad dressing to dip them in. You could use ranch or any one that you like, or they are good just plain

    Yummy, my husband love them

    Thanks for this recipe. I usually just cut into rounds and saute in a little olive oil until slightly crisp. But this looks easy and quite tasty.

    These are great !! Yummy. We do this and make a "fry sauce". To make the fry sauce , just blend real mayo and ketchup to get the taste ya like. I usually add equal parts. Sometimes I make a quart jar and just leave in the fridge. Yummy. One of our missionaries from Utah taught us this .

    My family is in love with squash patties. You can use squash or zucchini. With onions, cornbread, egg. I freeze a whole bunch and then get out a few at a time to cook. Gotta love summer harvest!!!!

    Oh my....these are so good. The four zucchini bushes are going wild with 2 days of 80 degrees weather. (the temps in NW Washington have been in the 60's so, yes we are a bit wimpy at higher temps.) This recipe is perfect for those zukes that suddenly are larger than baseball bats. I used one of those overgrown monsters last night and DH was hoping I would make more after he inhaled a large cookie sheet of the "fries". I used a whole egg instead of just whites - worked fine. Remember to season with the salt, pepper and especially the garlic powder or the "fries" are bland. Next time I'll use seasoned salt for an extra flavor boost.

    I have one of those fry cutter things.. where you put in the veggie and press down and it shoots out nice fat uniform fries.. and I had never seen fried zucchini before but suddenly had a craving that plagued me for weeks.. so I looked up a recipe.. well.. a basically how to.. mainly for cook time cause i know how to bread stuff.. I had some garlic herb bread crumbs so I used that and dipped in ranch and i am sooo in love with eating those!

    I'm with you! Whole egg and Italian or seasoned bread crumbs. My poor mom spent a long time frying these as slices, but with 6 kids they were eaten as soon as they came out of the pan- rarely made it to the platter! Using the oven is a lot healthier, and much less mess. I make eggplant rounds the same way.
