Parmesan Zucchini Straws

One of my favorite summer time veggies is zucchini. You can find it every where and chances are, if your neighbor has a garden, they'll be more then happy to share the abundance of zucchini the crop normally produces. Like most squash, zucchini is very versatile. It can be grilled, sautéed, put into baked goods or even fried. In fact, growing up my father loved fried zucchini and honestly so did I. This recipe is reminiscent of the fried version but is baked and has much more flavor. What's even better is that my daughter loved it too!!

What You Need:

1 lrg zucchini
2 eggs
2 tbs milk
1 c flour
3/4 c panko bread crumbs
3/4 c Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
1 tbs garlic powder
Cooking Spray

What To Do:

Preheat your oven to 450 degree

Slice the zucchini into sticks that are 4 or 5 inches in long. I cut the zucchini in half and then into sticks.
Set up 3 dishes. In the first dish, place the flour and season it with some salt and pepper. In the second dish, whisk together the eggs and milk and in the last dish combined the panko with the Parmesan cheese and garlic powder.
All you do is coat the sticks with flour, tapping of the excess before dipping them into the egg and finally into the bread crumbs.Place them in a single layer on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Give the tops a spray with the cooking spray as well and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
