Crispy, oven baked zucchini sticks will make you forget about that French potato thing.

Ingredients

  • 1/2  Cup  Seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 4  Tablespoons  Freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  Garlic powder
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  Oregano
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  Basil
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  Parsely
  • Medium zucchini
  • 1/4  Cup  Milk
  • Eggs
  • 1  Cup  Marinara sauce, for dipping
  • Ball Park hot dog buns

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Place bread crumbs, cheeses, garlic powder, oregano, basil, and parsley in Ziploc bag; shake well to combine. Set aside.

Cut each zucchini lengthwise into 8 pieces, then cut each piece in half.

Beat egg and milk in a shallow bowl. Dip each piece of zucchini in egg mixture then bread crumb mixture.

Repeat until all of the sticks are coated; place them on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until brown and tender. Serve with marinara sauce. Create veggie sandwiches by placing the prepared zucchini sticks and sauce into a Ball Park hot dog bun, cole slaw from above recipe, and top with melted cheese.
