• 2 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch x 3-inch sticks
  • 1 large egg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Generously spray a sheet tray with cooking spray.
  2. In a shallow bowl, lightly beat the egg with 1 teaspoon water, a pinch of salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. In a another bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Dip zucchini fries into egg mixture. Shake to remove excess egg, then generously coat in the breadcrumb mixture. Transfer the breaded zucchini to a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in oven for 12 to 13 minutes. Place under broiler for 1 minute. Remove from oven. Place on platter and serve warm.
