Breaded strips of zucchini get baked in the oven until crispy in this recipe for zucchini fries that are better than take out.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Lightly coat 2 rimmed baking sheets with cooking spray. In a wide, shallow dish, mix together panko, Parmesan, Italian seasoning, cayenne, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In a medium bowl, lightly beat egg whites.

  • Working with one at a time, dip zucchini wedges in egg whites, then breadcrumb mixture, pressing to adhere. Arrange on sheets in a single layer. Bake until coating is golden brown and crisp, 20 minutes, flipping zucchini and rotating sheets halfway through. Season to taste with salt and pepper; serve immediately.

Made this for the first time today. Turned out great! I read the reviews and saw that people had a hard time with the breading sticking. Watch the video. Do it exactly like she does and it will work!

I also had a hard time getting the panko and parmesan to stick. So I read the reviews, and saw that lots of others experienced the same issue, and using flour before the egg white was the solution. Unfortunately, the panko was completely soggy at that point. Fail.

Very disappointed with the recipe - a waste of parmesan cheese and panko crumbs! Watched the video and nothing was said about the coating not sticking, which was my experience. Next time I will use some flour - hopefully the results will be better.

Yes, I like to dip them in flour first, also.

I love these! It feeds my fried zucchini cravings with a lot less guilt. I do dredge them in flour first, then the egg. I find they get crispier that way. Great dipped in a little ranch. Thanks EDF!

Even though the zucchini wedges were dipped in egg whites, I had a problem getting the panko crumbs to stick....they kept sliding off. Would like to hear from others who tried this recipe. The wedges were tasty but would have been crispier if more of the crumbs had adhered.
