Zucchini fries are another way to use up some of your garden squash.  I like them with salsa as a snack or as a side dish with any meal. The Parmesan cheese adds a great flavor to this vegetable and baking makes them a little more healthy than frying.  We like this dish for a change and I make them quite often in summer.  This makes a good appetizer and a great addition to any buffet table. We enjoy growing this vegetable in our garden every summer and there are lots of ways to use it and many different recipes you can make with it.  Add this recipe to your collection for future use!

3 medium zucchini, unpeeled

1 cup plain bread crumbs

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated or the kind in the green box. (I have used both)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

2 eggs

1/2 cup buttermilk (could use regular milk)

Cooking spray

Cut zucchini in half crosswise and then cut lengthwise into pieces like fries.  Combine bread crumbs, cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl or shallow dish.  Beat eggs and milk together.  Dip zucchini pieces in egg and milk then dredge in crumbs.  Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.  Place fries on sheet and spray the fries with cooking spray.  Bake in preheated 400 degree oven 35 to 30 minutes until brown and crusty.  Turn if needed.  Makes about six servings.  Enjoy!
