Zucchini Fries...

We have been blessed with many zucchini from our garden this year. I have already made several loaves of zucchini bread and have sauteed zucchini about every other night for the past couple of weeks....so needless to say we are ready for some new recipes. I found this one for zucchini fries on weightwatchers.com and tried it last night. Definitely something that will be on the menu again!


4 spray(s) olive oil cooking spray

1 tsp Italian seasoning

1 1/2 tbsp all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp table salt

3/4 cup(s) dried bread crumbs, panko-variety suggested

2 medium zucchini, about 7-inches each, cut into 4 chunks, then each chunk halved

2 large egg white(s), whipped until frothy (almost soft peaks)

Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix together Italian seasoning, flour and salt. Place bread crumbs in another small bowl.

Dredge a zucchini fry in flour mixture and then dip into egg whites; dredge in bread crumbs. Place coated zucchini on prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining ingredients; liberally coat with cooking spray.

Roast, turning once, until desired crispness, about 12 minutes. Yields about 8 fries per serving.
