Growing up, we had a Fry Baby and then one year my mom upgraded to a Fry Daddy. Oh how I loved to fry all kinds of morsels in that thing. Nowadays they have all kinds of fry "contraptions". In fact Paula Deen has, not one, but TWO fry baskets built right into her counter. I would love to get myself a fryer but I risk gaining 30 lbs with that sucker so I opt not to fry anything in my house. I made Parmesan chicken fingers in the oven a while back so I figured doing that to any type of veggie would work just as good and it did. This zucchini was delicious. They were really crunchy and had about a million less calories than their fried counterpart. I didn't have any marinara sauce so I whipped me up some spicy creamy dip. It was okay but next time I will serve these with marinara for sure.
Oven Fried Parmesan Zucchini
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs (I used whole wheat)
1/2 cup Parmesan
2 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Salt or to taste
1/2 tsp Pepper or to taste
1 or 2 Eggs
Cut your veggies up, into spears or circles, whatever you prefer.
Lightly beat an egg and put in a shallow bowl. Mix together your breadcrumbs, parmesan, oregano, salt and pepper and place in a shallow bowl.
1. Dip your zucchini into the egg.
2. Roll your zucchini in the breadcrumb mixture.
3. Place onto a greased cooking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.
