  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Season zucchini pieces with salt.
  3. Mix panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning in a bowl.
  4. Dip zucchini pieces into the beaten eggs and then press into bread crumbs to coat; gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Arrange breaded zucchini onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
  5. Bake zucchini in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Yum! I used seasoned panko crumbs and just a sprinkle of Italian seasoning and garlic powder. I didn't think these were gonna turn out as good/crispy as they were. A great new way to enjoy zucchini...and it's healthy too!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)

To our surprise, these were fantastic! They were very flavorful and nice and crispy. I used two larger zucchini and baked for 15 minutes at 425 on the lower oven rack. I used about 2/3rds a cup of Panko but kept the cheese and seasoning amounts the same (and ended up with enough left over for another zucchini). I used a Cajun seasoning blend instead of Italian since we had a spicy spinach and feta turkey burger with them but am sure the Italian would be just as tasty. We will definitely have again.

used this recipe on zucchini and eggplant == think next time I may add dry ranch dressing mix for additional flavor

I liked this recipe and would make it again. I used two store bought average-size zucchini instead of three and had plenty of fries for my husband and I. I salted the zucchini before breading. However, I did not have regular Italian seasoning on hand so I used salt-free Italian seasoning. This may have been why the zucchini fries did not seem quite salty enough for my taste. The next time I make this recipe, I will try using regular Italian seasoning or use Panko bread crumbs with Italian seasoning added. I think a little garlic powder would also add additional flavor.
