  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil lightly greased with cooking spray.
  2. Cut the peeled zucchini in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Slice the zucchini ito 1/2 x 1/2 x 4 inch pieces.
  3. Combine the bread crumbs, cheese, and seasoned salt in a pie plate. Dip the zucchini fries into the melted margarine, then press into bread crumbs. Gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Place the breaded zucchini onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake the zucchini in the preheated oven until the fries are golden and tender, about 15 minutes.

These were super! In the interest of health I did not use melted butter, but used Olive Oil instead...the coating adhered to the oil and they baked very quickly, with a great flavor. thanks

This recipe is a fun way to use zucchini. However, the breading on was a little overpowering. If I try this again I will REALLY shake off the excess coating (had I coated the fries less I would have rated this recipe higher). I didn't have Italian seasoned bread crumbs so I used regular and added italian seasoning. I used 3 zucchini's so tripled the recipe to have enough mixture. I would recommend adding the breading mixture to pie plate as needed. the butter/marg makes it clumpy so the final fries are hard to coat. I also made the Garlic Ailoli and added roasted red pepper for dipping.

Okay, so I modified the recipe, but they were still delicious! I used my own breadcrumbs, added some onion powder and italian seasoning to the dry mix, and instead of egg, I used 1 T.avocado oil and 1 T apple cider vinegar to dip the zucchini in. It took about 30 minutes for them to cook- I cooked them about 10 min. on broil after the original time so they would be crispy. My daughter LOVED them! I will be making these again- they were so much more enjoyable than frying them!

This is absolutely fantastic! I love the deep-fried zucchini you get at some restaurants, but some places make it too greasy. This is so much better. I used panko bread crumbs, and to dip I made garlic aioli from another recipe on this site. No trouble eating up the zucchini neighbors leave on my porch! ;-)

Nice alternative to traditional fries. I used egg white instead of butter to dip the zucchini into before adding the crumb coating. This worked very well for me, and the coating stuck really well. This also cut down on the fat and calories to make this a reasonably healthy side dish. I also chose not to peel my zucchini. My kids preferred theirs dipped in ranch, but my husband and I enjoyed these as is.

An excellent recipe! I took the advice of another reviewer and coated them in egg white instead of butter. I cooked them 5 minutes each side at 450, then broiled 2 minutes each side. They came our crispy and delicious!

I just love these! They're really good and just about the only way I can get my husband to eat zucchini. I've made them several times, but this last time I used panko bread crumbs and seasoned them myself. I also used olive oil. Delicious! I dip them in ketchup but my husband likes them in honey mustard. I bet some ranch dressing would be tasty for a dip, too! Great way to eat up all the zucchini my mom is giving me from her garden. And since they're healthier than your normal fries, I'm calling them Bikini Zucchini Fries!

Yum! I used 2 garden fresh zucchini, and left the skin on. I made my own bread crumbs with some stale whole wheat bread & used my homemade italian seasoning. Didn't use that much butter & threw in some of my low sodium cajun seasoning. My husband thought they needed to cook a bit longer, but I thought they were good. Thanks!
