"These aren't really like French fries because the zucchini really can't become crispy in the oven, but they're still delicious!"

I made a couple tweaks that took this to a 5 star for me. I sliced the zucchini into thin round slices. I put the slices in a large ziplock and added about 2 tbs of olive oil shaking vigorously to coat. I combined 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs, about 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp dried basil, and about 1/4 tsp black pepper and added this mixture to the bag, shaking to coat all the slices. Then I baked for about 25 minutes, sprinkled Parmesan cheese over the top and set on a low broil to crisp them up. Yum!

These were good! Mine came out pretty soggy/mushy, but I can't really fault the recipe b/c I did cut the pieces bigger than stated, so maybe if the pieces were smaller they would have been a bit crispier. I tossed the zucchini in a bowl w/ the olive oil (I used evoo), salt and pepper, and threw in a little garlic powder too. After they were coated, I rolled them into the breadcrumbs, and put them on the baking sheet. The flavor was nice, and I plan to try them again, cutting them the right way, lol. Thanks for sharing. :)

Used the advice MrsHess said, including broiling for a few minutes. They were good, but there's nothing like lightly breaded fried zucchini:) dipped in Ranch dressing.
