{Recipes}: Baked Zucchini Fries and Pizza Sauce

My dad and I’s garden had a giant zucchini and I was trying to find a recipe other than my go to zucchini bread for it. I stumbled across not only a delish BAKED zucchini fries (I love the fried kind too), but this pizza sauce to dip it in is also the best pizza sauce for homemade pizzas I’ve had in a long time! I used the extra sauce for a different meal of pizza with zucchini thrown on it too! This is a great snack and much healthier than fried zucchini!

Baked Zucchini Fries from Our Best Bites

Ingredients

  • 1 lb of zucchini, cut in strips
  • 1/2 cup Italian panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine bread crumbs and cheese. In a separate shallow dish whisk eggs. Blot the zucchini strips dry, dip in the egg mixture and then roll in the crumbs. Place on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, flip, and then bake another 10-12 minutes. Serve with the pizza sauce recipe below or ranch!

I had most of these things on hand for the pizza sauce which made it even easier!
