Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 450ºF. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  • Cut your zucchinis in half, then in half again, then those halves into quarters. It will make 16 "fries".
  • In a small bowl, beat the 2 eggs.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the pork panko, italian seasoning + garlic powder. Stir to combine.
  • Dredge each zucchini fry in the egg, then in the pork panko until it is fully coated. Place on the baking sheet. Repeat with all the zucchini fries. Space out the zucchini fries on the baking sheet so they are not touching, otherwise they will steam and not get crispy.
  • Bake for 25-25 minutes, flipping half way through, until it is crispy and golden brown.
  • Serve while warm. Great with my homemade ranch dressing!
  • See the Recipe Notes below for more tips, FAQs and substitution info!

Notes

Air Fryer Instructions: Follow the above prep instructions, but place the dredged zucchini fries in a single layer in your air fryer. Cook at 400ºF for around 10 minutes until crispy. You will have to repeat several times to get all the zucchini fries to fit
Pork Free: If you don't eat pork, you could substitute almond flour. They won't get as crunchy, but still a good low carb breading. If you're not worried about it being low carb, regular panko or gluten free panko would work as well. Same quantities for all substitutions.
Egg Free: I've never tried it, but you *should* be able to use a flax egg or chia egg in place of the egg to keep this egg free. You'll need 1 tablespoon flax seed meal or chia seeds soaked in 2.5 tablespoons water for 5 minutes.
Reheating: To reheat, bake in a 450ºF oven until warm and crispy again. Usually 15ish minutes.
