Baked Zucchini Stickzz

A perfectly light, fresh and healthy appetizer or snack. Baked zucchini sticks. I’ve seen these on at least a dozen different websites and I’ve actually even made them before for a Superbowl party in the past. They’re tasty and easy on the nutrition scale. Also, incredibly EASY… so easy you don’t really even need to follow a recipe. Here’s what you need:

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium zucchini sliced into 3″ x 1/2″ sticks
  • 1 large egg white (or reg whole egg)
  • 1/3 cup seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 2-3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese (any kind/brand)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • cooking spray

Step One:

Preheat your oven to 425° and cut up your zucchini into small 3″ x 1/2″ sticks.

Step Two:

Beat your egg or egg white in a bowl and throw a little bit of salt and pepper into it. Then put your breadcrumbs, grated cheese and garlic powder into a ziploc bag.

Step Three:

Dip your sticks into the egg and then put about 4 or 5 into the ziploc bag and shake ’em up. Next lay your sticks out in one layer on a baking dish, spray them with some cooking spray and put them in the oven for 20-25 minutes. (P.S. if it feels like you need more crumb mixture as you’re going feel free to throw more of the bread crumbs, cheese and garlic powder in).

Step Four:

Enjoy! Don’t they look good? They almost like pseudo mozzarella sticks…hah…they don’t taste the same…but they ARE tasty in my opinion! They go perfect with some marinara sauce or some ranch on the side.
