Tasty Thursday

My mom is visiting which means delicious home cooked meals every night.  It also means that the number on the scale has slowly moved up.  These crispy Parmesan zucchini fries are the perfect healthy snack I am looking for.

3 medium zucchini,  sliced into skinny sticks
2 large eggs, beaten
3 heaping Tbsp. flour
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used panko)
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
1.  Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside. In a small bowl, beat egg with a fork until frothy. In another bowl, place flour, and in a third bowl, place your bread crumbs. Toss the breadcrumbs with garlic powder and Parmesan cheese, and set aside.
2. Dip the zucchini sticks into the flour, then egg, and then into the bread crumb mixture. Make sure all sides get coated well. Place the sticks on the prepared baking sheet.
3. Bake at 425° for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Serve warm with Ranch dressing, marinara sauce, or just as is.
