Baked Zucchini Fries Recipe

A great appetizer

3 small zucchini
1/4 cup Grated parmesan cheese
1 cup panko bread crumbs season with 1/2 teaspoon each of garlic powder, oregano, basil and parsley
1/4 cup Italian flavored breadcrumbs
1/4 cup olive oil
Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Trim, wash and cut off the ends of the zucchini. Cut into long sticks even in length, about 1/4 inch thickness. In a large plastic bag  add  herbs, cheese,  Italian breadcrumbs and panko shake well. Place oil in a pie plate.  Add zucchini to pie plate to coat with oil.  Place half the bread crumbs scattered on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Use tongs to place zucchini on top of breadcrumbs on baking sheet, dripping off excess oil back into the pie plate. Sprinkle with remaining panko breadcrumbs mixture on top to coat the zucchini. Bake until golden brown they do not usally need turning the oil will crisp them.  Serve with Italian marinara sauce.
