How Do You Make Oven Fried Zucchini?

As much as I love deep fried zucchini, I more often prefer a lighter oven baked version without the extra fat and calories. It’s easy to make:

  1. Cut zucchini into wedges leaving the skin on.
  2. Combine panko and parmesan cheese in a bowl with a touch olive oil. Adding the oil at this time will help the coating crisp up.
  3. Beat egg and milk, and toss with zucchini slices.
  4. Dip each zucchini into the crumb mixture. Press the crumbs to each zucchini stick to help them adhere.
  5. Bake in a hot oven on a parchment lined pan.

Serve with a side of homemade aioli for the perfect dipper!

How Long Do You Bake Zucchini Fries?

It depends on their thickness, I usually do them about 15 minutes (give or take), you want them tender crisp. If you want to make oven fried zucchini slices, they will only take about 10-12 minutes to bake, flipping about half way to ensure they are brown on both sides.

Are Zucchini Fries Healthy?

Since this zucchini fries recipe is baked in the oven and has very little oil, they are a relatively healthy option when compared to its deep fried counterpart. If you are watching your waistline, they’re much lower in calories.

If you’d like to make zucchini fries without breadcrumbs for a low carb option, you can use extra parmesan cheese or even a bit of almond flour.
