Zucchini Fries


  • 4 slices bread, made into bread crumbs
  • 1/2 package taco seasoning
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • Finely grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Make bread crumbs and mix with taco seasoning to taste (about 1/2 package).
  2. Remove the ends of the zucchini and cut the zucchini crosswise into two or three pieces. For thin "fries," cut each of the pieces into 1/4-inch-thick, lengthwise slices, and then cut the slices into about 1/2-inch long fries (OR cut into wedges for thicker fries).
  3. Blot dry with paper towels if strips are "weepy."
  4. Brush fries with mayonnaise, then dip into bread crumb and taco seasoning mixture.
  5. Dust with Parmesan cheese and place on parchment or foil-lined cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until brown and crispy. Thicker wedges will take 15 to 20 minutes to bake and will not be as crispy. Serve immediately.

Serves 4 to 6.
