Baked Zucchini Sticks With A Kick

Last year our garden was a little overrun with zucchini. But that was okay because we found some really great recipes to use it for, and we gave away some to friends and family.

I always like to find ways to get my grandchildren to eat veggies, but sometimes that can be a real challenge.

My daughter Samantha came up with this yummy recipe that the whole family loves. It has a nice spicy kick that the grown-ups love, but isn't too spicy for the kids.


3 medium or in our case 1 extra large zucchini, sliced into thin sticks
2 large eggs, beaten
3 Tbsp. flour
1/2 cup bread crumbs (we used panko)
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. paprika
Salt and pepper, to taste
1tsp. Emeril's Essence


Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray so the sticks won't stick.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs. In another bowl place the flour. In a third bowl, place bread crumbs, garlic powder, paprika, Parmesan cheese and Emeril's Essence, mix well. Dip the zucchini sticks into the flour, then egg, and then into the bread crumb mixture. Roll the sticks around to make sure all sides get coated well. Place the sticks on your baking sheet. Bake at 425° for about 20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
