Parmesan-Panko Zucchini Fries

So! We had these with our burgers last night and my goodness they were tasty. My only problem was that I should have salted the zucchini before breading them. The recipe I had used did actually suggest salting both the flour and the egg. So that's what I am going to do next time.

Parmesan-Panko Zucchini Fries

3 zucchinis, trimmed
1/4 cup flour
salt and pepper, to taste
2 eggs, beaten
Panko breadcrumbs
About 3/4 cup Parmesan
2 tbsp dill
olive oil spray

Preheat oven to 425 (my oven runs hot so I did 400) and position a rack to the center of the oven. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a big bowl, add the flour, a generous amount of salt and a bit of pepper. In another bowl, put your beaten eggs and in another bowl, put the Parmesan, Panko and dill and mix thoroughly.

Cut the zucchinis crosswise in the middle and cut each half into eight wedge sticks. Add all the zucchini sticks to the big bowl with flour, and toss around to make sure each is coated. Shake off excess flour and dip your zucchini fries into the egg, then roll in the Panko-Parmesan mixture.

Line the fries up as shown in the photo, spray with the olive oil spray and bake for 15 minutes. To ensure even cooking, at the 15 minute mark turn your pan around and cook another 10 - 12 minutes (again, my oven runs hot so they were done at 10 minutes).
