This weekend I picked up a lovely zucchini at the local organic market. I saw this recipe for baked zucchini fries that I thought would be a nice snack this afternoon. The recipe called for bread crumbs but I didn’t have any, since I’ve purged most gluten from my house. So I decided to make my own Gluten Free Breadcrumbs. You can find the recipe here.
Cut one large zucchini into 3-4 inch long x 1/2 inch thick pieces. Set aside.
You’ll also need 2 eggs. (Or 1 extra large egg.)
Beat the eggs in a small/medium bowl. Dip each zucchini piece into the eggs, then into the breadcrumb mix.
Place on a greased cookie sheet. Drizzle the tops of each piece lightly with a little olive oil.
Bake on 425 for about 10-12 minute then carefully flip each piece over once. Bake for an additional 7-10 minutes or until crisp and golden brown.
Serve warm from the oven with marinara sauce. You’re going to love this snack, and so will your kids!
