This is a recipe we use in our house every week. Most Mondays, the tradition is to eat homemade buffalo wings and zucchini sticks (a healthier alternative to one of my favorite meals – buffalo wings and fries). I thought I would share the recipe with you, cause seriously, this is some good eating! I got this recipe from Skinnytaste, so here it is!
Baked Zucchini Sticks
- 3 medium zucchini sliced into 3″ x 1/2″ sticks
- 1 large egg white
- 1/3 cup seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs (I substituted Italian-seasoned Panko crumbs)
- 2 tbsp grated Pecorino Romano cheese
- cooking spray
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- fresh pepper
In a small bowl, beat egg white and season with salt and pepper. In a ziplock bag,place breadcrumbs, garlic powder and cheese and shake well.
Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
Place the breaded zucchini in a single layer and spray more cooking spray on top.
Bake at 425° for about 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
On a side note, this has been a very neat experience, the A to Z challenge. My month got crazy busy, which it usually does when I take on challenges like these. I may be taking some down time in May, but I won’t stop blogging completely. Hope you have a great Monday!
