sounds good- I have done something similar. no egg dip just slice zucchini in half lengthwise, wipe to dry, butter, cover with parmesan etc. broil ( I use a toaster oven) til browned

I have a question. I would rather bake than fry. Is it possible to use cooking spray and bake the zucchini? Does anyone have a suggestion for time and oven temperature to do this?

Yes! Fiery Zucchini Fries Makes: about 48 zucchini strips Cooking Time: 15 min Ingredients 3 medium-sized zucchini (about 1 pound total) 1 1/2 cups crushed nacho-flavored chips 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 2 eggs Cooking spray Instructions Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. Cut each zucchini in half crosswise then cut each half lengthwise into french-fry-like strips. Place the chips, garlic powder, salt, and cayenne in a shallow dish; mix well. In another shallow dish, whisk the eggs. Coat each zucchini strip in the egg mixture and coat completely with the chip mixture; place on prepared baking sheet. Spray fries with cooking spray and bake 15 minutes, or until crispy. Serve immediately. Note Serve Fiery Zucchini Fries with your favorite dipping sauce.
