Kittencal's Fried Parmesan Zucchini Sticks

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

These have been a long time family favorite, use only dry breadcrumbs for this as fresh will not stick to the zucchini, the cayenne is only optional add in for some heat --- if desired you may slice the zucchini into rounds instead if sticks--- also see my Kittencal's Italian Zucchini-Mozzarella Patties

We loved these! Made for dinner tonight as a side dish. They were very easy and quick to throw together. I used Italian seasoned breadcrumbs, so I omitted the Italian seasoning and some of the garlic powder. I also left out the seasoning salt to cut down on sodium. Ended up cutting the zucchini into rounds. I was very impressed with how they turned out - especially since my husband (who's not so much into any veggies beyond french fries ;-)) said they were good and he'd gladly eat them anytime. Thanks for the awesome recipe!!!!
