These were pretty good! They were quick and easy to make. I would add some salt next time, but other than that, the bread crumb mixture was really good.
These are great! DH and I almost always eat Fried Zucchini or Onion Rings with our pizza and these are a great Guilt-Free way to enjoy them! The first time I made them I didn't add anything extra because my Italian Breadcrumbs are already seasoned and have cheese added. They were good but powderey. Made them again adding the fresh grated Parmesan (still no extra seasonings because of the seasoned bread crumbs) and it made them better. I double dipped them to make a thicker coating and they came out nice and crispy. Thanks for a great recipe!
Wonderful zucchini sticks! Great flavor from the cheese and herbs, and healthier as they are baked instead of fried. Served as is for a side dish; would be a great appetizer with the dipping sauces you suggested. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2011 event, recommended by NorthwestGal
