    Chef PotPie's Note:

    These are really good and have the added bonus of very little fat! We eat these often during the summer, sometimes in place of oven "fries" made with potatoes. You can add some cayenne pepper for a kick if you want. Give them a try and tell me what you think! EDIT!: Given some reviewers advice, I tried them again. 45 minutes was way too long for us, we just ended up with a crispy shell and no zucchini left. But 30 minutes was very good, keeping the taste of the zucchini, with one turn. The problem with the "flouriness" not cooking away, I've found that if you spray them VERY well with cooking spray it resolves this problem for me. I'm editing the recipe to reflect this.

      DH made these tonight and they are fantastic! He didn't use even use an egg (we're out) and he used some seasoning salt instead of garlic salt. Nice change of pace from the usual steamed zucchini. And it smelled great, too!

      Great fries! I used one large zuccini and one egg white... I cut down the other ingrediants in approximation, and it turned out fine. I think I cut the fries TOO thin becuase they were floppy, but still very yummy dipped in a fat-free ceaser sauce! Thanks!

      LOVED these! Even my anti-veggie kids ate these. Excellent recipe. I was running short on time, so didn't get them quite as crispy as I wanted, but still really yummy. One of the previous reviewers has an excellent point....you MUST cut the pieces small. The bigger ones ended up soggy. I will make these again and again. Thanks!
