  • Season zucchini pieces with salt.

  • Mix panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning in a bowl.

  • Dip zucchini pieces into the beaten eggs and then press into bread crumbs to coat; gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Arrange breaded zucchini onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.

  • Bake zucchini in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Yum! I used seasoned panko crumbs and just a sprinkle of Italian seasoning and garlic powder. I didn't think these were gonna turn out as good/crispy as they were. A great new way to enjoy zucchini...and it's healthy too!!!! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

To our surprise these were fantastic! They were very flavorful and nice and crispy. I used two larger zucchini and baked for 15 minutes at 425 on the lower oven rack. I used about 2/3rds a cup of Panko but kept the cheese and seasoning amounts the same (and ended up with enough left over for another zucchini). I used a Cajun seasoning blend instead of Italian since we had a spicy spinach and feta turkey burger with them but am sure the Italian would be just as tasty. We will definitely have again.

I have made these by shredding zucchini then mixing all together to make a patty. I also add a little garlic and onion. If you really want a super low cal version use egg beaters less panko and fry in pan with Pam. So good and filling! Read More

It's Zucchini season! YAY! Really loved this recipe except I prefer to slice my Zucchini into thin round pieces. I think it just tastes better! The panko on the outside was crazy good. Read More

I liked this recipe and would make it again. I used two store bought average-size zucchini instead of three and had plenty of fries for my husband and I. I salted the zucchini before breading. However I did not have regular Italian seasoning on hand so I used salt-free Italian seasoning. This may have been why the zucchini fries did not seem quite salty enough for my taste. The next time I make this recipe I will try using regular Italian seasoning or use Panko bread crumbs with Italian seasoning added. I think a little garlic powder would also add additional flavor.

This recipe is great. Good way to use up those never-ending zucchinis!! I did use the bottom rack of oven to bake. I baked at 425 for 15 minutes. They browned very nicely. I'll definitely make this again. Read More

Pretty good recipe. I'd tried other recipes that didn't add the Parmesan and they weren't as crisp or tasty. I'd suggest turning at about the 8 minute mark and again at the 13 minute mark for even browning and crispness. I'll make it again. Read More
