  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a dark baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Mix egg, water, and pepper together in a bowl. Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, garlic powder, and onion powder in a separate bowl.
  3. Dip zucchini sticks in egg mixture, allowing excess liquid to drip back into the bowl. Press coated sticks into the bread crumb mixture until fully coated. Arrange coated sticks on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Spray sticks with cooking spray.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Carefully flip sticks, trying not to break the coating from the zucchini, and continue baking until lightly browned, about 10 minutes more. If not brown enough, turn on the oven's broiler and broil for 2 to 3 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • As a variation, think of using Mexican spices such as cumin, chili powder, and red pepper flakes to really change the whole flavor of this dish. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

As written these did not work for me. Sorry. Everything was coming along nicely until the flip and then it all went South. My breading stayed on but once they were flipped, all of the crisp that...

Loved the flavor! Like that you can change the flavor depending on your meal.
