Our garden always produces a ton of zucchini in the summer. This is one of our favorite ways to cook it. Serve with ranch dressing for dipping.

These were good. I did end up needing more breading than the recipe called for but it probably depends on how big your zucchini are. I made a similar recipe to this but it called for baking the sticks instead of frying and I gotta say this recipe was far better. Ranch works nice as a dipping sauce but pizza sauce is good too.
