These fast-food fry knock-offs are not just tasty—they're good for you, too. Swap any summer squash for the zucchini and try different seasoning mixes.





Ingredients

4 spray(s) olive oil cooking spray 1 tsp Italian seasoning 1 1/2 Tbsp all-purpose flour 3/4 tsp table salt 3/4 cup(s) dried bread crumbs, panko-variety suggested
2 medium zucchini, about 7-inches each, cut into 4 chunks, then each chunk halved
2 large egg white(s), whipped until frothy (almost soft peaks) Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix together Italian seasoning, flour and salt. Place bread crumbs in another small bowl.
  • Dredge a zucchini fry in flour mixture and then dip into egg whites; dredge in bread crumbs. Place coated zucchini on prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining ingredients; liberally coat with cooking spray.
  • Roast, turning once, until desired crispness, about 12 minutes. Yields about 8 fries per serving.
Notes

  • Use this technique with any summer squash or eggplant. It also works great with thick-cut onion rings or even green tomatoes.

    For extra crispy fries, increase the oven temperature to 500ºF and knock 2 minutes off the cooking time.
