Zucchini Fries for 2 Recipe

Publisher Photo
I often make these fries for my husband and myself—especially when our garden is full of zucchini. The cornmeal coating gives them a nice crunch. —Sarah Gottschalk, Richmond, Indiana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 19, 2012

These fries are delicious and a tasty new way to use up zucchini. I used 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper instead of chili powder, whole egg, & dipped them in ranch dressing. I love that they're baked & not deep fried.

Very good, with a little added garlic. I didn't have a red sauce, so I used Durango Diner Green Chili Sauce ... and sprinkled fries with parmasean cheese. That gave them a lot of pizzaz!!

I made this recipe using a large zucchini from my garden. The whole family liked the fries. We used spaghetti sauce and honey mustard for dipping. It is a winner!
