Zucchini Fries for 2 Recipe

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

Low carb version: I made these using just Parmesan cheese instead of flour and corneal, and seasoned the Parmesan coating with garlic and pepper. They were good! The bigger the piece the better, in that they stayed firmer. I used small to medium sized zucchini's, cut it in 2 (in the middle, not lengthwise) then quartered each half. Sprinkled them with lemon juice before eating with ranch dressing.

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!!
