Reviews for Zucchini Fries for 2
"Actually this was a "Zucchini Fries for One" recipe as my hubster doesn't care for the squash. More for me! I liked the seasonings; didn't care for the baking. The second time I fried them and they turned out crisp and wonderful."
"These were terrible, and I love zucchini. I will not be making these again."
"I made these the other night to serve with hamburgers and wanted a change from plain old French fries. We both give them a 5 star rating but I did have to make extra coating mixture to be able to coat all of my zucchini slices. We just ate ours like French fries with ketchup but they were also just as good without it too. Will be making these again. Thanks for the recipe."
"Husband and I thought these were easy and great!"
"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."
"The best ever!!!!"
"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!!"
"Similar to what I do already - added bread crumbs - whole egg - DELICIOUS!!! I eat them plain, husband ate them with RANCH dressing."
"love these fries! make them once a week during the summer. I like to double the garlic powder and use freshly ground pepper!!!! A summer favorite!"
"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!"
