Zucchini Fries

"These flavorful fries are the first thing we make when the zucchini in our garden is ready," relates Debbie Brunssen of Randolph, Nebraska. "I fry several batches because our family of eight loves these crispy golden wedges." You will, too, at just 71¢ per serving.

    These zucchini fries are very tasty! My family likes to dip them in ranch dressing. I have made this tecipe many times over the years. It was first printed in the Taste of Home Quick Cooking magazine.

    These weren't too bad. Able to get my non-zucchini loving family to eat them. I needed way more chex mix than the recipe called for. I think I'll try another zucchini fry recipe next time.
