Baked Zucchini Fries

It has been too long since I have posted a new recipe! I have been really busy! 
I made these the night of Valentines Day and they were really yummy!
I also made baked avocado alongside this but I didn't really like it!

You will need:
2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
2 tbs of garlic salt
1 tbs paprika
1 tbs Italian or pizza seasoning
1 tbs olive oil
1 cup Parmesan cheese grated
1 tbs seasoned salt
1 zucchini 
2 eggs

optional: ranch for dipping

Set your oven to 410 degrees
bake time is 35 minutes

first you pre-heat the oven!
then chop up your zucchini and avocado (even though I don't recommend it because it gets mushy!

 Beat the Eggs and have in a bowl large enough to fit your zucchini in flat
add in your dry ingredients and cheese in a separate bowl to dip them in, and make sure to get them blended in well.
After they are blended evenly add your tbs or two of  olive oil and mix around as well 
(this makes the panko brown and get nice and crunchy!)
set up an assembly line and make sure to have a greased cookie sheet to place your veggies on.
first dip your zucchini into the egg
(makes sure to have one had for dipping in egg and one hand for dipping in bread or you'll get really stiff fingers and chunks in your panko. No bueno!
now dip em in the bread crumbs, i did this by laying them flat and pushing crumbs to the veggie instead of rolling them, this seemed to make the bread stay on better and made for an even coat.

 once you have fininshed battering up all of your zucchini pop em in the oven for 35 minutes. flip them every ten minutes and sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese on top when you take them out!
These are not too difficult (a little messy) but super delish! 
plate these with some fresh sticks and some cherry tomatoes, dip in ranch and its fab!
I hope you enjoy them as much as we did... 
Happy baking!
