These baked zucchini fries are loaded with flavor and a crispy parmesan topping. They make the perfect side dish for any meal.

These baked parmesan zucchini fries are the perfect way to use up your zucchini from the garden and sneak in some extra veggies.  I didn’t grow zucchini this year, but my friend gave me some the other day at a play date and it was the perfect way to use them up. We also made a batch of zucchini muffins, because I can’t go a summer without those. So so good.

MY OTHER RECIPES

I adapted this recipe from my baked parmesan fries and they turned out so yummy. They are more of a wedge (you can also slice them), but if I call them fries, my kids seem to eat them more.  Funny how that works. I don’t ever remember eating zucchini growing up, so it wasn’t until a few years ago when I really started to love it. There’s so many great ways to use it in cooking and baking.

Parmesan crusted zucchini has to be one of my favorite side dishes. Sometimes I cut them in slices and they taste just as good. I love making these for lunch or a snack sometimes as well. Feel free to cut the recipe in half for a small batch. They do taste best the first day when they come hot out of the oven. If you have leftover, I recommend reheating them in the oven verse a microwave.

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium zucchinis, unpeeled, washed and dried
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, more to taste

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy clean up and spray with non-stick spray.

Remove the ends of the zucchini and then slice in half. Then slice each half into 4-5 wedges. Place onto the baking sheet close together. Drizzle the olive oil over the top. Next mix the parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder and pepper into a small bowl. Sprinkle over top of the zucchini. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender, flipping half way through. When you check on them, use a paper towel to absorb any extra liquid in the pan if needed. Broil for 3 minutes or until golden and crisp.

Remove wedges from oven and season with more parmesan, herbs salt and pepper if desired. Enjoy them while they're hot! These are best served immediately.

Enjoy!
