  • 4 medium zucchinis
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Trim the ends of the zucchinis and cut them into sticks, similar to the size of French fries.
  3. In a shallow bowl, combine breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.
  4. In another bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten.
  5. Dip each zucchini stick into the beaten eggs, allowing excess to drip off, and then coat it evenly with the breadcrumb mixture. Place the coated zucchini sticks on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Lightly spray the zucchini sticks with cooking spray to help them turn golden and crisp up in the oven.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the zucchini sticks are golden brown and crisp, turning them halfway through for even cooking.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving. These zucchini sticks are best enjoyed with marinara sauce or your favorite dipping sauce.
