Making the tilapia last night reminded me of another breaded favorite of mine, the zucchini fry. Yes, yes I know they aren't really fries but when you are craving something and want that fry like experience, dipping in ketchup and all, this may satisfy you.
The toddler and I knocked off a batch for lunch today. However, the husband won’t go near them with a ten foot pole. Fine be me, I don’t want to share anyway. :~)
- 1 medium-large zucchini cut into large fry like pieces
- ½ cup (30g) Fiber One Cereal (or All Bran)
- ¼ cup (20g) Parmesan Cheese
- ½-1 tsp onion powder
- ½-1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
- Salt & Pepper
- 1 egg beaten
- Non-stick cooking spray
Preheat the broiler.
Place the cereal, parmesan cheese, and spices, in a blender or food processor to make the breading. Put the breading in a medium Ziploc bag.
Dip the zucchini slices in the beaten egg (you could use just the white) and drop about half the batch in the bag. Shake to coat. It will be easier to shake if there is air in the bag. Sometimes I blow a bit in the corner of the Ziploc before I seal completely.
Spray a foiled line cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray and place the coated zucchini. Spray the tops with a little more coking spray.
Broil 2 racks from the top for about 2-3 minutes a side.
