Author Notes: A friend recently gave me a humongous zucchini. As you can tell from the picture, I was thrilled to have a freakishly large vegetable in my possession. After a few minutes of playing “let’s answer the huge zucchini telephone”, I was ready to cut that sucker up and make something great. Half of it went to zucchini bread and the other half I used to make zucchini fries. I had a sweet potato laying around so I made sweet potato fries also. If someone ever offers you a giant zucchini, take it and run! Run home and make these fries! And be sure to snap a picture of it first! —Katherine
Makes many fries
- 4-5 Small zucchinis or 1/2 of a giant zucchini
- 1 Large sweet potato
- 2 Eggs
- 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
- 1/3 cup Grated Parmesan or Pecorino cheese
- 1 teaspoon Garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
- 1 teaspoon Cayenne (use less if you don't want it super spicy)
- 1 cup Flour
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- Lots of black pepper
- Preheat oven to 425°
- Cut the sweet potato and zucchini into thick fries. I left the skin on both. If you want to de-seed the zucchini, go ahead.
- Beat the eggs in a large bowl.
- Combine the Panko, grated cheese, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper in a separate bowl.
- Put your 1 cups of flour in a third bowl.
- Dip the sweet potato and zucchini fries in the flour, then the egg and then coat in the Panko mixture.
- Place the fries on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425°, turning a couple of times throughout cooking so all sides get crispy (20-25 minutes).
- I made a Sriracha ketchup dipping sauce for these. I also dip mine in spicy mustard because I am a mustard freak.
