“Oven Fried” Zucchini Sticks

I recently received a call from relatives in Michigan looking for one of my recipes. Try as I might, I couldn’t find it. Well, they did later that week and sent it to me again so I thought I’d post it again. Denise’s family is super picky and this recipe was one way that they’d actually eat zucchini. With gardens overflowing with zucchini, I thought it’d be a good idea to post it again.

Check out this recipe for “Oven Fried” Zucchini Sticks. It gives you that same texture and flavor as deep frying without all the fat, calories and guilt!
