Oven Baked Zucchini Sticks

I’m always looking for new ways to make fresh veggies more appetizing for the Man.  I happen to love zucchini and want to have more of it on a regular basis.  I have probably a dozen or so recipes now on cooking (or not cooking) it, and I really like this one.

Word of caution:  The length of time cooking it really depends upon how thick or thin your slices are.


  • 2-3 medium-sized zucchini … or one really fat one like I had
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs or panko – use whatever to your taste
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt or onion salt works well too
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Preheat over to 450. Spray large cookie sheet with spray of your choice. Slice zucchini length ways, roughly 1 1/2 thick or whatever you like. You can also cut it into rounds as well – unless the whole ‘stick’ thing gets to you. Toss zucchini in a bowl with olive oil to coat. Mix the rest of the ingredients together in another bowl and coat each slice of zucchini. Lay out the slice on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Turn zucchini and bake for another 10 minutes or until golden brown.

I used panko crumbs and it came out pretty good.  This is being added to a more regular rotation of our dinners. *grin*
