I love oven roasted vegetables. I think it’s the best way to cook them, don’t you?

The oven gives them a nice bit of crunch and the flavor is better, in my opinion. But sometimes I want a little variety in how I cook my zucchini.

If you’ve ever grown zucchini in your garden, you know it can be overwhelming trying to use it all up!

I know one of the biggest concerns is how to keep zucchini from getting soggy when cooking. Zucchini squash has a high water content, so we want to keep our strips thick rather than very thin, and use a fair amount of salt in bread crumb coating.

How to Make Oven Baked Zucchini Fries:

Start by lining 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

How do you cut your zucchini into strips like French fries? Cutting your zucchini in quarters will make it easier to cut strips.

First you need to cut off the ends of each zucchini. Next cut it in half in the middle. Then cut each of the zucchini halves in half, lengthwise. Finally cut those sections into strips.

Place each strip on the lined baking sheets, keeping them spaced out and not touching.

In a large bowl, mix together the panko, bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Whisk 4 eggs in a small bowl.

Now for the fun part. Set up a work station with bowl of flour, eggs and then bread crumb mixture, side by side. It’s basically a zucchini fry assembly line.

I try to use one hand for dredging through dry ingredients and the other hand for dipping in wet ingredients. This will minimize the mess a bit (on your hands at least).

You’ll do these next steps with one zucchini strip at a time.

Cover your zucchini fry in flour, then dip into the eggs, and finally put it in the bread crumb mixture and coat generously.

Place the coated zucchini fry back on the lined baking sheet and repeat until all of the zucchini fries are coated for baking.

Put the baking trays in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping them over halfway.

When done baking, zucchini fries should be tender and golden brown. After removing from the oven, allow them to cool for about 5 minutes before serving.

To make the dip, mix together all ingredients (Greek yogurt, lemon juice, garlic powder) in a small bowl.

Give your creamy garlic yogurt dip a taste test and add salt and pepper as needed.

This recipe makes about 4 servings, so if you need to make more than that you can prep another batch of zucchini fries while the first one is still baking in the oven.
