These fast-food fry knock-offs are not just tasty—they're good for you, too. Swap any summer squash for the zucchini and try different seasoning mixes.

Ingredients

  •  4 spray(s) olive oil cooking spray   
  •  1 tsp Italian seasoning   
  •  1 1/2 Tbsp all-purpose flour   
  •  3/4 tsp table salt   
  •  3/4 cup(s) dried plain breadcrumbs, panko-variety suggested   
  •   2 medium uncooked zucchini   
  •   2 large egg white(s), whipped until frothy (almost soft peaks)   

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix together Italian seasoning, flour and salt. Place bread crumbs in another small bowl.

  • Slice each zucchini in half lengthwise and then each half into 2 pieces widthwise. Next slice each zucchini chunk into 4 fries. Dredge a zucchini fry in flour mixture and then dip into egg whites; dredge in bread crumbs. Place coated zucchini on prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining ingredients; liberally coat with cooking spray.

  • Roast, turning once, until desired crispness, about 12 minutes. Yields about 8 fries per serving.

Notes

  • Use this technique with any summer squash or eggplant. It also works great with thick-cut onion rings or even green tomatoes.

    For extra crispy fries, increase the oven temperature to 500ºF and knock 2 minutes off the cooking time.
