Are you making this? 
1/4 c Nonfat egg; substitute
Nonstick butter garlic
1 lb Zucchini (4-each); washed
1/4 c Grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 c Italian bread crumbs

Original recipe makes 4



NOTE: If you cannot find butter-garlic spray, use butter spray and substitute garlic salt for the salt. 1) Cut each zucchini lengthwise into 4 strips. Dip strips into egg substitute, then roll in bread crumbs to coat. Arrange in single layer on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Lightly spray strips with cooking spray. 2) Bake in a preheat 450F oven until browned and fork-tender, about 25 minutes. Lightly spinkle with salt to taste and Parmesan. NUTRITION estimated by publisher: 85 cals, 2g fat (21% cff). NOTES : You can achieve a flavor close to that of deep-fried zucchini strips by using nonfat egg substitute and bread crumbs as a batter, then baking the zucchini in a hot oven. Theres a clean, non-greasy taste to the baked strips that you might like even better than the taste of deep-fried.

I made this recipe with eggs instead of the egg substitute. Also cooked it on a Silpat and skipped all the sprays. Lightly sprinkled the zucchini with both salt and garlic powder before putting into the oven. I usually cook with my own breadcrumbs but followed the recipe and used canned Italian crumbs. I kept wishing that I had either used my own bread crumbs or Panko. My husband said, 'It needs some flavor.' Next time, I will try it with Panko and some cayenne pepper with the salt
