Make these irresistible zucchini spears for munching while you’re waiting for the hamburgers to grill. When dredging any food in breading, avoid creating clumps by using one hand to roll the item in the egg and the other to dredge it in crumbs. Sprinkle the sticks with coarse salt before serving, if you’d like.
1. Heat oven to 450°F. Spray large rimmed baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray. Combine flour, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, garlic powder and black pepper in shallow dish.
2. Place eggs in shallow bowl. Combine panko, cheese, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and cayenne pepper in shallow dish. Dip zucchini in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, letting excess drip off. Roll in panko mixture, turning to coat all sides. Arrange in single layer on baking sheet; spray with olive oil cooking spray.
3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and tender. Serve immediately.
TIP *Panko are coarse bread crumbs usually found next to other bread crumbs in the supermarket.
