Baked Zucchini Fries

My husband doesn't like it when I mess with his food, and I do it all the time. I have replaced his pizza crust with cauliflower, his chips with kale and all sorts of other experiments. Most of the time, he grin, eats the food and then runs out to McDonalds for a hamburger when I am not looking. Not this time. He like these Baked Zucchini Fries so much, he said I needed a husband approved stamp for them. 

These delicious fries are easy to make with pretty simple ingredients. They are delicious and will leave you wanting more, just how I like my fries. 
You will need:
Zucchini, sliced into long strips like fries, I used two of them
1 egg, you can use the whole egg or just the egg white, slightly beaten
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (this is not the powdered kind!!)
1/2 cup bread crumbs, I used a mixture of half Panko, half Italian. You need the Italian for the seasoning.
Mix the egg and milk together in one bowl and the Parmesan and the bread crumbs together in another bowl. Dip the fries first in the egg mixture and then in the bread crumb mixture. Place the fries on a sprayed cooking sheet (don't forget the spray). I dumped the remaining crumb mixture over the fries once they were on the sheet.
Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes at 420. These are a new favorite in our house, a favorite that is definitely husband-approved.
