Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper on a rimmed baking sheet. Then place cooling rack on top of baking sheet. You may also just place zucchini fries directly on parchment paper or a tin-foil/cooking spray lined baking sheet.
2. Stir bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese together in a shallow bowl. Whisk eggs in a separate shallow bowl.
3. Working in batches, dip zucchini strips into egg mixture, shake to remove any excess, and roll strips in bread crumb mixture to coat. Transfer coated zucchini strips to the prepared baking sheet.
4. Bake zucchini fries in the preheated oven, turning once, until golden and crisp, 20 to 24 minutes. You can then serve with homemade ranch dip. Enjoy!
