In the best possible way of course. If I were to choose a way to die it would definitely be from zucchini fry-overload.

But seriously, I don’t think anyone could die from eating these fries. They are so, I repeat, SOO healthy for you!

Because…..

(A) They’re fries that are made with the green stuff. Zucchini. AKA: My summer veggie obsession.

(B) They’re baked, rather than fried. We’re eating healthy here, guys.

I don’t know about you guys, but I personally cannot STAND frying food. Not only is it uber-bad for you, but it also usually trashes your nice clean stove and makes your house smell disgusting.

Baked all the way, especially with veggies. Because why in the world would you want to FRY veggies?? Sooo wrong…

So what’s to love about these fries? Let’s see, they are coated to the max with breading, seasoned to perfection, perfectly crispy on the outside and oh my gosh, SO stuff-your-face worthy.

It’s only 8am this morning but I’m kinda wishing I had some of these fries leftover so’s I could shove some in my face for breakfast.

I could seriously demolish a plateful of these fries in seconds.

For real you guys, these fries are one of the BEST things I’ve had in a long time. And you should know that I’ve had a lotta good food over the past few weeks.

These fries trump them all.

By themselves these fries are deadly. Dip ‘em in some ranch dressing and whoaaaa baby…watch out cause you just might end up eating the entire batch right then and there.

Everything’s better with a little Ranch. Fact.

    Who ever says zucchini and fries can’t be amazing are WRONG! I’ve love zucchini fries they are super tasty! I love how you used milk to dip these, that’s sweet. I normally use egg whites – now I’ve gotta try these with milk. I have 4 zucchini plants growing in my garden……now I sit back and wait for fresh fries ;)
    Have an awesome weekend Sarah!

    I am so into this! I tend over-buy zucchini and love learning new ways to prepare it. Giving it a little crunch would be fantastic, especially since it can go kind of limp when cooked. Awesome recipe, as always, Sarah!

    • Sarah says

      Oh, I’m ALWAYS on the lookout for new ways to fix zucchini too—LOVE the stuff! Especially in the summertime. ;) Thanks Allison–have an awesome weekend girl!

    I completely agree with you, Sarah, why would you ever want to fry vegetables?! And it really does make your house smell disgusting and it makes me feel a little disgusting after eating them! I’ve been eating so many zucchinis lately too, but for some reason I have yet to make fries out of them. Fries are one of my favorite things ever and I want to eat all these fries right now!!

    • Sarah says

      TOTALLY uncool on the issue of frying vegetables—sooo not right! And oh my gosh, girl if you have yet to make zucchini fries this summer you MUST try this recipe ASAP. :D

    I totally forgot about zucchini fries! How could I forget, they’re one of my favorite ways to use up zucchini. One year I went a little overboard planting zucchini in the garden. I had more zucchini than I knew what to do with. Best problem ever : )

    The oven baked zucchini fries…. Can you please tel me what I might be doing wrong?
    I’ve tried zucchini fries and chips several times and each time I fail. Mine always come out soggy. I thought I might be putting too much oil on the pan so I didn’t use much at all this time, but still soggy fries.

    • Sarah says

      It might be that you’re not baking the fries at a high enough temperature that’s resulting in sogginess. I bake mine at 425F and that results in a crispy outside. Hope this helps, Valerie!
