Yield: 6 Servings
|3 tablespoons||Olive oil|
|1||Egg; lightly beaten|
|½ cup||Ritz cracker crumbs|
|½ cup||Romano cheese; grated|
|Salt and pepper; to taste|
Trim and peel zucchini and half them lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and cut squash into french fry sized pieces. Transfer to a bowl. Set oven at 400 degrees. Grease a rimmed baking sheet with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.
Combine milk and egg in small bowl. Pour it over zucchini and toss well.
Mix cracker crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper; put on a plate. Using tongs lift zucchini, one spear at a time, from the egg mixture. Shake off excess liquid. Dip each spear into crumb mixture, coating evenly. Transfer to baking sheet. Sprinkle with any remaining crumbs and drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Bake in oven for 5 minutes. With spatula, turn fries over and continue baking for another 5 minutes, or until crumbs are brown and zucchini is tender when pierced with a skewer. Transfer to a plate and seve at once.

Enjoy....Tom, SC P Gardens. Lynn Thomas' notes: Made this 10-24-97; used roasted garlic flavored oil and breaded the sticks by putting in a bag with crumbs and shaking. Delicious dish and easy to do.
