  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan or gruyère cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut the two zucchini into 16 sticks. To do this, start by trimming the ends of both zucchini. Next, quarter both zucchini lengthwise so you end up with 8 long pieces. Finally, cut each piece in half crosswise to get 16 shorter triangular-shaped pieces.
  • Beat the egg in a shallow bowl. You want to use a bowl that will be large enough to dip the zucchini pieces.
  • Combine the Parmesan and garlic pepper in a second shallow bowl, again ensuring that it’s large enough to dip the zucchini pieces.
  • Take one zucchini strip and dip the cut sides into the egg. Once the cut sides are coated, dip the zucchini into the Parmesan mixture until well-coated.
  • Place the zucchini strip on the baking sheet with the skin side down.
  • Repeat with the remaining zucchini.
  • Once all the zucchini has been coated and placed on the baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast until the zucchini sticks are golden, about 15 to 20 minutes.


This recipe is for 4 servings of zucchini fries. If you cut both zucchini into 8 pieces, then one serving will be 4 zucchini fries.
This dish is best served immediately.
If you have leftovers, they can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. The exterior will lose some of its crispiness, but you can pan roast or bake the fries to reheat and try to re-crisp the outsides.
