Zucchini Fries are a nice change of pace from classic french fries as a pairing with a burger, like our Pepperoni & Sausage Pizza Burgers.
Test Kitchen Tips
For the crispiest fries, once the zucchini sticks are breaded, allow them to chill until you’re ready to fry them, about 30 minutes. This helps the breading adhere, resulting in extra-crispy fries.
To keep Zucchini Fries warm, preheat oven to 300°. As fries are done, transfer them to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet and keep warm in the oven.
Line a baking sheet with parchment and place a rack on top. Line a second baking sheet with paper towels.
Combine Parmesan, panko, salt, and pepper flakes in a shallow dish. Whisk eggs in another shallow dish. Place flour in a third shallow dish.
Dredge zucchini sticks in flour, dip into eggs, allowing excess to drip off, then coat in Parmesan mixture, pressing to adhere.
Transfer zucchini sticks to prepared baking sheet with rack and chill until ready to fry, about 30 minutes.
Heat 2 inches oil in a large skillet over medium to 350°. Fry zucchini sticks, in batches, until golden brown, 2–3 minutes per batch. Drain Zucchini Fries on prepared paper-towel-lined baking sheet, season with salt, and serve with sauce.
