Oven Baked Zucchini Fries

3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
1 (9 in) zucchini, peeled
1/4 cup butter or olive oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease baking sheet. Cut peeled zucchini in half lengthwise and remove any seeds. (I didn't bother with this because I used small zucchini with small seeds.) Slice zucchini into sticks. Combine bread crumbs, cheese and seasoned salt into pie plate. Dip zucchini into butter/oil, then press into bread crumbs. Shake off any remaining bread crumbs and place into prepared baking sheet. (I tossed zucchini in bowl with olive oil, and then with bread crumb mixture because it was faster.)
Bake 15 minutes, and then Broil for 5-10 more minutes, to make them crunchy.

We made this tonight and even Joshua tried and it and liked it. It was a bit strong on taste for me, so I think I'll do a thinner coating next time and cut them a touch bigger than I did.

I used panko bread crumbs, so that probably decreased the strong flavor a bit. Glad the kids liked them.
