Want to add more seasoning to your basic zucchini fries?
Some of that dry ranch seasoning from a packet
You can also use panko instead of the seasoned breadcrumbs, but I do like the breadcrumbs better
What to dip zucchini fries in?
Can zucchini fries be frozen?
Yes! If you have a bunch of summer zucchini still from your garden, and you want to use it up, freeze ‘em!
After you bake them, spread ‘em out on in a single layer on a baking sheet and pop them into the freezer. Once frozen, transfer them to a ziptop freezer bag or a vacuum-sealed bag.
When you’re ready to reheat, bake in a 400° F oven for about 10 minutes.
Freezing keeps summer squash safe to eat almost indefinitely, but the recommended maximum storage time of 12 months is best for taste and quality.
Use the milk of your choice
Use the milk of your choice here. 2%, whole milk, lactose free. It’s all good. If you have a plant-based milk, go with a neutral flavor like soy milk or unsweetened almond milk. A sweetened plant milk will make your zucchini fries taste a bit like dessert, and that’s not what you want here.
