Zucchini Week- Day 6: Oven Baked Zucchini Sticks

I have always been a fan of fried zucchini.  It is just so delicious, especially with some marinara sauce or ranch!  Mmmm.  I have seen oven baked zucchini sticks on various blogs for years now and kept meaning to try them.  Well, Zucchini Week finally gave me enough motivation to do so and I'm so happy I did.  These were delicious and super simple to make!  I could see these being a big hit with kids!

Oven Baked Zucchini Sticks
3 medium zucchini cut into thick matches
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix together bread crumbs, cheese and seasonings in a large plastic bag.  Coat zucchini with olive oil by mixing together in a bowl.  In small batches, put zucchini in bag of breading to coat.  Place on a greased baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Turn zucchini.  Bake for additional 15-20 or until golden brown. Enjoy!
