I was really excited/nervous to make these. I knew they would either go over really well, or the kids would have a hissy fit and that would be the end of the night. I'm not a mom who makes more than one meal - if they don't like what I make, they go hungry until the next meal (night time snack).
So the first thing I did was cut up the zucchini, sprinkle it with salt and let it start to dry. Then I made the dip. Everything going well - following the recipe. I finished the dip after about 20 minutes and it says to leave the zucchini for over an hour, but I am impatient, so I dried it off with a towel after only 20 minutes.
Then came the coating! After reading the warning on the website, I made sure that only one hand was getting wet in the eggs and I kept the other hand compeltely dry. It worked really well. And remember, only one zucchini at a time! I changed up the recipe here though. Instead of Panko, I used regular bread crumbs. And instead of grated parm, I used grated chedder. The bread crumbs worked great, the chedder cheese not so much. It just didn't mix nicely into the crumbs and then I was left with a bunch of cheese at the end (which I sprinkled over the sticks on the cookie sheet). Then I popped them in the oven!
First, the dip. It sucked. It was gross and I'm not sure if I messed up somewhere in the recipe or what, but we did not use it! However . . .
With a little bit of ketchup, both my kids ate up the entire cookie sheet of zucchini sticks! I was so happy! That was all they wanted for supper! I myself (on a little bit of a diet) used hot sauce instead of ketchup, but I'm thinking I might make them again and use salsa!
