Spicy Zucchini Stix

We have an abundant Squash harvest from our garden this year and I have had so much fun developing new recipes to use the squash in different recipes.  We love a spicy and crunchy appetizer and the Spicy Zucchini Stix give me an opportunity to have both.  I served these at a party recently and everyone just loved them, sure hope you like them.

Spicy Zucchini Stix


Spicy Zucchini Stix
Miz Helen's Kitchen
Ingredients
2 to 3 medium Zucchini cut into strips
2 egg whites
1 whole egg
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup Panko Crumbs
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon Chipotle chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
Olive Oil
Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Wash the Zucchini and cut into 1/2 inch X 3 inch strips
Place the strips onto a layer of paper towels and generously sprinkle with salt, set aside
This process will allow the extra moisture to be pulled out of the Zucchini
Next, in a medium bowl  mix the flour, Panko crumbs, cumin, Chipotle chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper together
In a medium bowl whip the egg whites and the whole egg with 1/4 cup water until mixed well
With a paper towel pat the tops of the Zucchini strips until the moisture has been removed
For the breading process, take just a few at a time so you get really good coverage on all sides
Drop several strips into the egg mixture and then into the flour and panko mixture
Generously oil a baking sheet with olive oil 
Place the breaded strip onto a well oiled baking sheet making sure that each strip has room and is not touching the other strip
Bake uncovered for 20 minutes then turn the squash strips and continue to cook another 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned
Remove from the oven and let cool for 30 minutes before serving
Serve with Salsa
Cut The Zucchini Strips


 Pat The Strips Dry


 Bake On A Baking Sheet


Serve The Stix with Salsa

Enjoy!

We are so happy to see you today and glad you could stop by the party and enjoy these Spicy Zucchini Stix with us.  Hope you have a great week and come back to see us real soon!
Peace and Joy
