Baked Zucchini Fries

Sydney Brown

Sydney created these Baked Zucchini Fries to accompany her Homerun Meatloaf Burger. “I thought I could show kids how delicious vegetables could be when you think of fun and creative ways to add them to your meal,” she says. She likes to serve this with fresh strawberry lemonade. —Sydney Brown, age 11, North Carolina


1 large egg white

1/3 cup milk

½ cup Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs
